Take a journey on the Red Willow Trail System
As of May 28, the following low-lying areas within the Red Willow Trail system are closed due to flooding:
- Under St. Albert Trail south side

Residents are asked to use caution, obey all signage and avoid the flooded areas. While the City continues to monitor the situation, any concerns can be directed to City Public Works/Utilities at 780-459-1557 or after-hours emergency at 780-458-2020.
The City of St. Albert has a beautiful trail system that winds throughout its lush landscape. Covering 99.5 kilometres, the system stretches down the river valley connecting to the city's major parks, neighbourhoods, and urban areas. Everyone can enjoy the trails by walking, cycling, in-line skating, or running.

Parks nearby the trails include Red Willow Park, Lacombe Lake Park, Lions Park, Kingswood Park, Big Lake, Riverlot 56 and the St. Albert Place Promenade.
Residents use the trails for all different types of activities, and with so many users, it is important to share the trail responsibly. Please follow the rules below so the trails can be safe and enjoyable for everyone.
PHYSICAL DISTANCING ON TRAILS
Whether running, walking or biking the trails, please be courteous of others who are sharing the path and observe physical distancing. Share these spaces responsibly and alert others to your presence by using your voice, bell or horn as appropriate.
Right of Way and yield
Keep to the right of the pathway except when passing or turning left, and move off the trail to the right when stopping. Yield to slower moving traffic: cyclists to pedestrians, joggers to walkers. Move off to the right side of the trail for less mobile users.
RING YOUR BELL
Using your bike’s bell is a simple and courteous way you can notify others on trails that you’re approaching. It is law in Alberta to have a horn or bell on a bike and not having one can cost a cyclist $78 in fines.
Be aware of proper skating and braking techniques before going on the trails. Remain at a safe speed so you can quickly brake or stop if needed.
Remember to shoulder check and look behind you each time you turn or move out to pass, and always use your hand signals.
Trails provide opportunities for all. Lead by example and help teach each other proper trail etiquette.
Please ensure your dog is on-leash when using or within one metre of any trail. This guideline includes trails passing within off-leash areas.
