Discover St. Albert’s Beautiful Ravines

Some residents can live in St. Albert for years and not know about some hidden gems in our community – including the beautiful ravines scattered throughout the City. With an extensive trail system that connects many of St. Albert’s neighbourhoods, experiencing the stunning trees, shrubs and outdoor smells in our ravines is easy.

If you plan to head out soon, you’ll be able to catch the vibrant red, orange and yellow hues as the leaves change colour. If you plan to visit in a couple weeks, that’s okay too as the trees sparkle and glow when they’re covered in a little white stuff.

Grab a coffee, a camera and head out to experience one of the following ravines. Please remember to observe physical distancing guidelines and share the trail.
