2009.07.02 Eighteen Bridge Tour Photos
This is actually mostly about the northeastern section of Edmonton's river valley trail system. The bridges make better reference points though, since photos of trails through the trees all start to look the same after awhile.
High Level and Menzies
Followed by Walterdale
James Macdonald and Low Level
Louise Mckinney Park Foot Bridge
Capilano Foot Bridge
Rundle Park Foot Bridge
Cloverbar Foot Bridge
Beverly and Cloverbar Bridges, and a rail one in there too
Sunridge Ski Hill's inner tube hill
Now I'm kind of lost. Looking back at the footbridge.
Let's try this way
And that really didn't work. Back I go. Still pretty lost.
Something I recognize
Suffice it to say, I wandered around in the trees for far too long before going back to the road by the Science Park that I knew would lead back to Sunridge, and the Cloverbar foot bridge. I was hoping for a connection on the South side past the refinery, but I went up when I maybe should have gone down? Anyway, a lot of backtracking to get back to Rundle Park again.
From the Rundle Park Foot Bridge heading back to the south side
Capilano Foot Bridge again. The scent of the air coming of Goldbar's biofilters is always so pleasant (it really is).
Capilano Bridge Again
Dawson Bridge Again
The stretch of trails between the Dawson and Mckinney is so much fun
LMP foot bridge again
Low Level Again
James Macdonald Again
High Level and Menzies again
Groat Bridge from Mckinnon Ravine
Blurry, but it's a bridge
And a photo from that bridge
Bridge at 131st
Iron bridge and Groat Ravine
And here's a rough map of the route:
I'd never been past Goldbar park before so this was a bit of an adventure.
