About Us

Book a hike at the ASCCA

The Ann & Sandy Cross Conservation Area requests that groups of 8 or more book their hike in advance. If there are multiple bookings on the same day we may ask you to reschedule your hike to minimize impact on the area and its wildlife. Groups of 15 or more will recieve a booking confirmation.

Please note that all commercial hiking guides charging hikers a fee must obtain a permit (which includes providing proof of liability insurance) before taking groups of any size on to the Ann & Sandy Cross Conservation Area.  Please contact Greg Shyba at gshyba@crossconservation.org to arrange for a permit.  All hikers who have paid a fee or who are hiking with a commercial guide should ask to see their permit.
