Snowshoeing

Once the snow flies, you can snowshoe on any of the park's trails or unplowed roads.

Top Spots

  • Grosbeak Lake Loop of Benchmark Creek Trail
    (2.4 km return)
  • Kettle Point Road to scenic Pine Lake
    (approximately 5.3 km return)
  • Parsons Lake Road toward the Salt Plains
    (varying distances)

 

Warm up in Dëldël Kuę́ Day-Use Shelter

After your snowshoe, warm up in Dëldël Kuę́ at the Salt River Day Use Area! The shelter has a wood stove, tables and firewood. Bring an axe, matches, some fire starter, and your snacks.

Some things to keep in mind:

  • Heated washrooms and running water are available at the visitor centres in Fort Smith and Fort Chipewyan. During the winter, other park facilities are closed.
  • Be prepared to break trail. Trails and unplowed roads are not groomed or track-set in the winter.
