    Trails & Mud in Brazeau Reservoir Area?

    Morning All,

    Couple of buddies and myself hoping to get muddy this weekend. From Edmonton area, was thinking about heading out to the Brazeau Dam area.

    Does anyone have any recommendations for a good trail, area to stage, or any other sound advice? Or know of any good rides in that Drayton/Brazeau area?

    Thanks!
