Miquelon Provincial Park A85 to D/E

July 19, 2020 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pm 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.

Miquelon Provincial Park has hiking and skiing trails that we rarely get around to visiting, so we’ll try again in the summer. The pictures from May 19th, 2019.

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. (FYI – Meet 9:45 at the Miquelon Lake visitor centre where we will start with a park guided amphibian walk to find frogs, toads and salamanders, followed by walking other trails in Miquelon, or if it gets too wet on the other Miquelon trails, we can progress to Camrose City trails.)

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, page 67, or or contact the Hike Leader Elizabeth B., at 780-672-2873.

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.
