Waskahegan Staging towards Meadow Shelter
January 20, 2019 @ 9:45 am - 3:00 pm MST
A great hike for the winter, most trails will be carpeted with snow and the wide paths allow the hikers to socialize. There may even be the occasional hawk and some chickadees. The hike will leave from the parking lot at the Waskahegan Staging Area at about 10:45 a.m. The ‘bus stop’ style shelter at Arrowhead Lake will be the most likely lunch stop (if the weather & trail hold out then maybe Meadow Shelter and if tough slogging we’ll shorten it up a bit). The pictures from February 19th, 2012.
In Edmonton we will meet at the Belvedere ‘Park and Ride’ (free lot) & carpool (leaving at 10 a.m.). Participants may proceed there directly on their own, 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 84-85, or contact the Hike Leader John S..
Government of Alberta action plans to beat COVID-19, Albertans are encouraged to assess and manage their personal risk. It is reasonable for people to continue using precautions that will serve their needs.
Waskahegan Trail Association protocol changes for our events:
- We meet at the event location (e.g., trailhead for hikes). There is no organized car pooling, however, participants can make their own car pooling arrangements
- Don’t attend if you are awaiting the results of COVID-19 testing or if you have any signs or symptoms of covid or anything unusual
- 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.
We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 status and may has to make further adjustments.
