Sturgeon Valley Trail Gap Analysis

Outdoor Recreation

Project Highlights

Through the process of creating the Sturgeon Valley Area Structure plan, we identified a need to review the Valley’s trail system. We set out to identify where we could improve trail connection, especially to key destinations.

The County worked with trail users to prioritize the goals for the trail system and desired connections.

Trail users told us that they wanted to see:

  • All-season access to trails
  • Physically separated from traffic
  • Recreation focused trails that are meandering, scenic
  • Safe and convenient for kids and older adults

What We Heard Summary 

What’s Next?
The County will move to recommend a plan for Sturgeon Valley Trails, using public input and best practices.  The Sturgeon Valley Trails Plan will act as a blueprint for future trail and connection enhancements throughout the Sturgeon Valley.

The plan will be completed and presented to Council for approval in November 2021.
