Hiking – Plumper Bay – 22 July 2020

Activity Hiking
Destination Plumper Bay
Date 22 July, Wednesday
Trip Coordinator Norris Weimer
Contact Info norris.weimer@ualberta.ca or 3710.  Please contact the coordinator in advance.
Description A relatively flat and easy hike on old logging roads. The first part is the same as for going to Maud Island, then instead of turning left, we turn right. This part of the trail has not been maintained, yet it is in quite good shape. There is no bushwacking, not even any major deadfall. However, the trail does have some tripping hazard from small branches that have fallen across the trail. 6 km roundtrip, about 2.5 hours including lunch. The destination is a nice grassy meadow on the waterfront of Plumper Bay (the first large bay north of Seymour Narrows). Bring lunch. Bring family radios if you have them (FRS); no problem if you don’t. This is not a narrow trail, we will easily be able to space ourselves to keep covid-safe.
Meeting Place Heriot Bay Tru Value parking lot; we will convoy in our cars from there.
Departure Time 10:00
Difficulty Easy, but part of the route is unmaintained
Costs none
Trip limits Maximum twelve participants, in pods of three or four.  The number of cars is a concern as well as group size.
Dogs?
Notes: Bring lunch.
