Miquelon A85 to Past St. F.X. Lookout
August 2, 2020 @ 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:
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.
