Alberta Environment and Parks (AEP) strongly values the assistance of volunteers and user groups that promote
responsible recreation and who develop, maintain and rehabilitate recreation trails and sites on public lands.
Trails development requirements
The development (example: mountain bike technical trail features), maintenance or rehabilitation of recreation resources
on public lands requires the prior written approval of the AEP.
Failure to contact AEP before commencing the work is in contravention of the Public Lands Act and could lead to enforcement
actions. To review the Act, visit the Alberta Queen’s Printer website at:
If you wish to develop, take over the maintenance, or reclaim any recreation infrastructure or impacted areas on public
lands, please contact AEP for details. See:
