Alberta's Iron Horse Trail

Alberta’s Iron Horse Trail (AIHT) is part of the TransCanada Trail and offers 300 kilometers of trail ranging from boreal forest, to parkland, to cultivated farmland. 

Wildlife, scenery, historic buildings and farmsteads will give you a glimpse of the rich tapestry that is Northeastern Alberta.

This trail is, in part, a wilderness trail. Bear, moose, deer, coyotes, badgers and other wildlife are occasionally spotted. Be prepared. Consider yourself among the newest adventurers on this historic route. 

AIHT is a work in progress. Some heavy ballast and soft sand remain, making short segments of the trail a challenge. 

Voluntary trail passes are available at ‘trail friendly’ local businesses. 

Please purchase one and show your support for recreation corridors.
