This is a shorter hike than what we usually do but it's a route that is relatively 'high and dry'. And that's a big plus because walking conditions in the city continue to be generally treacherous. Our hike will be an 'out and back' along the Bishop Grandin Greenway with a short loop through the St Vital Pulberry neighbourhood.
hike length - 4 km

some history -
Bishop Grandin Greenway is sometimes referred to as a ‘retrofit trail” or a trail built after major construction, this scenic trail weaves its way through a strip of public greenspace that skirts Bishop Grandin Blvd.
In 2000, volunteers began developing an accessible network of nature areas and public pathways to link and support both human and wildlife communities. This recently completed multi-use trail now effectively serves that purpose. Bishop Grandin Greenway Inc. continues to be a catalyst for improving the area with extensive tree plantings, interpretive signage, a community garden, eco-education site and bench and planter installations along with many other amenities.
