Experiences Trails

Connect With Nature

The Red Deer region is well known for its remarkable trail system and its commitment to preserving nature and wildlife. It was here in Red Deer in 1924 that Alberta’s first federal migratory bird sanctuary was established on almost 118 hectares of protected land within the city limits. Today there are more than 100 kilometres of trails inside the city and almost 3,000 kilometres more in the region connecting communities and people with nature.

Local Tip. Did You Know?

Red Deer made Expedia's list of The 34 Most Breathtaking Places in North America - in part due to our extensive trail system. The writer went as far as to say: "One of the best features of Red Deer is that you can just as easily enjoy the lively downtown area as the great outdoors. It’s the latter category that really makes the town stand out, with Maskepetoon Park as the local favourite."
