Trans Canada Trail

ATTENTION: Currently, the Trans Canada Trail between Lumsden and Deer Valley is CLOSED due to construction work and new signage installation (the section within the vicinity of the Seven Bridges Road area). Please watch for an upcoming announcement for the reopening of the trail!

TransCanada Trail Pedestrian Bridge Project – In 2022, a new section of TransCanada Trail will open just west of Lumsden. This section will be a part of the trail that connects Lumsden to Deer Valley. The bridge will be a legacy for the Lumsden area, a destination trail to share with family and friends, enjoying the beauty of the valley. Would you/your business like to be a part of this project? Tax deductible receipts are available! Sponsorship levels: Bronze (100+), Silver (1000+), Gold (10,000+), Bridge Naming (50,000+). Contact Chris at 306-533-6147 or email: [email protected] .

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!
