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 came to Saskatoon for work. Ran 6miles around the river at sunrise. Easy walk to any point of the trail from most downtown hotels which was great. Great houses to look at, intertwined with trails, pavement and bridges. Got a great view of a hot air balloon. Some hills and straight away so you get a good run!

A pretty easy ride, I did about a 9 mile loop. The old train bridge was fun to cross.

Don't be fooled by the 26 km length into thinking you need to hike the whole. Saskatoon is called the City Of Bridges for a reason and depending on which bridges you take, you can hike from a .5 hour to 3 hrs. Lots of stops along the way for coffee, meals and picnics through the heart of the city.

This is all Saskatoon has to offer for trails or this type of natural beauty. Funding was cut recently for Meewasin Valley which is a sad day for those conservation minded individuals. Many homeless people setting up camps and leaving their garbage (toilet paper throughout the trees, sleeping bags and blankets tossed on the ground and many plastics / sharp litter clutter the shore front. I was out walking my dog along the Sutherland Dog Park that connects the trail and came across 3 used needles just sitting right off the trail. Absolutely this trail on both sides of the river are used as dumping grounds. What a shame when it’s Saskatoon’s ONLY trail.

Very delightful scenery and trails at the south west off leash recreation area in the Richard St Barbe Baker Urban Regional Park. Superb weather got there in a fluffy snow storm.

Very awesome selection of trails. Tried the afforestation area between the south west off leash recreation area and the civic operations centre this is a nice on leash area

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.
