Fort a la Corne Forest Review

 Located 50km North of Melfort, North East of Gronlid. There are many entrances into the forest, the one on the map is the one we used.

(Note that maps show directions to where the trails start and are not the actual trails)

Terrain: Mostly sand and dirt trails

Tons & tons of trails all in a beautiful wooded area. Lots of wildlife, views of the river and small streams.

Some of the neat places of interest on these trails include

-The Sandberg Creek Rest Stop (located beside the river, gorgeous!)

-Dale Skiftun Memorial

-Large areas of burned out forest

 -River views

 Map of trails found at the shack at the Sandberg Creek Rest Stop

Update January 28, 2014 - I have created a GPS map to the Sandberg Creek Rest Stop from one of the forest entrances and uploaded it to EveryTrail, you can see it here.


  1. The cross that you show is not a native burial site it is a memorial to my husbands Father . Dale Skiftun grew up there ,he hunted , fished ,he lived . his son placed it there because it is a bueatiful place that his dad loved to go to please respect the cross ,it means the world to my husband.. thank you

    1. Hi Tammy, thanks for that information. I am guessing the locals thought it was more glamorous to tell the tourists about a native burial ground. No disrespect intended towards your father in law, we will do what we can to ensure the site is well looked after.
