Neepawa Tourism is proud to unveil the newest addition to the Neepawa-Langford section of The Great Trail. The trailhead sign located in Riverbend Park will be a wonderful starting location for outdoor enthusiasts or those who are looking to get outdoors for some fresh air.

The trail directs you to several familiar landmarks such as the Stoney Creek School No.133, the Canada 150 commemorative loop and downtown Neepawa. Whether you go north or south along the trail, we hope it inspires active living and transportation throughout the community. Additionally, there are 28 new wayfinding signs located along the trail that assist in easier navigation through the trail system.

The Great Trail has installed 28 wayfinding signs along the paths in and around Neepawa.

The Great Trail (formerly known as the Trans Canada Trail) is supported by Canadians from all regions, corporations, foundations and all levels of government. They fund community based projects such as this one, covering all costs associated with the project. The Great Trail has over 24,000 km of trail across Canada, approximately 10km of that winds through our own Neepawa. It is the world’s longest trail network, crossing 13 provinces and territories and it even reaches to the Atlantic, Pacific and Arctic Oceans.

We encourage the community to get outside and enjoy all the sights that The Great Trail has to offer!
