The Rex Leach Museum Summer Trail is a scenic, multi-use trail, which is open to the public year-round. Take in a little history of the Valley during your visit. The trail is maintained by many local volunteers who have dedicated time to enhancing the trail over the years. During the summer, you can loop around the trail or take a walk down to the river's waters edge at various vantage points. Many locals walk their dogs here and it’s said to be the unofficial off-leash dog park. Please note the area is not fenced and owners are strongly advised to clean up after their dogs.

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!
