Fort Saskatchewan will soon be linked with Strathcona County and Edmonton via trail.
 
The longest and grandest recreational trail in the world will wind through the region, connecting the three communities.
 
Trans Canada Trail is contributing $825,000 towards creating six and a half kilometres of gravel trail along Range Road 232, north of Highway 16 to Township Road 540.
 
Once complete, the Strathcona County part of the trail will be 22 kilometres in length, featuring both asphalt and gravel trails. 
 
“Strathcona County is honoured to be part of this legacy project that further unites communities through a recreational trail system,” said mayor Roxanne Carr. “Connecting to the Great Trail (Trans Canada Trail) is a particularly appropriate project for Canada’s sesquicentennial.”
 
By the end of 2017, the year of Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation, the Trans Canada Trail will span 24,000 kilometres, link Canada's three oceans and connect over 15,000 communities.
