Walking Summer Outdoor Activities

Alberta has thousands of kilometres of hiking trails, whatever your flavour. From easy to pro, there’s a hike to get you to your happy place: mountains, grasslands, badlands and forests. Where should we start? • Heli-hiking: Get to the top in seconds and start the hike on a high. With just a short helicopter flight, you'll see hidden alpine lakes and meadows. From there, the guided hike can be as chill or adventurous as you’d like. • Winter hiking: Snowy trails transform Alberta’s best hikes into sparkling new terrain in the winter. Pack a thermos of hot chocolate and let the frosty air urge you up to the next frozen waterfall.

The Shadow Lake Lodge experience is a chance to disconnect and unwind, to venture out on the trail without getting in a vehicle, to be fed and nurtured without lifting a finger, and to relax without the distraction of electronics.

Simmons Trail

Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta

Ellsworth Simmons was one of the five men responsible for the creation of the park in 1906. The trail begins at the Shirley Lake Trailhead and makes its way through aspen forest and rolling hills. A few open areas offer a chance to watch beavers and muskrats in action, especially at dusk. This is a short but challenging cross-country ski trail.
