A short, easy trail located in Elk Island National park. Moose, Elk and Plains Bison can be frequently seen as well as the Beaver Lodge the trail is named for. In the winter the trail is not groomed so it would be best to give it a few days after a snowfall to let the skiiers pack it down a bit if you don't want to slog through the snow.
Trail Head is approximately 16 km north of the park entrance off of the Yellowhead highway 44km East of Edmonton

UpsideA nice short hike, especially if you're camping at Elk Island. I've done this trial twice. It's nice and simple, with some lake views. The beaver lodge isn't particularly big or amazing, but its a well-groomed trail. DownsideNot extremely exciting. Not very well marked, as the fork in the loop looks like it might be another trail and you don't find out till you finish the loop that you were indeed on the right trail. CommentWent camping with friends at Elk Island, and wandered off to hike this trail on a really hot day. It offered us some shade and a good leisurely hike.
