Stoney Creek (from Stoney Creek Centre)

July 12, 2020 @ 9:45 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.

It shouldn’t come as much of a surprise to anyone that it has been wet, so we’ve changed the starting point to the Stoney Creek Centre (“A69” from the map on page 59 in the ‘Waskahegan Trail Guide’).

The very scenic Stoney Creek hike will start from Stoney Creek Centre (5320 – 39 Ave. Camrose) at around 10 a.m.. Depending on how much the trail dries out over the next couple of days we will either –

  • take the route along the west side of Stoney Creek (Pg 59 towards ‘D’ then Pg 57), which will likely still have a bit of mud & water (so bring appropriate footwear); or
  • take the paved town trails which include the Stony Creek loop and the Mirror Lake loop (Pg 59).

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 56-59, or contact the Hike Leader Elizabeth B., at 780-672-2873.

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.
