Saskatchewan Landing’s Best Nature Trails

Ready to hit the trail but need to decide which one to try first? Here are some of the best nature trails Saskatchewan Landing has to offer:

Prairie Vista

Arguably the park’s most popular hike, this moderately challenging 3.5 km trail takes an average of 1 hour to complete. With lush prairie greens throughout, the trail features great viewing spots for deer and antelope, and it is unlikely you’ll run into too many other hikers. Climb up the hill to the viewpoint and look over the majestic coulee landscape to view the Goodwin House and bridge from afar.

Rings, Ruts & Remnants Interpretative Trail

Spend 1.5 – 2 hours hiking into the past with this historic hike. Walk among the tipi rings and stone cairns of the Indigenous people that inhabited this river valley. View the remnants of past settlers’ homesteads and the ruts created by thousands of wagons as they made their way through Saskatchewan Landing. This trail has several large hills that may be difficult for some hikers. Horses and hikers share this trail.

Ridges & Ravines Trail

Located just north of the Bearpaw campground, this 45-minute hike will take you through some of the geological and geographical features of the park. You’ll learn how ravine hollows and rib-like ridges along the sides of the South Saskatchewan River Valley were created and how they enhance the diversity of the prairie ecosystem. This hike has a gradual incline and then a sharp decline that could be difficult for some hikers.

Beaver Flat 50 Course

As the course of the Beaver Flat 50 is held annually in the Saskatchewan Landing Provincial Park, this trail isn’t for the casual hiker! It is a hilly and hard trail run; however, it offers exhilarating views. Great for both hiking and trail running, and it’s unlikely you’ll come across many other explorers!
