The Lumsden/Deer Valley section of the Trans Canada Trail had extensive upgrades in 2010. In total, approximately 16 km of trail stretches from Lumsden River Park to Deer Valley. There are 5 information kiosks on the trail, each providing an overview of the Lumsden to Deer Valley section including a detailed topographical map of the area where the kiosk is situated. Walking, biking and hiking are suitable activities on the trail and canoeing/kayaking is a popular pursuit in the Qu’Appelle River and Wascana Creek. During the winter, walking within the town limits and Nordic skiing adjacent to the trail is possible; however, snowshoeing is the only suggested activity in the valley sections.
The Town of Lumsden would like to extend a big thank you to the Trans Canada Trail Committee for volunteering their time and making this project a success!
