Step 1: Access Points


Where do you want to start? There are 10 access points along the 200 km of Trail. Explore the communities they are in! Click on various links for each access point.


Access Points are identified by blue Trans Canada Trail/Sentier transcanadien signs on provincial roads and Trailhead signs in parking area.


This trail is best suited for walking and cycling. There are some nice sections for horses, mostly the southern half of the trail. Information on winter uses can be found in Step 4. There is a separate snowmobile trail. 

Follow blue signs with white arrows. A few new signs are white with blue arrows. Please know that cell phone service can be intermittent south of St. Malo. If you`re cycling, narrow bike tires are not recommended. Wear bright clothes especially during hunting season in the fall. Take plenty of water. Be aware of wildlife…. and prepare for mosquitoes and ticks, especially during a wet summer. Click here for provincial tick information.

If trail maintenance has not started – usually June – you could encounter tall grass and weeds and fallen trees and branches in some locations. Trail sections along the Red River have a dry route option. The entire trail is a fairly easy adventure as there are very few inclines. Surfaces are gravel, grass, pavement/sidewalks in or near communities and dirt roads. These may turn into mud after heavy rains, so be ready to take off your shoes and enjoy the feeling of mud between your toes, or take to the grass on the side of the road.
