Twin Brooks District & Nature Park
Twin Brooks District & Nature Park is popular for its grassy, tear drop shaped hills similar to the look of Drumlins left behind by glaciers. This Edmonton Park offers guided hikes in the spring and fall, but it is no walk in the park! If you go by yourself, make sure to bring your map of the trails!
Mactaggart Sanctuary Path
Mactaggart Sanctuary Path is a hiking trail located in Southwest Edmonton. This trail is for real adventure seekers, not for a casual stroll! Although the path is less than 3 kilometers long and the trails aren’t steep, portions of the trail can be quite muddy and rocky so make sure you are prepared.
