Whitemud Creek Nature Reserve to Snow Valley – Canceled
April 12, 2020 @ 9:45 am - 3:00 pm MDT
In accordance with our province’s guidelines and directives on social distancing, we won’t be leading any Sunday guided hikes for now. But we are still working on our summer hike schedule. We’re also thinking about what we can do to keep the Waskahegan Trail available and desirable if this isolation continues past April—because by that time, spending time in nature will be more welcome than ever.
In Edmonton we will meet at the McDonalds 23 Ave/110 St – 11007 23 Ave & 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 16-17, or contact the Hike Leader, Johanna F., at 780-298-4119.
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.
