edmonton area hike cache

Recommended Posts


Am new to Edmonton and am hoping someone more familiar with the area can help me.

I'm looking for caches that require a bit of a hike (3km - 16/20km) that are within a short driving distance of Edmonton.

I know there are LOTS of caches, and some with little walks within the city limits, but I prefer to be in more natural settings.

I'm familiar with the Elk Island series of caches.


Thanks !!

Hi 1HT. Welcome to Edmonton.


Just south of Elk Island, you'll find two lesser-known wilderness areas that offer the most remote caches we've been able to muster within a reasonably short drive of Edmonton.


Blackfoot: http://www.geocachin...lng=-112.851567

... trail map: http://www.albertapa...20web%20map.pdf and at the trailheads


Ministik: http://www.geocachin...lng=-112.986667

... (no map, but you can connect the caches)


Bummer you just missed the recent hike event through Ministik; it was a nice 13.5km loop past a good number of caches.


Holler if you have questions; remote caches are my thing too.

Thank you so much for your replies.

I have seen the sign for the Blackfoot Park while enroute to ElK Island but wasn't sure if it was worthwhile though I probably would have gotten around to checking it out.

With your recommendation, I will definitely do so, and not be worried about being let down.

I'm looking forward to Ministik too.

The edmonton forum requires a separate login, so I'll have to create an account there.


Thanks for the good advice. :)
