Wonderful views on this trail which leads into B.C. Big beautiful mountains many able to scramble up. The beautiful Mount Ida and Mount Sir Alexander tower over you. At Kakwa Lake you can head to Jarvis Lakes or Cecilia Lake. This trail is best done in a dry year.This is one of my most favourite rides and one of the best things is no motorized vehicles. They are allowed on the other hand on the Trail To Kakwa falls. This is a very secluded back country ride, plan to do this trip over 4 days it can be done in two but there are just too many places to explore. There are also fossils to see as well as dinosaur footprints.


Same directions As the Kakwa Trail except at km 17.5 the trail to the lake is right, there are about 3 places to turn, take the most travelled one.


Please check the bottom of the Description (above left; click) for the author's written directions.

Sherman Meadows, then an additional 24 kilometres to
Dead Horse Meadows. This last section is very rough.
Alberta regulations prohibit vehicles over 365 kilograms
(800 pounds) past this point. From here, the Kakwa Lake
trail travels 32 kilometres to the north end and an
additional 11 kilometres to the south end of Kakwa Lake.
Motorized traffic (except snowmachines) is not permitted
within the boundaries of Kakwa Provincial Park.
Violators will be prosecuted.
