Long Description:
Dawson Creek The paved 4.5 kilometre Dawson Trail is administered by the Parks, Trails & Sports Fields department of the City of Dawson Creek. It meanders along Dawson Creek through mostly undeveloped land with benches, tables, gardens and picnic areas along its length. Each end of the Dawson Trail connects with the 23,000 kilometre long Great Trail, AKA the Trans Canada Trail (TCT), the world's longest hiking/biking/walking trail. From its eastern end the TCT proceeds northeast into Alberta, while from its western ends the TCT follows the Alaska Highway northwest through northern British Columbia and into The Yukon.

A four season trail, it is used by walkers, joggers, bikers and roller bladers through the spring and summer and into the fall, then taken over by cross country skiers and snowshoers when the snow begins to fall.
Dawson Trail
Dawson Trail is a year-round community walking path connecting various parks and areas of the community together. The pathway is a 4.5 kilometre route used by walkers, joggers, bikers, roller bladers and, even golf carts in the summer and cross country skiers and snowshoers in the winter months.

The paved pathway follows the banks of Dawson Creek and is consistently surrounded by green space. Starting from the main trailhead entrance at the corner of 8th Street and 110 Avenue the trail first connects to Kin Park, then links to Peace Park, Barbaree Park, Chamberlain Park and finishes with Rotary Park.

About the Route
Entering from Alberta near the small community of Clayhurst, the trail follows rural roads south for 67 kms, crossing the Peace River, passing through Rolla, and arriving to Dawson Creek. At this point, the TCT joins Dawson Creek's Dawson Trail through the city, bypassing all the city traffic. The trail route joins the Alaska Highway for most of its 968 km - through Fort St John, Fort Nelson, and various other communities before arriving to the Yukon border between Lower Post and Watson Lake - the only exception is a short detour at Kaskatinaw Provincial Park between Dawson Creek and Fort St. John; the highway bridge is narrow and the route uses the original highway bridge which lies further north.
