Hiking

We have trails starting right at the 'Escape' cabins or starting at nearby Rock Lake. Avalanche Chute and Hoff Range, are two of the more challenging hikes.

We are set in stunning Alpine forests.  You can find wildflowers and wildbirds.  Our wildlife is just that - WILD.  Although we will see abundant evidence of wildlife presence (scat, tracks, markings), it is not too common to run into any animals face-to-face whilst hiking.

Rock Lake Viewpoint around dusk is the best chance of viewing wildlife without disturbing them.

Secluded

Here, you feel a sense of calming seclusion. Nestled in the valley surrounded by the front ranges of the Alberta Rockies.  

At the top of our drivelane you enter the clearing where the sawmill once stood.  Views here of the Berland Ridge to the left, Hoff Ridge to the Right, Zebra, Basil Gates and Mt. Hunter in front of you and The Moose Horn behind you.

Awesome, Amazing Views !!

Cross Country Skiing
Snowshoeing

Located 20 mins North of Hinton the Nordic Centre has 35 km of expertly groomed trails.  Also Sledding and Snowshoeing on trails that are not track set for cross country skiing.

Rock Lake also has trails in a spectacular setting with stunning views of the front ranges of the Rocky Mountains where lodgepole pine and Spruce are mixed in with Aspen stands.  

As you drive through William A. Switzer park you pass 13km of groomed cross country skiing on the Jarvis Lake Trail.

Ice Fishing and Skating are permitted in Switzer Park and Warm up shelters are nearby.

Wildlife

Surrounded by lodgepole pine  and spruce mixed with aspen stands we are home to an abundance of wildlife.  A diverse range of habitats supports equally diverse wildlife populations.  The Park is home to Moose, Grizzly and Black Bears, Cougar, Wolf and a variety of birds.  Also critical winter range for Elk, Deer and Bighorn Sheep.
