Athabasca River trail was fun. One shares parts of this trail with bicyclists and horseback riders.
For our bicyclist friends that share these trails, a piece of advice. Pedestrians have the right-a-way. Period....Your cheap bell does not announce your approach from behind a hiker. Yelling "get your hearing checked", does not sit well with a deaf person.

Super tame at first. Flat broad gravel path hugging the river and the highway on the other side. Not as secluded as I'd prefer. Dodging horse manure was off-putting.
