Lakeshore Trail Re-design

Riding Mountain National Park (RMNP) maintains numerous trails for visitors to experience the natural and cultural resources that the park protects and presents. The Lakeshore Trail is a 1.3 km (one-way) hard packed trail suitable for walking, biking and pushing strollers. Over the years this trail has experienced severe erosion causing bank instability and sediment to enter the lake, affecting water quality and aquatic habitat. RMNP proposes to enhance the entire length of trail, addressing erosion and drainage issues and ensuring the trail meets accessibility requirements. Components of the project include placement of large rip rap along the shoreline, replacement of 10 docks, widening and building up the trail elevation, re-sloping steep sections and the placement of benches for resting/viewing areas along the trail.
