Pipestone Creek A53 to A51
September 8, 2019 @ 8:45 am - 3:00 pm MDT
Another hike that hasn’t been done in a while due to needs for a reroute. Last season trail maintenance addressed the A51 to A52 section along Pipestone Creek, a glorious section of the trail that includes “Len’s Parkland”. This year trail maintenance will address A52 to A51, focusing on the reroute needed for a 2014 landslide near ‘D’ on the map. The hike will leave from A53 (Twp Rd 471/RR 232) (near the sod farm) at about 9:50 a.m.. The pictures June 22nd, 2014.
In Edmonton we will meet at the Century Park ‘Park & Ride’ (‘Free Parking’ Section I, near the 109th Street Entrance/Exit) 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.

- 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.
