The trail, located just west of the Capilano Bridge on the southside of the river, will be renewed.

Project Update - August 2023

The trail is now open and available for Edmontonians to enjoy.

Project Overview

The Capilano Bridge Trail (southwest) project focuses on an approximately 100m stretch of paved asphalt trail running along the North Saskatchewan River that is located approximately 250m west of the Capilano Bridge on the south side of the river 
(see map ).

As a result of a landslide that occurred in the area, the trail was significantly damaged.  The trail was severely cracked and uneven, either raised or sunk, in a number of locations. The landslide was likely triggered by periods of heavy and prolonged rainfall in summer 2020. Timber retaining walls that were installed in the 70s were also damaged and needed to be replaced.

The trail was closed to the public in July 2020 due to safety concerns, but was reopened to the public in fall 2022.
