Des Nedhé Trail – Salt River
In Fort Smith, The Great Trail has both land and water components. The entire Slave River, from the Peace-Athabasca Delta in Alberta to Great Slave Lake in the Northwest Territories, is part of the Trail as a water route. On land, the Trail follows the 30-km portage route around the four sets of Slave River rapids, and then continues to where the Salt River meets the Slave River.
This stretch of the Trail is known as the DesNethé Discovery Trail.
