Alberta’s ever-changing climate makes hiking always different and exciting. Try it in winter!
Hiking is healthy in the winter, but if you really want to get in shape or challenge yourself, cross-country jog or run the Eagle Point Provincial Park trails in the winter.
The Park is home to over 35 km of easy to follow trails for hiking and cross-country jogging and running. Depending on snow conditions, many of the trails are often snow-free or have minimal snow cover. Some trails will be snow covered to make your hike or run very challenging.
Each trail promises to dazzle your senses with panoramic views of the North Saskatchewan River Valley or interesting and unusual habitats.
The Pembina Rotary Community South Trails are located just adjacent to the east side of Drayton Valley. The 7 km of trails are well travelled and border the North Saskatchewan River Valley. Stay above the embankment or hike down to the flats. Bring your mobile device with QR Code Scanner and turn your hike into an interpretative adventure.
The Pembina Rotary Community North Trails are located 7 km northeast of Drayton Valley. The 16 k of trails are well travelled and border the North Saskatchewan River Valley. Most of the trails stay above the embankment with a few beautiful exceptions.
The Hilltop and Hillside Trails are located on the east side of the North Saskatchewan River near Willey West Campground and lust off of Range Road 71, these 9.7 km of trails meander up and down the steep terrain of the North Saskatchewan River embankments. Hiking these trails promises to be a heart pumping experience. Bring your mobile device with your QR Code Scanner to turn the Hill Top Trail into an interpretative experience.
