Riding your horse through one of the largest protected wilderness areas in Saskatchewan is a rewarding experience. Whether you’re looking for a relaxing day trip or a rustic backcountry trip, Prince Albert National Park has a trail for you. Choose from one of the following horse-friendly trails throughout the park:

Trail NameLength
Elk Trail 39 km one way
Hunters Lake Trail 12 km one way
West Side Boundary Trail 25 km one way
Amyot Lake Trail 15.5 km loop

Wagons are allowed on horse-friendly trails. Not all bridges are suitable for wagon-use. For information on bridge and trail conditions contact the Visitor Centre.

The Prince Albert National Park Visitor Guide has the locations of designated riding trails within the park.

Do your part to protect the Park’s wilderness areas by practicing low-impact travel:

  • Maximum group size is 15 horses
  • Stay on the trail.
  • Ride your horses without horseshoes to reduce damage to soft trails.
  • Pack in cubed or pelleted, weed-free feeds to reduce the deposition of foreign seeds via manure and wash all wagons prior to entering the Park.

See the Prince Albert National Park Horse-Use Guide (PDF, 2.8 Mb)  for more details.
