Edmonton has over 160 km of shared pathways and shared trails to enjoy!
Shared pathways can be used for both recreation and commuting. They allow Edmontonians to safely enjoy the outdoors - on your bike, on your feet, or with your dog.
Let's learn to use the Language of the Path to communicate clearly and stay safe on our shared pathways.
Shared Pathways are paved, off-street paths made for many activities. You can bike, walk, run, scoot, blade, and more, unless otherwise indicated by signage.
Bikes are allowed to ride on sidewalks that are designated as a shared pathway. Shared pathways are typically 2.5m or wider and are marked with signs that indicate that they are shared by people on bikes and pedestrians.
A complete list of shared-use sidewalks is available under Class 1 Bicycle Highways of the.
Shared Trails are paths that are typically hard-packed with gravel, wood chips or dirt. You can bike, walk, run, and more except where otherwise indicated by local signage. Shared trails generally include activities such as walking and cycling, but also include horse riding in designated areas.
