STANLEY TRAIL

Geographical Location: RM Stanley boundary to Rosengart. Treaty 1.

Length: 69 km / 43 miles

Trail Types: natural trail, gravel trail, gravel road

Trail Activities: hike, bike, horse, ski, snowshoe



The trail enters from the RM of Thompson at the northwest corner and generally follows the line of the Pembina escarpment in a south easterly direction to within a mile of the Canada/U.S. border. The southern part of the trail closely follows the Boundary Commission Trail. Open prairie skyscapes, shale cliffs, wildflowers, abundant wildlife, open grassland, rich agricultural lands, rolling hills, creek crossings, oak stands, poplar bush and dramatic views of the Red River Valley all promise to delight trail users. The most technically challenging and scenic portions are the ones that follow the wooded creeks along the escarpment.

CAUTION:

When following roadways, trail users should always remain on the shoulder (may not be paved). It is recommended that you only use roadways during daylight hours and under appropriate weather conditions.
