This a 4 kilometer walk in the woods along a creek. It's a pleasant and relatively easy walk unless the trail is slippery with either snow (as we experienced) or spring mud. There are beaver dams in the area and birds depending on season. Chickadees were flying all around in November.

There are a number of bird houses and feeders in the area.

The trail is on private land but permission is granted for hiking the trail.

Directions:

East of Wetaskiwin on highway 13 to township road 264, south on 264 to very near the Gwynne ski canyon ski area. Park off road just across the tracks, follow a very obvious cut line up steep hill to a sign on the left near the top which indicates the trail head.

The sign may have been removed... Downside Very narrow and sometimes the branches and fallen trees block your way. All in all a very good trail, usually you will not meet anyone else so bring a cell phone. Comment very narrow and sometimes the branches and fallen trees block your way.

Downside Navigation is an issue as most people do not go much further than the 2km mark. Comment Chickadee Trail as it is known locally is my weekend haunt when I cannot venture far from home. It does indeed lead to Camp Steeledge, the scout camp, you do need to cross the tracks though. When snoeshoeing I follow the creek usually and access to the trail the trail is straight forward at any point. Trail running is possible here, best in late spring and fall.

Downside After a few KM's, the trail begins to break up and it's tough to navigate. It's supposed to go the Scouts headquarters. Comment Loved the trail. I hiked it and would do it again (although I don't live near Wetaskiwin anymore). It satisfied my trail needs for the prairies.
