In the northernmost reaches of Alberta’s Rocky Mountains, the community of Grande Cache rests on a subalpine plateau. Flanked by three valleys, the Smoky and Sulphur rivers merge at Sulphur Gates, north of town, with Victor Lake and Grande Cache Lake to the south. With the mountains rising up around you and water coursing through craggy canyons, it seems as if nature itself beckons you to come outside and explore.

An excellent hub for outdoor adventure, you might head off on foot, mountain bike, horseback, ATV or snowmobile to play among the peaks. Spy waterfalls or step through the dramatically named Crack of Doom as you start your adventure. The waterways are a draw for anglers, canoers, kayakers, rafters, and other boaters.

You may glimpse wildlife like deer, elk, bears, mountain goats, and birds of prey, and can find evidence of residents roaming the area over 65 million years ago – dinosaur tracks! The area near Grande Cache features thousands of footprints left behind by the “Terrible lizards,” and is now a protected historical site.

Residents of Grande Cache have access to the essential amenities and services for modern living. There’s a recreation centre, country club, and a full calendar of community events for all ages, stages, and interests.
