Provincial Park Trails
Located in southern Saskatchewan, ATV riders will have the opportunity to pass through aspen, birch, green ash and Manitoba Maple trees. Along the 47 km of trails, there are plenty of scenic viewpoints and opportunities for wildlife viewing.
ATVs have to be trailered to the unloading area, just west of Little Kenosee. The ride is a loop that starts on Centre Road as far west as the Bennett Lake Trail and south to the Horse Lake Trail. The trail is clearly marked on the map, which can be picked up from the campground office, entry gate or admin office. Each ATV must display an ATV trail permit available at no charge from the campground office. ATV trails are accessible June 15 to the end of Labour Day weekend.
|Narrow Hills Provincial Park||ATVs must be trailered to the designated unloading area, located across the road from the park office at Lower Fishing Lake. Trails are limited within the park and primarily give access to trails outside of the park. ATVs may not be operated on park roads or within campgrounds and cottage subdivisions. Maps are available at the park office.
|Great Blue Heron Provincial Park||
Our park offers approximately ten kilometers of designated ATV trails within the park, with plenty more trails located on adjacent crown and municipal lands. The main park trail is located on the old Highway 952, locally known as ‘Poacher’s Road’. This trail connects the Murray Point area with the south end of Anglin lake. From here, riders can loop back to their starting point by travelling in the highway right-of-way, on Crown land trails near Clarine Lake and on municipal roads. All designated ATV trails are considered multi-use, so riders must be aware of other users – trappers, outfitters and potentially some vehicles.
A trail permit is required to ride within GBHPP. Permits are available at the park office, as well as the District of Lakeland and RM of Paddockwood offices. An ATV Use Acknowledgement form must be signed prior to obtaining a trail permit. This form and trail maps are also available at each permit location.
ATV enthusiasts are welcome to enjoy designated trails from June 15 to the Monday of Thanksgiving weekend, weather permitting. Trails are closed following a substantial rainfall in order to minimize ecological damage. Trail status is available by calling 306-982-6250.
