Leisure Hiking Event #1



Note it may snow on Saturday. This event will still go ahead, unless conditions are very bad.
Fullerton Loop is a perfect beginner/stay in shape hike that can be enjoyed all year round. Located just west of Bragg Creek, it provides a great opportunity for some fresh air, exercise and sunshine at a time of year when many of us just don't get enough. The plan for this event will be to enjoy a leisurely hike at a relaxed pace, allowing plenty of time to take in the scenery. Even at this pace, expect to complete the loop within 2 hours. Afterwards, we'll make our way into Bragg Creek for refreshments and maybe a light snack before heading home. Please allow at least 4 hours for this event.

Distance: 7km round trip
Elevation Gain: 213m or 692ft (as per albertaparks.ca)

When you get to Alan Bill Pond, park towards the east end of the lot, we will regroup and head out from there. Bring along gaitors and/or icers if you have.

Required Items to Bring:
- Gas money for carpool driver (approximately $5-$8 depending on number in vehicle)
- Hiking Shoes

Recommended Items to Bring:
Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.
- Icers, which strap onto the bottom of your hiking shoes to provide additional traction in icy conditions. Good icers can be purchased at Lee Valley Tools.
