The upland boreal forest north of Edson Alberta contains a network of trails and cutlines, with the main leg of the Edson - Silver Summit Trail closeby and easily accessible from the lodge. The Silver Summit trail eventually connects to the Golden Triangle Trail system to the north, however overall the Golden Triangle Trail is best used in winter for snowmobiling.

ATV riders will find no shortage of areas to explore right from the lodge. Bring your ATV and explore the trails.

Quiet and Peaceful

  • 4 of 5

Everything was great. Exactly what I was looking for. Very quiet area although I know it is popular with snowmobilers and the snow was not cooperating so that may be why it was quiet at this time of year.

Owner shows you the house and then leaves you alone to your privacy except to see them walking the dogs or going by to turn on the generator at night. The only thing I didn't like (ruins the quiet when looking at the stars) but it appears to be a necessary evil if you want to have the comforts of home. You can onnly hear it outdorrs though. Very quiet inside the house.

Great hiking trails and beautiful scenery. I would suggest trying to arrive in the daylight hours as it is a bit off the beaten track. One thing I would add is comfortable chairs on the deck to enjoy the quiet and maybe a few wooden benches (the owner appears quite adept at woodworking) strategically placed around the property to sit back and enjoy the numerous vistas.

The home is warm, comfortable and there was plenty of hot water for the showers or the jacuzzi.

Definitely would stay again. Great place.
