Assiniboine Forest / Harte Trail
Corner of Chalfont Road and Grant Avenue
Winnipeg, MB R3P 2N6
The Harte Trail is situated on a former railway line, The Harte Subdivison of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway and later the Canadian National Railway. The line was built in 1894 and was last used by the Prairie Dog Central Railway in 1974. Its original fate was to become a road, but members of the community lobbied for it to become a trail. It opened to the public in 1990 and in 2000, became a part of the Trans-Canada Trail.
The trail is covered in crushed limestone, much like the trails in RidgeWood West. Running for a total of 6.5 km, when out on bike or by foot, you’ll experience the best of prairie nature; open fields, lush forest, and the sights and sounds of woodland animals.
