Saunders Lake (A33 to A30)
May 26, 2019 @ 8:45 am - 3:00 pm MDT
Each Spring, the shore of Saunders Lake is the first part of the Waskahegan Trail to be free of snow. This hike, 9.8 km round trip, follows the shoreline, giving views of early waterbirds and red tailed hawks. Lots of sun too, so bring a hat. The hike will leave from the parking area across the highway at Rollyview Road at the end of Saunders Lake at about 9:30 a.m. The pictures from June 3rd, 2018.
In Edmonton we will meet at the Century Park Park & Ride (‘Free Parking’ Section I, near the 109th Street Entrance/Exit), 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.
