Top 5 Family Friendly Hikes in or near Saskatoon

Published Mar 23, 2020

You might think a good hike would be tough to come by near Saskatoon, but there are some good ones, particularly for beginners and families, as the altitude isn't overly high.

Hiking with your kids is an ideal and inexpensive way to get them out of the house and into nature.  While it may be tougher in the winter months, here are some trails to explore as the weather heats up for summer:

Here are our top 5, in no specific order:


Wanuskewin Heritage Park

Not just a great place to hike, but a place to learn.  Rich in First Nations history, you can visit buffalo jump sites, archaeological digs, and the interpretive centre.




Meewasin Valley Trail

Any article about hiking in Saskatoon has to include the Meewasin Valley Trail.  Being close to the city, hand having plenty of trails to choose from, this is a good place to start.



Beaver Creek Conservation Area

Take a trek among the wildflowers.  With shorter trails (the longest one being the Living Sky Trail at just over 3 KM) this makes for a good option for beginners, or those looking for a quicker hike.



Blackstrap Provincial Park

Located a bit out of the city, Blackstrap is quite a landmark since it features a man-made mountain, above the surrounding plains. It's also a great place for lake activities and mountain biking.



Duck Mountain Provincial Park

Also a bit further away from the city as well, Duck Mountain features a few different easy and moderate hiking trails.  Being a cross-country skiing ground in the winter, it is well-marked.
