We'll meet at the North Edworthy Park parking lot at 8:45 am to check in and make sure everyone knows how to get to Glenbow Ranch. At 9 am sharp, we'll head out for a 27km drive to Glenbow Ranch Provincial park, just east of Cochrane, regroupinig in the park's parking lot. From there we'll head out into the 3200 acres of native fescue, grassland and rolling hills populated with wildlife (and possible cattle as this is an active cattle ranch). Our activity plan includes approx 3 - 4 hours of snowshoeing plus snack / lunch breaks followed by an early afternoon return to Calgary. Trail choices will depend on snow conditions and group preferences. No doubt, we'll leave with a renewed appreciation of the natural beauty in our own backyard!
