Home to a staggering diversity of living things and unique histories, Riding Mountain’s trails are the best way to connect with it all! Summer and fall you can stroll, run, pedal or trot nearly 370 km’s of trails in all areas of the Park, each with their own flavour. Cross country skiing, snowshoeing or fat biking along one of the nearly 130 km of winter trails is the best way that you can embrace Riding Mountain National Park in the winter season too. This magical time of the year won’t let you down and will warm your heart.

Trails, COVID-19 and your health and safety
  • Parks Canada is asking Canadians to support the national effort to limit the spread of COVID-19.
  • Keep a healthy space of 2 metres between you and others.
  • Be extra cautious when engaging in any activities to avoid injury and/or getting lost to help minimize the demands placed on emergency response, search and rescue teams, and on the health care system.
  • Avoid common greetings like hand shakes and high fives
  • Leave no trace when you visit outdoor spaces. Please take all your garbage with you and help keep these places clean.
  • Abide by all travel advisories and area closures.
Visitor Safety
  • Park visitors are responsible for their own safety and must be self-sufficient in dealing with any emergency that may occur. Cell phone service is unreliable in the backcountry of RMNP
  • Plan your travel route
  • Know the terrain and conditions
  • Check the weather
  • Let someone know when and where you are going and when you expect to return.
  • Bring the essentials. (warm change of clothing, extra food and water, fire stating kit, first aid kit, navigation/communication device)
