Landowner Rights & Trail User Responsibilities

The Waskahegan Trail is a unique resource that exists only because of the generosity of landowners. Before you set foot on the trail:

  1. Know the landowner rights and the trail user responsibilities.
  2. Check the trail conditions

Miquelon North Hike

Seventeen people came out to hike Miquelon on a beautiful sunny day. The temperature reached 17C, which is very comfortable for the middle of spring. There was still some snow at the south end but it wasn’t too much of a bother. 

We walked up to the beaver pond to see the lodge – it’s huge. Likely there is a large family living there, which would explain why so many trees were gone. 

The migration is happening—we spotting a small flock of snow geese.  We also saw some interesting scat – it looked like a pile of food pellets. Google picture search suggested a raccoon. But a search on porcupines brought up a very similar picture. 

Thanks to everyone for coming out to the hike. You can see all the photos on Flickr.

St. Albert Sturgeon River Hike

Thirteen people came out to St. Albert for the river walk along the Sturgeon River. It’s a popular hike for the midpoint of spring. For one thing, the path is wide, paved, and clear, with almost no slopes—it’s smooth and easy going all the way.

The second thing is that you are likely to see birds, whether they are passing through or planning to stay…

…like this Canada goose.

Lunch was outside at the Good Earth Coffeehouse.

Thanks to Terry for scouting and leading the hike, and thanks to the City of St. Albert for the upkeep of the riverside paths. You can find more photos on Flickr.
