Weekend in the Wild


Sign-up: Wednesday Sept. 17 at 17:00 at the club office (Education South B-65H)

Weekend in the wild will be an advanced backcountry hike in Alberta’s ruggedly beautiful Willmore Wilderness Park. We will cover approximately 20km on Friday hiking in to our campsite at Eagle’s Nest Pass. On Saturday we will go on a day hike to the breathtaking Cathedral Valley Ridge. On Sunday we will pack up our camp return home.

This trip will take us to one of the most remote and beautiful parts of Alberta. There is nothing technically challenging about this trip, however it is mandatory that all participants are in excellent shape since this trip will be physically demanding. If you are unsure whether this trip is for you feel free to send us an email or come to Sebastian’s office hours.

Most equipment necessary for the trip can be borrowed from the club, however we do require participants to bring their own sturdy hiking boots. Anything less will not be accepted since a good pair of hiking boots are critical for preventing injuries.

When: We leave for Rock Lake in the evening on Thursday Sept. 25, we will return late on Sunday Sept. 28
What: Physically Challenging, stunningly beautiful backpacking trip
Where:  Willmore Wilderness
How much: $20
