The Town of Devon is the furthest point west in the River Valley Alliance Trail and Park system. The residents of Devon take pride in their community and the North Saskatchewan River plays a vital role in their everyday lives. Devon is home to some of the only accessible beachfront in the entire river valley system. The region plays host to upwards of 750,000 tourists annually and is home to one of the best campgrounds in the region, which is located in the scenic river valley. The Devon Golf and Country Club is also located in the River Valley and offers a great course with spectacular views. This is a long and sometimes difficult walk along the river trails and on the way you will pass the Lions Campground and loop completely around the Devon Golf Course. While difficult in places, this walk allows you to see great sights and get a good feel for the Town of Devon. Starting from the Voyager Park secondary parking lot, you enter the river side trail system and work your way along, enjoying some great river front views. You move up into the trees and the trail gets a little more technical as you encounter tree roots and the occasional mud slide. It was very wet on the day of this hike, so some of the elevation changes were challenging, but on dry days it is probably fairly easy to climb. Avoiding a riverbank slump, you climb up a series of switchbacks lined with fences to gain some elevation and bypass the area. Once you reach the top, you carry on down the trail and you will eventually reach some of the Town's Public Works Buildings and the beginning of the Devon Golf Course. Once you pass the public works buildings, you are on the Golf Course lower trail and this is a pleasant walk in the trees right beside the river. Very pleasant. You come out the other side of the Golf Course and enter a very nice tenting area right along the river. This is the Town of Devon Lion's Campground and is a fantastic place to camp, so don't miss it. Once you pass the campsite gate, you climb up the main road until you re-enter the trail system and this will take you above the golf course. You skirt beside a few older neighbourhoods with wonderful old trees before you head back down into the lower trail system.There is a separate trail that runs close to the riverside trail and is in good shape. As you walk back to the trailhead, you have earned yourself a cold drink in the friendly Town of Devon.Show more

The Town of Devon is the furthest point west in the River Valley Alliance Trail and Park system. The residents of Devon take pride in their community and the North Saskatchewan River plays a vital role in their everyday lives. Devon is home to some of the only accessible beachfront in the entire river valley system. It is just 15 minutes from Edmonton, and is a member of the Devonian Way Group, which is a group of tourism attractions and services that operate within 10 minutes of Devon. The region plays host to upwards of 750,000 tourists annually and is home to one of the best campgrounds in the region, which is located in the scenic river valley. This is a good nature hike starting from Devon. Parking on Oakland Blvd, you set out and find the trailhead nearby. You begin to descend soon after entering the trail system and you will continue descending the entire length of the ravine until you reach the river valley. It is a pleasant walk on the way down as you are surrounded by trees and the sounds and sights of the creek on your right. There is wildlife in the area, including deer and coyotes, so keep your eyes open. You will also encounter other hikers, joggers and bikers on this trail, so keep your ears open as well. When you reach the bottom, you can enter the Lions RV Park and visit the riverside or get a drink at the office. The trail back up is a workout on a hot day, but enjoyable. You pass a dried out creek bed and many different bike path features on the trails. You can stay on the trail and head straight out, or you can detour up to the abandoned Imperial Plant and walk the fence line.Show more

Length: 5.8 mi • Est. 2 h 21 m
A loop through conservation lands on wide grassy double track trail. There are multiple trails zig-zagging through the areas, so one can adjust distances easily. In addition to the Bunchberry Conservation area, additional trails have been added by the county in a separate area (Tucker's Field). While the county lands are bicycle & dog friendly, the conservation lands are not; be respectful of this. Some pluses: wildlife & bird watching, solitude, easy trails with little climbing.Show more

This is a new section of the River Valley Alliance trail that will connect Devon to Fort Saskatchewan. It is the Upper Devon Battery Creek Trail. Starting at the Devon Lion's Campground, proceed through the campground to the east end of where the gravel trail begins. Cross the creek and start the long climb. Once to the top, follow the trail and enjoy the views through the trees of the river. This route currently ends at a construction site, where they continue to develop the trail through the creek valley towards Edmonton. Turn around and enjoy the walk back. Side trails are available from the campground into the battery creek valley if you have more energy.Show more

You will also encounter signage about the partnership between Devon and the River Valley Alliance, who have helped contribute to the development of this park. Passing through the open area, you enter a treed trail then find yourself in another large open area with plenty of picnic tables and a supply of wood near by. Carrying on, you will come out by the main picnic area which has a play area for kids and public restrooms. Many locals spend their lunch hours down in this area.

#8 - Devon Nordic X-Country Ski Trail
Devon, Alberta
easyYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarGray StarGray Star(37)
Length: 2.8 mi
Cross Country skiers will enjoy this lovely river valley area for well-kept ski trails and the quiet atmosphere. The ski trails groomed on the golf course are for skiers only. Signs posted throughout Devon state that “Environmental Responsibility is Everyone’s Business. Use Maintained Trails Only". One of these large signs is place to the right of the parking area and trailhead. This applies to the golf course area as well as where ski trails are approved. There are many trails along the river and throughout Devon that are multi-use but the Devon Nordic ski trails set on the golf course are for cross-country skiing only. Some skate skiing can occur where wider groomed areas run beside classic tracks.Show more
