This section provides single track connection boardwalk (south) area of the old Strathcona Science Park and the single track connection to the Sunridge/Science Park bridge (north). It avoids a full descent to the North Saskatchewan River but does drop about halfway down the embankment, providing a stiff climb in either direction.

Access Info

Parking is available throughout the old Strathcona Science Park, accessed from 17 Street (shared with Sunridge Ski Area and the biathlon centre).
