Whitemud Park to Hawrelak Park, via Laurier Park

February 21, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm MST

An exciting winter hike & the annual “Silver Skate Festival”. The hike will start from the Whitemud Park (River Valley Parking lot at the bottom of the hill near the trails, off Fox Drive at Keillor Road) at about 10:15 a.m.. The pictures from February 16th, 2020.

There is the added bonus is this will be the last day of the Silver Skate Festival going on at Hawrelak Park (snow sculptures & food pavilions).

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 14-15) or contact the Hike Leader, TBD

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.
