    Brule Lake Sand Dunes

    Riding Area: Brule Lake Sand Dunes




    Located on the South Shore of Brule Lake, a short 16km from Hinton, AB the area offers an abundance of natural sand dunes and public land nearby to explore. Brule Lake is one of the only dune areas in Alberta where OHV use is permitted. Flags on all off-highway vehicles is highly recommended as visibility on the dunes can be very limited in some areas. The access road to the dunes is unmaintained and is recommended for 4x4 vehicles only.
