Meewasin Valley - Hiking Trail Information
Meewasin Valley Trail Map
The Meewasin Trail runs nearly 60 kilometres through the province, tracing the South Saskatchewan River. Hikers get both the urban and rural experience, with many points of interest along the way (museums, interpretive sites, parks, natural habitats, and more). Cree for "beautiful," the Meewasin Trail is used by pedestrians, joggers, cyclists, strollers, dog-walkers and rollerbladers, so be sure to practice good trail-sharing etiquette.
Part of the Trans Canada Trail, Meewasin Valley is an ode to the natural diversity surrounding Saskatoon. Watch for birds at the Cosmopolitan Park lookout, check out the Crocus Prairie bog or wander a bit further afield to search for butterflies at the Saskatoon Natural Grasslands.
