Look down. Way down. The Beaver River Trestle, at one kilometer long and 60 metres high, is a highlight of the Iron Horse Trail. It is accessible from Cold Lake via three km of the multi-use Trail. Or you can drive to the west end by turning north off Highway 28 at the Y Road and parking at the trail access point. The 300 km Iron Horse Trail connects many of the area’s natural gems and tourist attractions. ATVers use the Iron Horse Trail to access countless kilometres of backcountry trails and cutlines that weave through the region’s rugged terrain.
