Partnership Initiative Program
Third-party funding is allocated to dedicated trail projects. These funds are obtained through partners willing to spend dedicated funds on trails such as the Trans Canada Trail and the National Trails Coalition.
A lot of consideration goes into building a trail, including planning for dimensions, activity needs and signage. With that in mind, the Saskatchewan Trails Association has developed a Trail Planning Workbook that will guide you through the initial stages of planning a new trail. The manual will help you evaluate your proposed route, delegate tasks to everyone in your group, get endorsements/funding, and much more. The document is available in two formats:
Trail Planning Workbook (PDF)
Trail Planning Workbook (DOCX)
You can also consult the Saskatchewan Parks and Recreation Association Trail Specification Guidelines, a resource to help you get started developing trails in your community. Read the document here.
