James-Wilson ATV Staging Area

The 22nd most popular all terrain vehicle trail in Alberta.

Northwest of Calgary and west of Sundre, the James-Wilson Provincial Recreation Area has a designated OHV staging area. It is named after the nearby confluence of the James River with Wilson Creek. The legal ATV riding is actually outside the small day-use and camping-only James-Wilson Provincial Recreation Area. The riding is on an informal trail system that is usually very muddy and challenging to ride. They cross muskeg and steep hilly terrain covered with dense pine forest.

To reach the ATV riding staging area at James-Wilson Provincial Recreation Area from Sundre, head west on Highway 584. It eventually winds around to meet Highway 40 and Forestry Trunk Road 940. After 40km from Sundre, the camping area is located on the righthand side of the road just across the James River.

Overall, James-Wilson ATV Staging Area is the 22nd most popular ATV riding trail of all 35 ATV trails in Alberta.
