Navigate like Never Before! Happy Trails for You!
Happy Trails offer over 19 km of paved pedestrian and cycling pathways throughout the community, connecting many of the town’s recreational facilities. Set along the river and through the many parks and greenspaces found in town, the Happy Trails provide a picturesque and environmental alternative for navigating High River.
Residents can walk, bike and ride along the well-maintained walkways. Whether you’re searching for some exercise, an alternative route to travel through town, or a quiet spot for contemplation, you can find it on the Happy Trails.
"The Happy Trails play an important role in encouraging a healthy, low-cost, environmentally sustainable choice for recreation and transportation." - Mayor Snodgrass.
The Happy Trails are designed for multiple users and a range of recreational activities. Where feasible, the pathway system was designed to accommodate walkers, strollers, runners, people with disabilities, cyclists, in-line skaters and skateboarders. Key planning and design principles include continuity and avoiding gaps.
