During Open Farm Days

Explore Cathedral Trail

We are blessed to live in a pristine part of the world. During Alberta’s Open Farm days we share the magic of our land and our way of life with our visitors via guided tours through Spirit Hills Cathedral Trail. Due to a private wedding event Cathedral Trail will remain closed during the 2022 Alberta Open Farm days and re-open again in 2023.

A One of a Kind History

The Spirit Hills

The Spirit Hills are located along a trail that used to connect the Stoney and the Blood First Nations. The Kary family were among the first settlers in our region in the late 1,800’s. They built the dam that created rat lake, a muskrat fur farm, at the foot of the Spirit Hills. For decades every fall and spring First Nations travelers stopped at their farm. They shared meals and had a good relationship. But when nightfall came they always rode off into the Spirit Hills.

A One of a Kind Hike

Cathedral Trail

Cathedral trail is a journey of gratitude for the gifts of life. It will take you to places to contemplate the feats of civilization, the depths of your own strength, the dreams of your heart, the joys and struggles of life, and the essence of what it means to be you. If you are lucky you might catch a glimpse of deer, elk, moose or even a faery or an unveiled piece of your heart.

A One of a Kind Forest

The Old Growth Forest

Cathedral trail will take you through pastures and the enchanted old growth enchanted forest. You will come along lake views, the vineyard and mountain views. Along the way you will meet several of our +100 year old trees. They all have names and will make you contemplate different aspects of life. Among them Old man (picture left) , who is +120 years old will share his wisdom and Sleepy Hollow (picture below), will challenge you to use rational thought.
