This is one of my favourite local hiking trails

The Kinnaird Park Highlands Trail is one of my favourite hiking trails in Edmonton.

It’s a very easy trail with some great views (though, because I’ve only attempted it with a toddler in tow, I’ve yet to hike the whole thing). It’s one of those places that lets you quickly forget you’re in the heart of the city.

I also appreciate the art wall on the Kinnaird half of the trail. TheĀ paintings and murals created by inner city and at-risk youth really liven up the trail (and are a bit surprising if you don’t already know they’re there).
