Alberta's Iron Horse Trail follows the abandoned CN railing for 300 km. It passes through a wide variety of ecological settings that have remained relatively untouched since the early 1990's.
You will notice that the plants and wildlife change as you travel through parkland, agricultural land, boreal forest and natural wetlands.
Wildlife sightings are frequent and the trail offers up endless bird watching opportunities.
Trail users are advised to be prepared while on the trail, to stay on the trail and respect the environment and other users
