The Crow Wing Trail is one of the longest sections of the Trans Canada Trail in Manitoba. At 193 km long, it connects Emerson to Winnipeg though the municipalities of Emerson-Franklin, Roseau River First Nation, De Salaberry, St-Pierre-Jolys, Niverville and Ritchot.

Empruntez cette ancienne piste pour chars à bœufs. Il était autrefois le principal chemin entre le Fort Garry à Winnipeg et St. Paul, au Minnesota. Au cours du 19e siècle, ce chemin longeait la rive est de la rivière Rouge, suivant le tracé de ce qui est aujourd'hui devenu l'autoroute 59. Cette piste fait aujourd’hui partie du Sentier transcanadien, entre Winnipeg et Emerson.
