Trailhead: Park on the east side of the #11 David Thompson Highway just past the causeway going over Allstones Creek. 194kms west of Rocky Mountain House. 4.5 hour drive from Edmonton, 3.5 hours from Calgary.
Description: Locate the trailheads wooden sigh post on the west side of the highway. Continue on as the trail steeply ascends towards Allstones Lake. Within an hour or so the trail opens up to nice views towards Abraham Lake and Mount Michener. Once you reach the top of the ridge the trail forks left towards the lake and right towards a lookout above. Take the trail to your left that drops slightly to Allstones Lake.
When you arrive at the lake you will be rewarded by its beautiful colour and the surrounding views. There are several backcountry campsites located next to the lakeshore. Sadly some users have chopped down several large trees in a futile attempt to build a fire. The days of burning fires at backcountry campsites are over. It cannot be sustained and will only lead to closures. Allstones Lake is stocked with Brook Trout.
The lake is approximately 1/2km long and 200m wide Perfect for belly boats if you’re strong enough to carry it. The grassy ridge above the north end of the lake provides excellent views of Allstones Lake and the surrounding area. You are in bear country
