Mayerthorpe is a community of more than 1300 residents, located northwest of Edmonton at the junction of Highways 22 and 43., surrounded by picturesque rolling hills, steeped in rich agricultural history, and bustling with friendly businesses and engaging recreational activities – this town truly is ‘Everybody’s Community’. Mayerthorpe is proud of its community. But don’t just take our word for it – stop by and see for yourself. While in town check out the Fallen Four Memorial Park, the Cowboy Trail Storyboard located along Highway 22 or our outdoor swimming pool and waterslide.
Mayerthorpe is proud of our ranching heritage which continues to thrive along the Cowboy Trail. The “Cowboy Trail – Trail’s End” boasts many pioneer ranches, livestock producers, and cattle breeders which are still in operation today. These include Patrick’s Ranching Ltd., Lazy S. Ranch, Rustic Ridge Ranch, Hagman Cattle Company, Geinger Farms, Nelson Farms Ltd., and Madsen Farms. The ranching industry is integral to the economy of Mayerthorpe and to the preservation of the rustic ranching lifestyle that is so much a part of Alberta’s ranching heritage!
