Is Transportation provided?
No, transporation is not provided. You will need your own vehicle or take a taxi from your location. You will meet your guide on the east side of the Edworthy Park South Parking Lot. A linkable map will be provided with your booking.
How hard is the tour?
This is an easy to moderate trail with minimal elevation gain and loss of 50m over a ~ 3km loop. We will be hiking at a mellow pace with numerous stops along the way. We will spend most of our time on dirt trails and boardwalks with the return leg on a paved river pathway. In some steeper areas, handrails are available. You can expect uneven, slippery terrain so sturdy walking shoes are strongly encouraged.
Will I need to sign a waiver?
Yes, all participants will need to complete a liability waiver. We recommend you review the waiver before booking your tour. You will sign the waiver once you have arrived at the trailhead and have been given a brief introduction to the day. Any minors must have their waiver signed by a parent or legal guardian before participating on the tour.
