Rossburn Subdivision Trail

From tracks to trail

The Rossburn Subdivision Trail, part of the Trans Canada Trail, runs 176 km from Russell to Neepawa. This multi-use, non-motorized gravel trail follows the abandoned CN rail line formerly known as Rossburn Subdivision. Most of the trail is suitable for hiking, biking and horseback riding. During the winter, Rossburn Subdivision Trail is part of Snoman Inc‘s official snowmobiling trails as No.13. It connects to Riding Mountain National Park through the Riding Mountain Trans Canada Trail Network with the Flying Eagle Link Trail and the Elk Link Trail. Read more…

  • Elphinstone: New bridge – project finished
    Over the last months, we had a project in Elphinstone ongoing. An old railway bridge needed major updates. Thanks to the generous support from Trans Canada Trail, Trails Manitoba and Snoman Inc. Tourism Relief Fund, it was possible to rebuild the bridge over Little Saskatchewan River.
