Nature Hike at Mctaggart Nature Reserve / Larch Sanctuary

Nature Hike at Mctaggart Nature Reserve / Larch Sanctuary

When: September 29, 2022 11am

Join us for a hike through the Mctaggart Nature Reserve (one of our family’s favourite places to explore!)  This walk is especially beautiful in autumn as the leaves and larch trees change colour! It’s a tranquil nature escape as well; despite being in the city and near major roads, you can barely hear the sounds of traffic and city life. Instead, notice the wind whistling through the trees, the babbling of Whitemud Creek, the slight ripples of Oxbow Lake and the chipping of white-throated sparrows. The area is also great for bird watching and wildlife sightings. 

Trail conditions: Narrow dirt trail overgrown in some areas and muddy/slippery after rain. Many roots stick out on the trail that could pose a tripping hazard. Lots of sharp, short upward and downward inclines.

Difficulty: Moderate 

Signage is not obvious for parking at Larch Sanctuary. We will be parking on south side of 23 ave, right turn heading east bound (between Rabbit Hill Road and 119 St)
