Strathcona County is proud to be part of the regional trail system along the North Saskatchewan River. The Strathcona County Regional Trail portion is 22 kilometres long, and connects the Strathcona Provincial Science Park to Fort Saskatchewan.
Funding for this trail has been made possible through contributions by Strathcona County, Trans Canada Trail, River Valley Alliance and Inter Pipeline Ltd.
