Ah the Museum Trail! An absolute favorite, the trail is grassy so it's great in spring when it's wet, cool and shady in the summer, protected from winter winds, and so stunning in the fall. I'm my dog and I have trekked on this trail hundreds of times. There is a cross country snow shoe trail, a groomed cross country ski trail, and the added bonus of wandering around the museum grounds looking at all the old buildings. A beautiful setting and easy to access. If you take your dog (s), there are garbage bins and doggie bags for picking up poop, so PLEASE use them!! Keep our trails clean!

I have walked this trail many many times. It is one of my favourite places to go, especially with my dogs. It is so close to town, takes just minutes to get there, and yet it feels like you are 'out in nature".
One of the best things about Swan River!

Great day and great hike! loved it.

Great snowmobile trail into Armit Lake. Good portion of the trail is part of the groomed Snoman trail.

Very nice trail. The bridge was about half way - nice place to stop and enjoy the scenery. Good trail to get some exercise and enjoy the outdoors.

I love the Transcona Bioreserve. Can almost forget you're in the city hiking / biking these trails. Lots of wildlife to see and different areas to explore (bring your camera). The Bioreserve is fun to hike all year long with well maintained trails.

Nice trail close to the city for biking and hiking. Perfect way to get to Birds Hill Park (no traffic). My advice is bring lots of water and wear a hat / sunscreen during the summer months. Dress for the weather. Not much shade or shelter.

Best time of the day to do the East section of the trail is first thing in the morning. AWESOME sunrise views over the floodway.

Great trail for snowshoeing in the Ducks. Enjoy the short, yet steep trek to the top of Elk Hill.

Did this trail multiple times, once at night. If you want to do some stargazing this the place to go.

Great little trail, very beautiful in winter with fresh snowfall.

Decent hiking trail

Great winter trail!

In winter with new fresh snow this trail is gorgeous!

I did the full loop in winter time. No mud, fresh snow. Enjoyed a lot the entire trail. There were moose footprints along the trail.

Beautiful scenery. Hiked this trail many times and enjoyed evry time.

Nice clean trail, don’t like the return route on The Road so took the trail in reverse once getting to the road.

Easy trail for a 2-day hike, or loop can be completed in a day. Access to Jackfish Lake is not very good, and first cabin was full when we visited, so bring a tent if visiting on a weekend.

A nice mix of rooty terrain and rock shelves, access to the crisp river in multiple areas. Well marked.

Really cool hike. Bring lots of water.

I wouldn't rate it as easy due to numerous steep sand dunes and the length of it. I've done several easier hikes in the whiteshell that were rated moderate. Definitely worth seeing and an enjoyable day. Bring lots of water.
