First time over the Fort Edmonton Footbridge yesterday, and it is very nice indeed. In fact, the entire area is lovely. Edmonton’s trail system never fails to impress, or surprise. I’ve walked along the Fort Edmonton trail (at the end of Whitemud) many times before, but never made it as far as the bridge, which is a newish construction.
The beautiful trail on the north side of the bridge follows the river, and Maggie was able to take
advantage of the low banks with several very enthusiastic dips into the North Saskatchewan. The water must have been cold! One portion of the trail was completely eroded. A bit of graceless leaping and climbing to get to the other side (once we got past the orange caution fence) and then back again. Gorgeous fall day.
