Situated on 550 acres of parkland next to the beautiful shores of Bennett Lake, the Strathcona Wilderness Centre offers 12km of trails through woodland, meadow and lakeshore terrain. See the SWC's website for further info and their map.

We will start out counter clockwise on the outer trails then stop for a lunch break at one of the group picnic sites. After lunch we will meander on some more outer trails plus some inner ones. There are lots of rolling hills on some of the trails we’ll be heading on.
