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.
