Fire destroys an important link in the Iron Horse Trail
Built in 1931, the Beaver River trestle is one of 18 trestle bridges along the old CNR line. After the railway abandoned the rail line in 1999, 10 municipalities acquired it for a multi-use recreational trail. It forms a spur of the 300-kilometre-long Iron Horse Trail that runs from Smoky Lake County to Heinsburg as part of the Trans Canada Trail; the Cold Lake spur is part of the Trans Canadian Snowmobile Trail. The trail opened on 8 June 2003.
