Ministik Bird Sanctuary to Fire Tower

October 17 @ 9:45 am 3:00 pm MDT

A nice hike we haven’t done in a while and it was a wet day in mid-September so only 5 people could make it, so we’ll try again in mid-October when the fall colours should be spectacular. We’ll be starting on the trail to William’s Lake (where we had lunch on June’s ‘Ministik Berg’ hike), following a route that is a combination of old road & trails towards the UofA’s Ministik Field Station and on to an old Fire Tower.

We’ll meet at the trail head by the entrance to UofA Ministik Station (A88) on Township Road 510 (1 km west of Range Road 210) at 9:45 a.m.. The hike will leave from ‘A88’ at 10:00. The pictures from September 12th, 2021.

Meet at Trailhead

With the current Government of Alberta action plans to beat COVID-19, Albertans are encouraged to assess and manage their personal risk. It is reasonable for people to continue using precautions that will serve their needs.

Waskahegan Trail Association protocol changes for our events:

  • We meet at the event location (e.g., trailhead for hikes). There is no organized car pooling, however, participants can make their own car pooling arrangements
  • Don’t attend if you are awaiting the results of COVID-19 testing or if you have any signs or symptoms of covid or anything unusual
  • Only attend if you are feeling well and are comfortable being with the group.
  • Individual event coordinators (e.g., hike leaders) and event locations (e.g., buildings within the parks) may have additional requirements that MUST be followed at all times.

We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 status and may has to make further adjustments.
