Cardinal Divide is a 6.7 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Yellowhead County, Alberta, Canada that features a great forest setting and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is best used from July until October.
It's a "divide" because on one side of it, water flows north and eventually empties into the Arctic Ocean; on the other side the water flows east and eventually empties into Hudson's Bay. This is a really unique ridge to walk along. It is so impressive to see it curve out into the horizon and on the edge see the gradual, saw tooth disintegration of the ledge.
