This staging area provides access to several informal and unmaintained designated ATV trails where you can expect downed trees and other hazards. There are no known trail maps available for this region. Be prepared with a saw and shovel, and do not drive around obstacles off the trail. While there are two campgrounds near the staging area, it is prohibited to offload ATV’s within the campgrounds or ride ATV’s within the campground.

To reach the OHV Staging area within the Red Deer River Provinical Recreation Area from Sundre, head southwest on Highway 584 for 60km. Turn south on Highway 40 into the Red Deer River Provinical Recreation Area. While riding ATV’s within the recreation area, make sure that all ATV’s are registered in Alberta, all drivers are 14 and over, the headlight is on and the tail lamp functions. On these remote, unmaintained trails, a GPS is highly recommended.

Note: Mountain Aire Lodge operates 5 remote campsites in the surrounding Provincial recreation areas, including the Cartier Creek, Deer Creek Flats, Red Deer River South, Red Deer River North, and Wild Horse Creek
