EXPLORING CANADA’S NATIONAL PARKS (and places in between) – Save these suggestions and start counting kilometers on January 1, 2019.  I will post more ideas on a continuing basis.

Before we head for our first National Park (Prince Albert), some of you might like to check off a few kilometres locally.  Here are some suggestions.  Remember, you can plan your goal by choosing as many trails as you like.  Since this is a digital trip –  you can alternate between great winter hikes and warm summer ones.

Meewasin Valley Trail

80 Kilometres of riverbank paths wind through the city along the banks of the mighty South Saskatchewan river. They are beautiful all year, but become a winter wonderland once the snow flies.  Kick sled, bike, walk, or cross country ski.  A good place to count kilometres before we hit the road.

Chief Whitecap Waterway

Wait for summer – but this is a spectacular portion on The Great Trail with more than 100 kilometres of untouched river valleys between the Gardiner Dam and Saskatoon. The water flow from the Gardiner Dam makes the trip a breathtaking one-way journey from south to north

Wanuskewin Heritage Park
