A pretty stroll along the North Saskatchewan River, this hike is named after the fur trader and Nor'wester, Alexander Henry, who on February 8, 1811 dashed by these meadows en route to Howse Pass. Campers of all types find this area charming, as witnessed by the numerous informal campsites and sweat lodges that dot the meadows. Walk east along the highway to the guardrail and take a trail to the right that leads down to the river. When you arrive at the North Saskatchewan turn right and walk upstream. This is a delightful walk.
