+++Drivers are needed+++:

It's great to live in Calgary! You don't have to travel far to get a quick hike in.

We always seem to hike to the Moose Mountain fire lookout. Let's try something different and before the false summit lets head right and down to the meadows and explore all the beautiful meadows that stretch out further then one would expect. We'll go here/there/up/down Lot's to explore!! You'll have many "digital moments".

Hopefully the sun will be out and the wind light.

~~~~~If you live in the NW, you might want to meet us directly at the trailhead; quicker for you than meeting us at the SW carpool.~~~~~~

PACE: Relaxed pace when doing the uphill portions and moderate for the balance. If you are a "Speed D" please sign up for another hike.

Note that COC event coordinators are volunteers and are NOT trained guides. All participants are responsible for their OWN safety and equipment.
