Discover YEG Map
Use the interactive and mobile friendly map to discover the river valley parks and bike routes citywide.
Designed to support mobility for all, these maps provide information on trails and trail slope or grade (degree of steepness).
Paved trails in the River Valley Parks are 2.5m to 3m wide asphalt surfaces.
Other trails are granular (non-paved) with rough gravel surfaces and may not be appropriate for wheelchair users without assistance.
Check the legend to see which symbols designate paved and non-paved trails.
Grades are identified on the map as:
Moderate: Grades of 5 to 9%, will challenge some users with reduced mobility, especially in longer sections. For comparison, a well built wheelchair ramp is about a 6% grade
Difficult: Grades of 10% and greater, are challenging for most users and require good skills and fitness regardless of your mode of travel
Grades of less than 5% are not indicated on the map - changes to slopes are generally gradual and should not be a challenge to most users.

East End Trails
As one of the six River Valley Connections initiatives, the East End Trails Project has added approximately 16 kilometres of trails to the river valley in east Edmonton. New asphalt and gravel trails were funded in partnership with the City of Edmonton, River Valley Alliance, the Government of Alberta and the Government of Canada.
The trails officially opened to the public in fall 2018 and will be accessible year-round.
West End Trails
The West End Trails project added approximately 5 km of primary (paved) and secondary (gravel) trails to the river valley main trail.
The north extensions link Terwillegar Park with the Fort Edmonton Footbridge. The south extensions connect Terwillegar Park to the Anthony Henday pedestrian river crossing.
