Nose Hill Park (NW): Big Sky Views and Single Track Wilderness Trails
From the highest point in Calgary we’ll trek single track trails to viewpoints and drop into aspen-filled coulees to fill up with a dose of mother nature. This urns wilderness walkabout calms the mind and burns off the Stampede calories!
Meet at the Nose Hill parking lot at the intersection of Shaganappi Trail and Edgemont Blvd NW.
All of the urban walks will be around 7-8km with varied terrain.This is one of our Walking Wednesday series taking place throughout 2016. Join us for other walks this year:
Wednesday September 7, 2016: Quirky Neighbourhoods and hidden stairways: Roxboro-Ramsay
Wednesday October 5, 2016: Fall Colours: Glenmore Reservoir
