Waskahegan Trail Association, Edmonton's Premier Hiking Trail


309 KM of hiking in Edmonton's Backyard


Waskahegan Trail Association

Hike Schedule Change

Mix - Cloverlawn A36 to Stan's Bench (August 10th): A great hike but not well attended this year due a uncooperative weather so we'll redo it it on August 10th rather than the Ross Creek one that we had to split into 2 sections due to flooding.


News: Trail Maintenance

Maintenance: Wanisan Boardwalk: The boardwalk runs alongside a beaver dam that is two kilometers from the trailhead, just past the Wanisan Stopover. Much of the boardwalk was rotting or broken. The eight of us drove up to the trailhead with the load of replacement planks. We tied the planks onto our new cart (sleek, light, and highly manoeuvrable), and pulled it up to the boardwalk. After we cleared the overgrowth off the old boardwalk, we positioned the planks. There was so much damage that a team had to go back to Sherwood Park for more wood. We adjusted the planks, fastened them with nails applied at opposing angles, and reinforced it all with woodscrews. Tools used today were chainsaw, hammers, power screwdriver, shovel, clippers, and shears. Indispensable personal gear were mosquito spray and rubber boots!

We look forward to seeing you on the trails.
