The Province of Alberta owns and operates seven ferries. They are listed on the internet but there is nothing really in the way of directions on how to get to any of them, just where they are located. I really had to scrutinize a roadmap to find out how to get to them. The government website provides a minimal amount of information which is unfortunate as I think with a bit of promotion they would get a lot more traffic. They are usually open from May to November.
Rosevear Ferry – Local road over the McLeod River near Highway 16
Bleriot Ferry – Highway 838 over the Red Deer River
Crowfoot Ferry – Local road over the Bow River - 5 km south of the junction of Highways 1 and 56, on Range Road 201
Finnegan Ferry – Highway 862 over the Red Deer River
Klondyke Ferry – Highway 661 over the Athabasca River
LaCrete Ferry – Highway 697 over the Peace River
Shaftesbury Ferry – Highway 740 over the Peace River
I took my bike north up Range Road 154, crossed over and took Highway 748 east to Highway 32 south back to Highway 16. I encountered so little traffic off of Highway 16 I was beginning to wonder if anyone lived in the area. Practically all of it is paved. It is not an interesting trip but it is not far off the main highway. The pictures were taken on May 19, 2014.
