Snowshoeing – Otter Loop

Along the athabasca river

This trail has a made up name just because we saw a couple of Otters along the banks of Athabasca river. Caution, please know what can happen if the spot you are standing gives way to the frigid glacial waters. We walked mostly on the solid ground along the sides unlike the posed photo above where Alpine Art walked over the Miette River.

Snowshoeing is the best way to get around odd places and find some beautiful vistas. You can find spectacular vistas on uncharted territory. Access to this area is just south of Tekarra Lodge just past the Miette Bridge on hwy 93a, there is a little pull-out and trail marker. Favorite amongst the dog walkers for the rock wall.
