       I think this trail should be called Camel Humps or something creative to that effect. At the bottom of that trail there is an info sign and it says that area is called Camel Humps. It's been a while since I read it and can't remember exactly what is special about that area. Has something to do with the shape of the ground. I'm not from Edmonton originally so maybe someone can help us out. (I already checked out the almighty internet and there is surprisingly very little about it, maybe I'll wonder down there tomorrow and read it again)

       How about "Camel Flow"?
