The Meewasin Trail lives in and outside of the City of Saskatoon, on both sides of the river, and includes several sites and services to help you make the most of your adventures. 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. Our Trail Guide which includes a map, is sponsored by the Saskatoon Road Runners, and is available at our office.

Many parks and sites are located along the Meewasin Trail, a must-see attraction. The trail runs over +105km 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. View our Meewasin Trail Guide 2018 for site information and a detailed map of the trail on the Meewasin Trail Map!

In 1992, visionaries had a dream to connect Canada and its people with a multi-use trail. Today, The Great Trail stretches almost 24,000 km across Canada from coast to coast, linking over 1000 communities and over 33 million Canadians. It is the largest trail system in the world and runs along 20 km of the Meewasin Trail through Saskatoon.

The Great Trail enters Saskatoon from the north parallel with Wanuskewin Road, jogging over to start following the river’s western shore by the Silverwood Golf Course. From there it continues south through Meewasin Park, eventually reaching the Kinsmen Park area. It continues from there through the downtown core and River Landing. Here it crosses the river over to the east side at the Senator Sid Buckwold Bridge and enters Rotary Park. It heads south through Gabriel Dumont Park, where The Great Trail pavilion showcases more than 4000 names in support of this great legacy. It then crosses Diefenbaker Park and then out of city limits, finishing its Meewasin leg at Chief Whitecap Park.
