Outdoor Fun

Snowmobiling

There are two main trails in the Edson area – one that goes north to Silver Summit Ski Hill and another that heads down south to Robb. With the hilly slopes and dense forest in Yellowhead County, snowmobiling is truly at its best.

Want a chance to ride in the Rockies? The riding areas in Cadomin have been winning Snoriders Magazine Rider's Choice Awards including:

  • GOLD for Favourite Scenic Snowmobiling Area in Alberta
  • GOLD for Favourite Mountain Riding Area in Alberta
  • SILVER for Most Challenging Riding Area in Alberta

Quadding

Yellowhead County boasts some of the best off-road trails in the province.  Whether it be summer or winter, the beauty of the trail is always there and ready for use.  Since its formation, the Edson ATV Club has  proven to be very active in trail maintenance, rally's and promotion of off-road quadding. More information regarding the club can be received by contacting them directly.

Golfing

Whether you've never golfed before, or are a pro golfer, Pembina Valley Golf Course is one course you can't refuse to miss. Opened in the early sixties, this nine hole golf course boasts new greens, a fully licensed club house, power carts and is in the process of installing new tee boxes.
And don't be shy about stopping in at the Edson Golf Course if you're in town. With a full 18-hole course and newly developed driving range, it's enough to keep you swinging the whole day!

Canoeing/Kayaking

Challenging the rapids or paddling quietly across a lake - you can do both in Yellowhead County. A can't-miss river is the McLeod. One can hop on anyplace-a good place is Wilmore Park, where there's a little launch. One can go down river from here to the new bridge by Highway 16. Be sure to have arrangements to be picked-up after your trip.

Rock Climbing

The area surrounding Yellowhead County has numerous sites that are awesome for climbing. A good one to try is just west of Brule – Ogre Canyon. This is a good intermediate hiking trail.
