Winding trail(s) through northern aspen forest. Used for cross country in the winter and MTB in the no-snow seasons. You can take a few different permutations of the trails to find a suitable length & difficulty.

The trail has many hills, two that are challenging climbs for fit mtb'rs and skiers only. Within the city limits of Edmonton, it gives the rider or skier a sense of being out of the city.

There are a few trails not plowed or used for skiing where snowshoes could be used, please don't walk on the XC trails though.

Wildlife includes white tail deer, beaver, Canada geese, a myriad of waterfowl, white pelicans, pileated woodpecker, and even lynx.

You can spend anywhere from 1/2 an hour to 2 or more investigating all of the trails in the area. Many are lit (at least in winter) for night use.

Directions:



Gold Bar Park can be accessed from anywhere in the Edmonton River Valley. It has it's own parking lot closest to these trails though which can be accessed from 50 Street and 109A Avenue. NOTE: 109A Avenue is on the South side of the river over here. Get to 50th Street from 101 Avenue (Baseline Road) or 106 Ave and go North until you see the sign on the right side of the road. Turn right into Gold Bar Park.


The GPS data attached to this trail shows Access from Ada Blvd and 50 street in northeast Edmonton and going across one of the footbridges.

Man, great snow, in the middle of the city. So easy to duck out for an hour or two ski. I am jealous. There is so little snow here inside Cowgary, I'm looking at grass poking up here and there. Downside Refinery, sewage treatment plants in area, if the wind is the wrong way it might be bad, but there was no wiff of trouble last week! Comment I remember coming here when I just started skiing again and my wife was just XCing for the first time ever. These hills caused us some serious grief. Now, after 12 years down in that other city & 10+ trips/season out to Peter Lougheed, they seem very manageable.
