As of June 1st, Riding Mountain National Park began a gradual reopening of some outdoor areas, facilities and services. Please check our website regularly for the current status of this location and others.

Home to a staggering diversity of living things and unique histories, Riding Mountain’s trails are the best way to connect with it all! Summer and fall you can stroll, run, pedal or trot nearly 370 km’s of trails in all areas of the Park, each with their own flavour. Cross country skiing, snowshoeing or fat biking along one of the nearly 130 km of winter trails is the best way that you can embrace Riding Mountain National Park in the winter season too. This magical time of the year won’t let you down and will warm your heart.
