Proudly connecting you to the river valley

The River Valley Alliance is a not-for-profit organization made up of the six shareholder municipalities bordering the North Saskatchewan River in the Edmonton Metropolitan region.
Imagine traversing a scenic, uninterrupted trail stretching over 100 kilometers, winding through the heart of our beautiful region. This vision is coming to life with our ambitious project to create the Amisk Wacîw Mêskanaw Trail (Beaver Hill Road Trail), connecting Devon to Fort Saskatchewan. We're thrilled to announce that we are already 75% complete, bringing us closer to offering an unparalleled outdoor experience for hikers, bikers, and nature enthusiasts. Join us in this exciting journey as we pave the way for adventure, community, and nature.


Over two decades ago, a dedicated group of volunteers united with a common vision and a deep love for the river valley. Their dream was more than just a plan—it was a heartfelt commitment to transform the river valley into a world-class, integrated park and trail system that spans multiple municipalities. This visionary effort laid the foundation for the RVA's mission today. We are proud to continue their legacy, helping municipalities fund the construction of projects that connect people to this natural wonder. Join us in celebrating this rich history and in building a future where everyone can experience the beauty and serenity of the river valley.

The trail's chosen name, Amisk Wacîw Mêskanaw (Beaver Hill Road Trail), was graciously gifted in a ceremony by Elder Jerry Saddleback and is in nêhiyawêwin, the Cree language. This name invites everyone to "sing the song" of the river valley, nurturing a deeper sense of responsibility and belonging for all who traverse the trail.

Trek The Trails

We’ve created a series of Trail Trek How-to blogs for the Edmonton-region river valley that teach you how to get out on the trails. We have a mix of short and long routes for both beginners or those seeking more of a challenge. All are designed to help you easily explore different sections of the river valley!

Land Acknowledgement: Amisk Wacîw Mêskanaw is a 100 km pedestrian trail connecting six municipalities through the North Saskatchewan River Valley: Parkland County, Devon, Edmonton, Strathcona County, Fort Saskatchewan and Sturgeon County. The River Valley Alliance acknowledges that the lands on which these communities and trail reside are in Treaty Six Territory. We deeply respect and wish to honour the diverse Indigenous Peoples whose ancestors' footsteps have marked this territory for centuries, including the nêhiyawak (Cree), Denesuliné (Dene), Nahkawininiwak (Saultaux or Plains Ojibwe), Nakota Isga (Nakota Sioux), and Niitsitapi (Blackfoot) Peoples. We further acknowledge these lands as the Métis homeland and the home of one of the largest communities of Inuit south of the 60th parallel.
