Little Mountain Park is located on the outskirts of the city, north of the James Richardson International Airport. It is perched on a limestone ridge which has extensive rock fossilization thus the use of a trilobite fossil as the icon for the sign. Set aside as a park in 1965, Little Mountain is significant both as a natural area and for its historical background. It contains a large section of aspen forest and has dozens of hiking and cross country skii trails crisscrossing the main trail. During the summer, the open meadows are covered with colorful wildflowers and owls, foxes, ground squirrels, and an occasional deer are but a sample of the wildlife which can be seen. If you like to mix nature study and history with pure fun, there are large playing fields for any sports activity.

Nice to hike into a wooded area but that's about it. Absolutely no el-gain. Not challenging. But will say ran across only nice friendly people.

This is one of the only (if not only) decent trail parks in the city for running dogs. Unfortunately a dog was recently killed here (August 2017) by another dog in the evening -- the best time to normally go to avoid heavy use. Weekends heavily used park generally. Most dogs are behaved and people generally quite friendly.

Nice park, lots of trails to pick and choose from. A good mix of wooded and grassy areas.
The trail is mostly dirt, and muddy in wet spots. Also there were a lot of dogs off leash in areas where they are supposed to be leashed (there is an off leash dog area within the park).

Great park! Some off leash areas for dogs buy everyone walks the whole park off leash, dogs love to swim in the pond. Very easy to get there!

Excellent place to take the dog for a walk within Winnipeg. Enjoy the scenery as your dog roams through the woods.
