Ferguson Hill Road is closed to vehicles in the winter. It's groomed for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and snowbiking (fat-tired bikes). This is a great way to access the top of the Cypress Hills Plateau or a fun way to descend. The last 100 metre descent to Elkwater Campground is challenging. Ferguson Hill Road connects with Plateau Trail and Murray Hill Road.
Peace River Wildland Provincial Park, located about two hours north of Grande Prairie, is a pristine protected parkland and important wildlife corridor for elk, deer and bears. In summer, paddle, power boat and fish on the river. Hike, mountain bike and horseback ride on marked trails, or venture into the backcountry. Skijoring, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, tobogganing and snowmobiling are popular activities in winter. Backcountry camping is allowed year round in the park.
This trail begins at the southwest corner of Beaver Creek Campground. It winds through poplar and spruce forest past a beaver pond. It ends near the bottom of Old Baldy Campground. The first 0.6 km of this trail (from Beaver Creek Campground to the wooden bridge) is wheelchair and stroller accessible.
Head out when the light is at its best, as the sun rises and everything turns golden. For once our short winter days work to our advantage: no need to get up at crazy hours to make the most of it!
