This historic backcountry trail spans 300 km through Northeast Alberta, separated into three main areas that converge at Abilene Junction (Mile Zero). A cart journeyed down this trail in the mid-1800s and was also used by the CN train during the 1900s. Visitors can admire the beautiful natural landscapes of Alberta’s plains, prairies, boreal forests, grasslands, and sand dunes.
There are various communities and rest stops along the trail, with various attractions to experience. People can take the trail via horse riding, ATVs, snowmobiles in the winter, wagons, bicycles, or hiking on the trail in the summer! Bring your family for a fun adventure across Alberta’s towns and villages, including the town of St. Paul!
