I Saskatoon, 17km of the Meewasin Trail is designated as Trans Canada Trail (TCT). The trail starts in the northwest of the city crossing the river at Sid Buckwold Bridge (temporary crossing) and continues through historic Saskatchewan Crescent into beautiful Gabriel Dumont Park in the southeast whe
Trail is heavily used by walkers, hikers, cyclists, runners, photographers and really most of the population of the city. Amazing views of the river and opportunities to see wildlife in the early morning and evenings when it is not so crowded. The upper trails are paved. the lower trails are dirt, much rougher and popular with trail riders and trail runners.
I love meewasin. I can easily access the river for canoeing, running and biking. It's a cool place for a picnic or to watch the sky.
This is a nice paved trail that offers the runner/jogger the opportunity to explore multiple side trails that mountain bikers have created weaving in-and-out among the trees. Additionally, the views of the city are nice. Sections of the trail follow a creek and do provide a feeling of being in a forest, but trash and other litter remind you that you're well within the city.
