Bashaw Centennial Nature Trail

Environmental

The town of Bashaw will charm your socks off. As soon as you drive in and spot the Gosling Crossing sign to the moment you leave, Bashaw will bring a smile to your face. The Centennial Nature trail, although very close to residential houses, is secluded and serene. Enjoy a leisurely walk as you follow this trail that weaves through aspen parkland, offering a bench around every corner for you to rest your feet. Abundant wildlife, birds, and plant species will make themselves known to you as you explore this area. There are interpretive signs that guide you along from which you can learn a bit more about native Albertan species. Take your time as you hike up and down gentle hills and enjoy your time hidden away from the village. How to get there: From the Tourist Information Building in the Town of Bashaw, turn East onto 50th Avenue then North on 52nd Street (McMaster Str.). Heading North pass the RCMP building then 4 blocks North the street curves West. Turn North 1/2 block further, and travel another 1/2 block and look for signs. (If you find yourself at Bashaw Valley Lodge you are one block too far East.)
