In and outside of the City of Saskatoon, on both sides of the river, there are sites and services to help you make the most of your day. Explore the natural habitat along the riverbank, discover culture at museums and interpretive sites, and take advantage of enhancements such as parks and canoe launches. Click here for our full Trail Brochure.

Many parks and sites are located along the Meewasin Valley Trail, a must-see attraction. The trail runs along both sides of the river, winding under the bridges, and through beautifully landscaped parks and natural areas. Residents and visitors flock to the trail to cycle, jog, stroll or simply gaze at the scenery.

Exploring the trail is easy! Access points are found throughout the city, with maps and interpretive signage along the route.

Trans Canada Trail

In Saskatoon, 17km of the Meewasin Trail is designated as Trans Canada Trail (TCT). The trail starts in the northwest of the city crossing the river at Sid Buckwold Bridge (temporary crossing) and continues through historic Saskatchewan Crescent into beautiful Gabriel Dumont Park in the southeast where a TCT pavilion showcases more than 4000 names in support of this great legacy. 

The TCT is the world's largest network of trails. When completed, the TCT will be 22,000 km, linking 1000 communities and over 33 million Canadians. Saskatchewan's goal is to mark and map 1400km of trail within this network.

The dream of the Parkland Trail Association and Trans Canada Trail is to build a network from Outlook to Battleford (225 km) including a 47 km destination trail from Wanuskewin to Whitecap Dakota First Nations. This route offers many scenic views of the river, active birdlife, and places of interest to delight the traveler as they experience the essence of the beautiful prairies.
