The Waskahegan Trail is closed until further notice

The Waskahegan Trail is a unique resource that exists only because of the generosity of landowners. Unfortunately, the need for isolation and physical distancing means that the private sections of the trail are closed.

However, we are still encouraged to get outside as long as we follow regulations. As of May 24, we began leading scheduled Sunday hikes on public trails. We also continue to monitor the access of public trails in the region and we're collecting hiking tips.

CBC Radio-Canada visits Trail Maintenance

Des bénévoles nettoient le sentier de randonnée Waskahegan

(Volunteers maintain the Waskahegan trail)

CBC Radio-Canada (the Edmonton station) had been working on a TV series about trails in Western Canada. We missed the cut-off to be in the TV series; however–even better–they came out with the maintenance crew on the Pipestone trail and filmed for about an hour. On the Radio-Canada web site you will see a 2 min video that includes an awesome interview with Yvette Stack (thanks, Yvette & team).

Check out the video – L’entretien du sentier Waskahegan trail (Maintenance of the Waskahegan trail).
