Map of River and Rail - Rycroft, AB


Just 6.5 kilometres east of Rycroft, Alberta and 2.5 kilometres south of Highway 49, you may just find the focal point for all your family future outdoor adventures.  ‘River and Rail’ is an 86 acre parcel nestled along the Burnt River to the west and an abandoned CN rail line on the east.  Part of the property is legally accessible by Range Road 45, but here’s where it gets really intriguing.  The majority of the property is your very own secluded island across the Burnt River with no access by County road.  The southeast corner of the property is a stone’s throw from Township Road 780 across the rail line, although there is currently no crossing agreement in place with CN rail. 

Hop on your all-terrain vehicle or put on your backpack and head across the Burnt River to tranquility, where you will find abundant wildlife amongst the old-growth spruce and aspen.  The trees even benefit from the parcel not having road access, as harvesting becomes impossible.  You may be shocked to discover you don't need Richard Branson's money to own your own island.  Investigate permitting to determine the feasibility of building your own portable bridge to the more significant portion of the parcel if you wish to access your spectacular cabin amongst the evergreens by vehicle.  This space would be a legacy for your family through the years; that ultimate off the grid secluded recreational resort.   There is no need for gates to keep out intruders as ‘River and Rail’ has the Burnt River as its own private moat. 

If you are looking for a wilderness getaway that is close to home, then look no further than this exquisite property that checks all the boxes with a relaxing stream, abundant wildlife, towering trees and most of all, seclusion.  ‘River and Rail’ is genuinely the ultimate R & R.
