Multi-Use Trails | Bill Thorpe Walking Bridge | Cross Country Ski Trails

The continued expansion of non-motorized multi-use trails is a priority, as identified in the Municipal Plan. In future years, the current network of trails will be expanded with the development of on-road connections as described in the Trails/Bikeways Master Plan.

Multi-Use Trails

More than 115 km of non-motorized multi-use trails accessible to pedestrians, non-emission mobility assisted devices (i.e., motorized wheelchairs), and cyclists. During the Winter paved sections are plowed, while trails in Odell and Killarney Lake Parks are groomed for cross-country skiers, snowshoers and walkers.

Trail Visitor Centre
The Trail Visitor Centre, 180 Station Road, is the hub of Fredericton's extensive trail system. It’s a warm, friendly rest area with washrooms, information on Fredericton's trail system, and other events throughout the area.

Trailside Adult Fitness Equipment
Due to requests from the public, the City installed and maintains adult fitness equipment along our Crosstown Trail, near the intersection of Beaverbrook Drive and University Avenue. This equipment is very versatile and can be used by adults with a wide variety of fitness levels. The initial site has proven to be very popular and more pieces are planned for other recreation sites in the future.

Bill Thorpe Walking Bridge

The City has announced plans to move forward with the deck replacement for the Bill Thorpe Walking Bridge. The work will preserve the cherished city icon for generations to come. Work on the 3.9 million dollar project will begin in September after the Harvest Jazz and Blues Festival and last for approximately four months during which the bridge will be closed.

An active transportation link over the Saint John River, connecting the north and south sides of the city of Fredericton, and serving residents and visitors alike.

Cross Country Ski Trails

The groomed and tracked trails of Killarney Lake Park and Odell Park are a wonderful way to explore the depths of the forested landscapes of two very extraordinary city parks. Every effort is made to have these trails groomed and tracked for skiing as soon as possible after a snowfall. When time permits, additional trails are groomed for walking. It's important to remember that during the winter season trails may not be maintained on a regular basis.

Remember to use with caution, and at your own risk. Be safe and have fun!
