WalkingBridge outRocky

was a nice walk, lovely fall energy but the bridge is collapsed and there is no way around unless you go into the ravine but the dirt is loose so it could be quite dangerous.

the bridge washout as pictured was a bummer, but the rest of it was perfect autumn weather. Minimal mud and dry sticky clay for great traction

Really enjoyed this trail. It is possible to detour around the bridge that is out by going south to the top of the ravine. There are paths that lead back down on both sides.

bridge is out halfway through and its impassable. pretty easy spot but you have to walk one at time because the path isnt wide. There was a nice peaceful little pond in the middle though which i enjoyed stopping at

No markers and easy to get off to another path. High water in some areas after rain made it hard to get around some pieces

The half of the bridge is broken so you might have to turn around and take a safe route because there is a little bug call Marlene Roman around the pond

Wonderful walk and great for gaining foot mobility. It really felt good after. Bridge still out at half way so we only got to see the right half. Left it is next time.

This place is what fairy dreams are made of. Got trails for the most part and easy to deviate from the main trails but on the upside your legs to you to some truest magical places while you are in the city. The trails are over grown, mosquitoes aren’t to bad and there are muddy sections. Over all a place I’m certainly coming back to

Short trail and have a steep but short hill to climb, not recommended for elders or if you have knee problem. A big wet today, lots of bugs and some area has too long grassy so wear long pants and sleeves.

Great trail! We really enjoyed it. Had a mountain trail feel to it right in the city of Edmonton! We saw a lot of wildlife and it was very peaceful but had a nice challenge to it as well. We found it stayed interesting the whole walk and only took about an hour but we explored a little bit as well. The only thing I would say is put on a lot of mosquito spray!!

Our young family loved this trail. Definitely more of a hike than a walk though. Wear good footwear and bug spray. We did half the trail but had to turn back because the bridge is down.
