City of Edmonton – River Valley Trail – Forest Heights Park
Running along the Saskatchewan River Valley, this trail traverses the city, passing through established neighbourhoods, city parks, stands of aspen parkland and boreal forest. Combining paved and granular surfaces, the trail varies in grade with some challenging sections climbing in and out of the valley. The trail crosses the river six times by pedestrian and traffic bridges.
Ten municipal parks and many of Edmonton’s most popular destinations are found on the trail including Muttart Conservatory, the High Level Bridge, Alberta Legislature, University of Alberta, Fort Edmonton Park, Rundle Park, the Valley Zoo and the Whitemud Natural Reserve.
