Squirrel Hill Recreation Trails

 Valley Life Recreation continues to execute on a comprehensive plan to develop the Squirrel Hills Recreation Area on highway #10 and highway #16 (adjacent to the Town of Minnedosa) to accommodate a world-class mountain biking, hiking and snowshoe trail network, in addition to the existing cross-country ski trails and hiking system. This will facilitate the promotion of active living, economic development and increased tourism in the Minnedosa, R.M. of Minto-Odanah and Westman region.

Mountain biking, hiking, snowshoeing, trail running, family walks, fat biking + more.

Flag Walk and Dam

Take a stroll beside the lake along our flag walk with flags from many provinces and countries. The short trail spans the distance between the Heritage Village and the spillway. 

Enjoy the views of Lake Minnedosa, fish ladder, spillway, walking trails, bison compound & a marsh filled with activity.

Oxbow Trail

Close to town centre are the Historic or Nature walking trails (also 
called Oxbow Trail), with options of walking across the spillway, around the bison compound, along the marsh walkway, across the Swinging Bridge, through the Heritage Village.

You can start this trail either in the downtown area, by the spillway, at Heritage Village, by the Bison compound or other access points. Enjoy nature as you hike near the river. You might spot a beaver or see a variety of birds. Check out the young bison in their compound. There is a lookout tower along the trail to see above the tree line and get your bearings!
