Mount Royal and Mission
Leaving MEC we’ll navigate side streets through Connaught, climb the hills of Mount Royal to viewpoints and hidden stairways that connect us to the Elbow River pathway and into Mission. A meandering river walk followed by a trek along the 13 Avenue greenway leads us back to MEC.
