This is a great area to ride a quad or ride the side by side, its located 306 km from Edmonton. For well over 30 years is known as Bembo's Post Camp. The burner and the saw dust pile are still there as evidence that a family named Bembo's had a post plant there for many years. Quite a neat place. And I would say an awsome quadding adventure.

Riding Level: For all levels of riding, There is area's for beginners to advanced riders. Would'nt recommend riding a small quad on the trails though.
Terrain: All different types from level ground to extreme hills that are challanging, lots of water crossings.
Riding Surfaces: Sand, Mud, Muskeg, gravel, rocks, creeks, grass
Hazards: Hills, Creeks can be deep, some trails may have been washed out on spring thaw or from heavy rains.

- To get here head to Hinton, A few Km west there is a Highway 40 South turn head there, head South for 19.5 Km. You should see a brown sign with a cross country skier on the right just beyond that turn right on the gravel road. If you went left instead of right you would end up at the Gregg River Cabins. That road branches to the the left parrallel with the highway follow that you will cross the river on a small bridge, just beyond that is a large area, pick a spot. Set up the camper and have fun.
- If you crossed the Gregg River bridge you gone too far there is a rest area just past the bridge, turn around and you should see the road.

For what GPS are these files for? I visit this spot multiple times a year, but find myself limited to the quarry due to limited knowledge of the trail system.
