Chris Z. on Strathcona Riverside Nature Trail
Just completed this trail with a 10 year old as a 5 year old. Easy, packed trail. Eagles nest was active! Markers along the trail are nice. Did route A-B-C, which was only 5.5km. Kid friendly, easy trail. Recommended!
Completed north side of trail that went from parking lot to the bridge and across. Dog friendly, as I travel with my pet kid. Trail had some snow which was icy and then large areas of water making it difficult to get around. Still enjoyed walk and look forward to walking it again when snow fully melted.
This was the first time exploring this trail. It is a great walk on a warm winter day! Good boots a must! The trail was well packed for walking, snowshoes or X-country skiers. However, deeper snow is just off the main path and can make walking more challanging. Wonderful and numerous animal tracks everywhere(but did not see many animals this day). Great views of the river and some hearty ducks that have found some open water to paddle in. We were able to find the eagle nest and many others along the path. Looking forward to a revisit in the warmer months.
