Saunders Lake – North End (A29 to A30+)

August 30, 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.

Fall colours for the Saunders Saunter A29 to A30 or longer will be a stroll for bird watchers and nature lovers; could be 7km to 10km with an emphasis on the different birds, of which Saunders Lake has plenty. The pictures from August 11th, 2019.

We will meet at the trail head at “A29” (at the bend by the lake on Range Road 244A), leaving at about 9:45 a.m.., but should check the website prior to departure in case of a change (e.g., weather forecast, trail conditions).

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 24-25, or contact the Hike Leader, Stella C. or call 587-879-2955.

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.
