Alberta Provincial Highway No. 666[1] is a highway in the province of Alberta, Canada. It runs mostly west-east, on mostly existing township and range roads in the Municipal District of Greenview No. 16 in Northern Alberta, for 37 km. The name highway 666 is often avoided, due to its association with the Number of the Beast. However, Alberta numbers its west-east minor highways from south to north, and decided not to skip 666, despite skipping numerous other numbers.

Route description

Hwy 40 bridge over Wapiti River and Hwy 666 east terminus

It starts on Range Road 85 at a creek crossing, south from there Weyerhaeuser Canada Corporation maintains a network of forestry roads, extending approximately 100 km (62 mi) south to the Two Lakes Provincial Park and Nose Mountain camping areas, and further to the 30 m (98 ft) high Kakwa Falls on the Kakwa River. Highway 666 travels north east on Township Road 692, Range Road 82, and Township Road 700, to the hamlet of Grovedale. It then follows the south bank of Wapiti River, with O'Brien Provincial Park in between, before meeting up with Highway 40. The Highway 40 bridge over Wapiti River south of Grande Prairie also crosses Highway 666, and with separate northbound and southbound exits to Hwy 666, it makes a Trumpet/Directional-T hybrid.[citation needed]

It is used by Forestry and the Oil and Gas industry working in the area of the Wapiti River valley, as well as for recreational use (two summer campgrounds are open in this wilderness area). It is paved for its entire length.[citation needed]
