Pierre Grey’s Lakes Provincial Park is located in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains northwest of Hinton, just off Hwy. 40. The park contains a beautiful chain of five lakes, two of which are stocked with rainbow trout and one with brook trout. The park is named for Pierre Gris (Grey), a Métis who ran a successful trading post during the late 1800s. The remains of the trading post are still visible along the lakeshore.
Recreational activities in the park include front country hiking, fishing, canoeing, kayaking and power boating (electric motors only). The park also has some great cross-country ski trails.
