The Majesty of Marten Mountain

With an elevation of 1,020 metres (3,346 ft.) above sea level, Marten Mountain is easily visible from many parts of the MD. Drive to its lookout for an awe-inspiring view of the lake below.

A 61-metre (200 ft.) forestry observation tower at the peak of Marten Mountain is used for spotting fires in the Slave Lake Forest Area. Take the scenic drive up to the adjacent lookout for one of the most stunning vistas in the region. From here, adventurous souls can embark on the trailhead to the pristine Lily Lake nestled in Lesser Slave Lake Provincial Park.

To the left of Marten Mountain you can spot Nine Mile Point from here. Then look to its right and see if you can find Dog Island or Devonshire Beach.
