About Athabasca Landing Trail

Athabasca Landing Trail Map

The Athabasca Landing Trail will be a continuous, non-motorized recreational trail that will run 150 km from Fort Saskatchewan to Athabasca in north-central Alberta.

Wherever feasible, the trail will follow the route of the historic Athabasca Landing Trail built in 1876 and dubbed "The 100 Mile Portage." Interpretive signage will highlight the unique history and attractions in the region.

The Athabasca Landing Trail is an official part of the Trans Canada Trail and the start of its only overland route into the northern territories. The trail will eventually link to other mixed-use trails such as Peace River Trail and Alberta's Iron Horse Trail that accommodate both motorized and non-motorized users.

The trail is currently under development as a partnership of Alberta TrailNet Society, Government of Alberta, the five municipalities along the trail and two regional trail groups. The steering committee has representation from all partners.
