  • Private beach & canoe, take the steps from property by the creek, walk across the railway.
  • From the property turn left for the boat launch and beach area – walk there in about 10 -20 minutes. Also some secluded rocky beach areas that are isolated and beautiful.
    Beach at Canyon Creek which is only 5 km away to the West.
  • Devonshire Beach (rated in the top ten beaches in Canada) is a very long, sandy beach that is great for a leisurely one hour walk. It’s almost never crowded. There is an area on the beach where dogs are allowed.

Hiking, Biking and Snow Shoeing

  • From the property, take the back steps and walk for miles along the railway tracks, lake front
  • There are bike, hike, ski or snowshoe trails about 2 kms from the cottage across the highway.
  • Hike into Lily Lake (snowshoe probably best) 55.482895, -114.769093
    North of Slave Lake on hwy 88 (approx 25 kms) to the Marten Mountain Road…turn right and cross your fingers, hope gate is open and road is maintained…if it is not, it is a long 6 km hike up to tower..from near the tower there is a trailhead that hikes you down into Lily Lake, about 45 min 1 way.
  • North of Slave Lake on hwy 88 (approx 18 kms) there is the BCBC (Boreal Center for Bird Conservation). Open all year long (restricted hours/days in winter so check).
    They have hiking trails and some skis and snowshoes.
  • Hike into the Old grizzly ridge fire tower…this takes a day, and is very remote and no real route marked in so you must be adept at navigation and map reading and be backcountry prepared.
