Points of Interest

1. Jumpoff Point

Park along Heath Road and you can jump on the trail at this point. If you look behind you, you will see all of the various community tie in points to the trail system.

2. Nice trails

These are probably the widest paved trails in the river valley.

3. First Bridge View

The overpass comes into sight

4. Well maintained

The trail system in this area is immaculate. Because of the elevation drop off, there is a couple of switchbacks.

5. The Anthony Henday Overpass

This is where we are headed to get some amazing shots of the river below

6. The Overpass

These overpasses make up a small section of the ring road that will completely circle Edmonton when it is completed.

7. Pedestrian Bridge Under the overpass

This suspended pedestrian bridge was added to the design of the overpass to allow for connectivity across the river. Already, communities on both sides of the river enjoy this bridge.

8. Looking upriver

The view upriver on the North Saskatchewan.

9. River banks

The river from the opposite side of the bridge
