Spectacular vistas, challenging terrain, rich heritage, and diverse vegetation and wildlife, make the Escarpment of Riding Mountain a fascinating place for visitors and potentially one of Manitoba’s premier attractions.

To help this area reach its full potential the Escarpment of Riding Mountain Area Strategy was developed. The strategy’s goal is to ensure visitors have genuine opportunities to discover, experience, and learn about the area while protecting it for future generations. By working towards its vision, objectives and actions, Parks Canada hopes visitors, stakeholders and our neighbouring communities are further inspired about the park and region.

In the last three years Parks Canada worked with an Advisory Board, experts, plus community leaders and members to develop the strategy. Parks Canada appreciates their insightful guidance, knowledge and commitment and wants to continue to work together so this Area Strategy evolves and comes to life.

It is now time to celebrate! The Celebrate the Escarpment of Riding Mountain event will gather our communities together so we can discover and enjoy just some of the elements that make this area so special.

The day includes the grand opening of the Reeve’s Ravine Trail; a hiking and biking trail that has been touted the best mountain biking trail between Thunder Bay and Alberta! This trail was designed and build with the work of the International Mountain Biking Association, Mantioba Escarpment Trail Society, community volunteers, First Nations and Parks Canada. A true example of what the area strategy wished to achieve – when we work together we can achieve great things.
