Waskahegan Staging towards Meadow Shelter

January 23, 2022 @ 10:15 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 10:30 a.m. If the weather (& trail) holds out we will stop for lunch at Meadow Shelter (if tough slogging we may shorten it up a bit with lunch at the ‘bus stop’ style shelter beside Arrowhead Lake). The pictures from January 20th, 2019.

Note: at Meadow Shelter there may still be limitations on the number of people permitted inside & a mask requirement for those inside. There are multiple outdoor tables & benches, so if the restrictions are still in effect & the weather isn’t cooperative we may have to switch up those inside/outside throughout the lunch stop.

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..

Meet at Trailhead (no car pooling)

With the current 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.
