Good easy trail, lots of dogs
Icy in November take good shoes

Beautiful trails

Wish the north side of the loop wasn’t right along the road. The south side is in the trees and so peaceful and pretty.

Awesome trail in the city with great access to view the river, views of downtown and hoodoo formations.

Excellent trail, very easy.

Good for off leash hiking with your dogs and quite long.

The side along Emily Murphy Park is nice. The north side is just a walking path, it’s nice but loud. Groat road bridge is also under going construction right now, still walkable though.

On Sunday. May 8, 2018 while walking the previously marked pedestrian only dirt trail between Whitemud Park and Belgravia off-leash dog park, I was theatened with the words "if I have to go back to the beginning of this trail to view a sign that supposedly says no horses, no bikes, peds only; that will be the time that they will be dragging your body out of the river". Yes folks, I was threatened with death by the leader of an ~10 large pack of cyclists, most of which heard the threat but would not acknowledge hearing it. Now I understand that parts of that dirt trail are supposed to be off limits to all due to soil erosion and instability but I know for a fact that 10 days previous to today, there were two signs at the NE start of that trail that showed no horses, no bikes, pedestrians only. However, those signs no longer exist as it appears someone took some boltcutters to the no bikes, peds only sign and now the "killer" cyclists have laid claim to that entire dirt trail as they consider it unmarked and unmonitored. C'mon Christians of this city, back me up on this and have the city replace the removed sign and affix a sign stating properly, whom or what is or are allowed to use said dirt trail or at least admit that the city does not give a rat's ass to the safety of those of us elderly walkers who also have rights without having to fear "our bodies floating" in the North Saskatchewan River courtesy of rogue cyclists. Sorry about my language but this just happened to myself, my wife and our dog an hour ago!!

Nice walk not busy.

Quiet easy loop that touches on the historic Fort area- the people of Fort Saskatchewan are lovely - then visited the dog park - fully enclosed and some water so all in all good day trip to the Fort!

Great trail, can be confusing with other intersections but this app helped. Had a great day out starting our conditioning for future hikes. Good for families, dogs, kids, bikes, etc

Awesome trail! Definitely will enjoy it more often

my partner and i went out and try this trail with some friends new to hiking and they love it, its an easy trail, not bad during winter time, and easy trail to follow, but i want something pure nature, with this trail you’ll see the main road but still good for beginners

This hike was awesome. So beautiful with different paths to take. The only thing that was not enjoyable was the sewer smell in 2 areas. Will walk this again.

great run with gorgeous scenery, I extended an extra 2km by not turning at back into the park at the bridge.

I continued straight on the path south and ran to the stairs going up to groat road and then down the hill back into the park.

Good trail for the whole family(dog too). No matter which way you go there is going to be a climb uphill.

Nice easy loop. Be ready for a bit of an uphill climb at the end though.

Beautiful views of the river valley, nice climb down and back up .

One of my favourite trails. Good view of the city, but still feels like you're in nature. Great for walking dogs, lots of places for them to put their feet in the river

This was a fantastic trail! Well maintained, lots of friendly people and wildlife too! Will be going back again soon!!

From site 2 there is a great loop along the river that is zoned for off leash dog walking. This loop crosses an open area dog park as week. If you want to feel out of the city stay along the river.

Gorgeous spot along the river, long off leash trail for dogs. I missed the art, I imagine it was the opposite direction I went. I will definitely go back.

really good for dog owners ! I wish there was more indication where the trails are because theres lots that are like hidding treasures

Good trail. Needs more signage. Lots of unmarked side trails so it's easy to get lost.
