Grande Cache is 214 km (130 mi.) northwest of Jasper National Park in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Nestled on a mountain plateau at 1280 m (4200 ft.), the Grande Cache area is a land of sparkling lakes, rushing rivers, green valleys, and windswept peaks. The Bighorn Highway 40 connects Hinton, Alberta with Mile Zero of the Alaskan Highway at Dawson Creek, British Columbia.
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.
Outside the park, Grande Cache offers outdoor adventures with endless trails for motorized activities that include 4WD, all-terrain vehicles and snowmachines. Fishing, golfing, kayaking, canoeing, rafting, wildlife viewing and photographic opportunities await all visitors. Grande Cache has an excellent choice of shops, campgrounds, accommodations, restaurants, and evening entertainment. Those who want a true wilderness experience can stay in a backcountry lodge. Rates are reasonable, with small town hospitality.
