The Iron Horse Trail, is a multi-use, recreational trail that runs the length of what was the Canadian National Railway line. This is the longest continuous stretch of the Trans Canada Trail in Alberta. The trail begins in Waskatenau, going all the way to the Saskatchewan border, with a north east branch to Cold Lake and a south east branch that ends in Lindbergh. It's popular year-round with horse riders, hikers, cyclists, skiers, snowmobilers, and ATV users. Located next to the trail, the staging area in the town of St. Paul now boasts a 14-stall shelter for wagon and horse riders looking to make a stop in town. This is in addition to the fully serviced camping sites and the pond, where visitors can fish during summer long weekends and skate in the winter. The area has plenty of room for trailers to unload ATVs and snowmobiles. It's a perfect place to start and end a day on the trail. Other trailheads in the county are located at Mallaig, Elk Point, Lindbergh and Heinsburg. Multiple staging areas, rest stops and some accommodations are distributed the length of the trail making it perfect for planning a multi-day excursion.
