No matter the season we Edmontonians like to get out and explore! Did you know: Edmonton has more than 160 kilometres of maintained multi-use trails. That’s a whole lot of exploring to be done!

If you haven’t yet, these are 8 killer spots in the city to get those steps in!

1. Whitemud Creek Ravine

4. Wolf Willow

A common place to find stair runners is at wolf willow stairs with one of the longest and steepest sets of stairs in the city. With that said, the views at the top are well worth the climb and the plethora of trails around the stairs will give you a ton of options.

Deep in the basin of the river is the Devon trails. Head down to the riverside beach for a dip in the warmer months or follow the trails through the park and along the river. Try your hand at the legs of fire stairs!
