This is a forested trail that leads to an alpine meadow and the lake below Mount Chester.

Visitors are asked to purchase a day or season parking pass from Nordiq Alberta to use the trails. Revenue from the sales will cover the costs of trail grooming and maintenance. It’s $10 for a day pass or $50 for the season.

An annual seasonal closure will be in place on the Chester Lake Trail from May 1st to June 29th to allow the area to dry and prevent damage to the trail and surrounding area. Sawmill trails can be accessed by parking at the Sawmill trailhead six kilometres south of Chester Parking Lot. If you have questions related to this closure please call the Barrier Lake Visitor Information Centre at 403-678-0760.
