There are currently three great groomed trails in the Mighty Peace:
Wesley Creek Trail
Officially opened March 5, 2016 in conjunction with the Club’s first Poker Rally. This 30 km trail runs in a loop to the east and north of St. Isidore. The staging area can be accessed from Township Road 842 north of St. Isidore.
Leddy Lake Trail
Officially opened March 19, 2011. Located north of Peace River. Runs 40 km north from the Leddy Lake Recreation Area to the area of Driftwood Lake near Deadwood. The trail also includes a small loop near the Leddy Lake Recreation Area.
Smith Mills Trail
Officially opened March 11, 2017. The East End Staging Area is located to the north of Grimshaw and the West End Staging Area is located to the north of Hines Creek. Runs 60 kilometers from north of Figure Eight Lake to just east of Stony Lake. This trail includes a loop near the west end of the trail that has a magnificent view of the area.
Future Trails for the Mighty Peace:
Work on this trail was formally initiated in the spring of 2015 and is currently in the final approval process. Final approval is expected to be in place shortly, hence if funding can be identified this trail could be developed during the winter of 2017/18. This 50 km trail would link the Smith Mills Trail with the Village of Hines Creek and in doing so, would be the first trail in the area offering sledders direct access to fuel, food, lodging and repair services similar to trails in Eastern Canada. Stay tuned for the opening date.
As one of the original 3 trails identified by the Club and approved in principle in December of 2009 along with the Leddy Lake and Wesley Creek trails, further work has been delayed during the development of the Club’s other trails. This proposed trail would be an extension to the Wesley Creek Trail and will potentially run north along the power line which is adjacent to the DMI east haul road. Work could proceed once the Hines Creek Trail is complete if a Trail Sponsor to lead the project is identified.
Additional Trail Plans:
As part of the long range goal to complete a network of trails on both the east and west sides of the Peace River, there is also commitment to link our local network to those of other member Clubs of the Alberta Snowmobile Association as part of an overall network of trails within the Province of Alberta. From a conceptual perspective the Club has identified the potential of the following trails becoming part of the local trail network, Dixonville Connector & Talbot Lake Trail.
Place Title: Figure Eight LakePlace Description:
Figure Eight Lake Provincial Recreation Area is located 40 kilometers northwest of Peace River on Highway 737 in the County of Northern Lights. Figure Eight Lake takes its name from the shape it had before 1970 when the water level was low, in these earlier days the lake had two basins and resembled a figure eight.
The area offers a beautiful, rustic, family friendly, lakeshore campground which has many activities to offer. During your stay you can fish, boat, wind surf, canoe or just enjoy the beautiful lake view! Visitors can also enjoy a hike on forested hiking trails around the lake and you may see one of the multitude of birds and other wildlife that inhabit this area! An easy-access hand launch allows you to get your electric-powered boat on the water to find the best fishing spots, or you can fish from the seawall. Visitors may access the lakeshore by a handy paved foot path. OHV trails can be accessed nearby for hours of family fun! After a day of making memories, get ready to relax and enjoy your evening at one of 27 beautifully forested campsites which can accommodate RVs or tents.
