Escape into a land of sparkling lakes, rushing rivers, green valleys, and windswept peaks. Nestled on a mountain plateau at 1280 m (4200 ft.), Grande Cache is 214 km (130 mi.) northwest of Jasper National Park in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. The Bighorn Highway 40 provides a paved corridor connecting Hinton, Alberta with Mile Zero of the Alaskan Highway at Dawson Creek, British Columbia. This is the shortest, most scenic route to Alaska from the United States.
Grande Cache is the Gateway to Willmore Wilderness Park, Alberta’s greatest mountain treasure. Willmore Wilderness Park has an abundance of trails, big game, alpine flowers, and spectacular waterways. To protect its natural splendour, no motorized vehicles are permitted; visitors can access the park by horseback or on foot.
