Mix Cloverlawn (A39 to past A38)
May 5 @ 8:45 am - 3:00 pm MDT
The “Mix Cloverlawn” hike will be a modification of 3 favourites (Stan’s Bench, Source of the Blackmud & Coal Lake North End) to accommodate a lost section of the trail along Mud Lake (as we can no longer get all the way to “Mix Stopover”).
We will start at A39 (on Township Road 483A) and initially cross a farm before starting a climb that has amazing views of Mud Lake, Coal Lake and the Gwynne valley. Followed by some twists & tuns through the woods past an unusual “pet cemetery” before descending down past A38 where we will have lunch near Mud Lake before returning. The pictures from July 1st, 2018.
At “Stan’s Bench” we’ll stop to honor Stan Skirrow who’s devotion, passion and energy made what the Waskahegan Trail and its organization what it is today.
In Edmonton we will meet at the Century Park ‘Park & Ride’ Section E (it’s free on weekends) and carpool (leaving at 9 a.m.). Participants may proceed there directly on their own, but should check the website prior to departure in case of a change (e.g., weather forecast, trail conditions).
