A great spot to walk along a beautiful lake full of all kinds of bird species. I took one star off because there is so much bird guano and dog poop everywhere on the trail. It felt like I was playing hopscotch the whole trail, trying not to step in dung.

Wow! This trial was well worth it! You start off from the Group Camping site and walk past a group picnic area to Homesteader Trail Loop. You go uphill for just under 1 km and come to a fork in the path, go left following the orange diamonds that say “Mt Albert”. After that you get a little bit of everything: forest paths, uphill, narrow switchbacks, almost scrambling up a rocky path, steep bits. The view at the top is wonderful. Coming down it’s steep and there is some screw. For this reason I would not rate the hike as easy. The remainder of the descent is beautiful through meadows, forest, and beside pond. The trial is marked well on the way up and a little confusing on the way down but there are enough signs to make sense of it all. Did this with my 47 lb dog, and husband (I’ll leave his weight out...). Great half day hike.

A lovely walk in north Edmonton with lots of birds to watch. It takes about 30 min to walk around at a medium pace.

It can be quite busy with strollers on nice days but very approachable for families.

A great area to bird watch! Among the numerous geese and their cute yellow goslings there are also mallard ducks, grebes, a couple of terns, comorants, red wing blackbirds, and during the summer a pelican. This walk took me approx. 40 min stopping to watch some of the birds and taking in the view of the lake.
