Traveling by Land and Air

Highway Corridors

Three major corridors intersect the County. The Canamex Corridor stretches across roughly 1,150 km of Alberta’s provincial highway network. This network includes parts of Highways 4, 3, 2, 216, 16 and 43, and offers an advantageous linking point between the Alberta and Montana border crossing to the Alberta and BC border on Highway 43. Highway 43 forms the northernmost portion of the Canamex Corridor and is the start of the Alaska Highway.

The Cowboy Trail is a 700-kilometre route along Highway 22 featuring multiple points of interest and adventure.

Lastly, Alberta Provincial Highway 33 (also known as Grizzly Trail) was the original Klondike Trail. It was widely advertised as the shortest route to the Yukon during the Klondike Gold Rush.

Municipal Airport

Managed by Lac Ste. Anne County, the Peter Trynchy Municipal Airport is conveniently located just outside the Town of Mayerthorpe. Its paved runway includes radio-activated lighting, taxi way, tie downs for planes, and hangars. Positioned for private and charter flights. The airport's longest runway is 2800 feet long.
