Shirley Lake Trail in Elk Island National Park

September 10, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm MDT

The Shirley Lake Trail is Trail #3 at Elk Island, a 13km loop going around Shirley Lake & Oster Lake – trail info for Shirley Lake Trail. The pictures from a Beyond Waskahegan hike May 17th, 2015.

Those of us coming from Edmonton will meet at the Belvedere ‘Park & Ride’ Pay lot (free on weekends) and carpool from there, leaving promptly at 9 a.m.. Participants may choose instead to proceed on their own directly to the trailhead, but should check the website prior to departure in case of a change (e.g., weather forecast, trail conditions) and should arrive at the trailhead no later than 9:40 a.m.

We will start from the park lot at the Shirley Lake Trailhead at about 9:45 a.m. and have lunch at the picnic tables on the east end of Oster Lake. When we scouted on September 3rd we were not the only ones having lunch at Oster Lake.

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 94-95, or contact the Hike Leader, JoAnne B. & Lee S., at 780-487-0645.
