Miquelon A85 to Past St. F.X. Lookout

August 2 @ 9:30 am MDT

We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 status and will gradually restart our hikes, with some obvious protocol changes listed at the bottom.

There could be saskatoons! We haven’t done this one in for a couple of years. We start Miquelon Provincial Park, going past some of the campsites (with likely a hint of bacon still in the air), exit the park heading along an inlet off Miquelon Lake, past St F.X. Lookout with lunch on the trail rout a round trip of ~8½km. Typically we’d be going to North Miquelon Road but a few years ago too many sloughs have merged & it is now a small lake. The pictures from July 30th, 2017.

The hike will start from the north end of the parking lot of the Miquelon Provincial Park office directly on your own for a 9:45 start. Just check the website prior to departure in case of a change.

If you are new to WTA hikes, then you should visit the Guided Hikes webpage for essential information. For further information specific to this hike, refer to The Waskahegan Trail Guide Book, pages 70-71, or contact the Hike Leader, John S..

Initial protocol changes due to COVID-19:

  • using public trails, in/near the city (not the WTA Trail as virtually all of the trail is on private land and we do not want to impact the landowners);
  • meeting at the trailhead, no car pooling (so the start time reflects driving to the trailhead from the city rather than a 9am meeting point at Century Park or Belvedere Park & Ride);
  • the hike leader will fill out all forms (e.g., signup sheet) & please use the online waver (to minimize what we all touch);
  • Government of Alberta – Guidance on outdoor activities;
  • recommending wearing a face mask (Government of Alberta – Guidance for wearing non-medical face masks);
  • only attend if you are feeling well & comfortable being with the group.
