Crow Wing Trail


Imagine riding on a Red River cart as you follow the path of the fur traders.

Crow Wing Trail, now part of the Trans-Canada Trail, closely parallels the original trail route. It connected the Red River Settlement to the railway hub of St. Paul, Minnesota, and wound through the scenic grounds of what is now the Saint-Pierre-Jolys Museum site. The first printing press of the Winnipeg Free Press was originally carried along this historic trail.
