    Route Description for Coral Creek Canyon Trail

    The Coral Creek Canyon Trail is a stunning way to explore the Abraham Lake area along the David Thompson Highway. The trail leaves from the Coral Creek staging area south of the Rockies Heli base. From the parking lot, follow the trail that leads up the right side of the Cline River. This area was significantly affected by the 2013 floods that swept through the Rockies, causing irreparable damage.

    Follow the Cline River from the upper flanks of the canyon walls, admiring the contrasting colours. Continue upstream to the confluence with Coral Creek. After 2.1 km, there’s a small junction with a trail leading to the left. Take this trail to create your loop and begin heading downstream towards the highway and Abraham Lake.

    Getting to the Coral Creek Canyon Trail Trailhead

    From the Saskatchewan River Crossing, travel eastbound on Highway 11 for 42.0 km to the Coral Creek staging area on the left. Pull into the short road and park at the end.
