Description

The Trans Canada Trail is a wide, gravel road that travels along the west edge of the park before looping around Lily Lake near the main entrance. It is one of the main trails in the park and provides access to many of the single track trails in the park. There are several hills along the trail but nothing too steep. The trail also provides access to the Mountain Bike Skills Park.
