Hike: Ministik Spilstead (A87) to Horseshoe Lake
August 14, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm MDT
This section of the Waskahegan Trail, about 11 km round-trip, passes through the Ministik Bird Sanctuary, an important bird sanctuary for migratory waterfowl. You can hope to see plenty of wildlife as well as a fine example of muskeg habitat. August is an excellent time to visit here, as mosquito populations are down, but come prepared anyway (with repellent as well as water, sun block and lunch) for another fine day on the Trail. If you have a camera and perhaps a knock-about pair of binoculars, why not bring them too? You won’t be sorry.
For further information, refer to The Waskahegan Trail Guide Book, pages 72–73, or contact the Hike Leader, Gladys V., at 780-941-2459.
Note: due to trail maintenance concerns we’ve switched the August 7th & 14th hikes, ‘Ministik Spilstead (A87) to Horseshoe Lake’ will now be on the 14th rather than the 7th.
