Jackrabbit Trail, Glenmore Reservoir (SW)

Join Lori Beattie for a urban adventure. This walk will start at near Glenmore Sailing Club at 8415 24 st SW walking through the stunning Glenmore Reservoir, returning to start point.  


Walk Description:

We’ll hike along the rolling Jackrabbit trail, a single track trek through the forest alongside the Glenmore Reservoir. Chickadees that land on your hand, intermittent water views and the occasional moose and bear. You never know what you might see on this wilderness walkabout!

Meet place:

Please park in the official parking lot for South Glenmore Park, at the intersection of 90 Avenue and 24 Street, SW. Park in the large parking lot near the playground (not in the sailing school parking lot)


Jackrabbit Trail Summer

All of the urban walks will be around 7-8km with varied terrain. This is the one of a series of our Walking Wednesday series taking place throughout 2016. Join us for another walk this year.
