Rails to Trails Project

What is the Rails to Trails Project?

The Rails to Trails pathway system, when complete, will connect the Midland Bridge to Wayne, doubling the distance of pathway available for active transportation (walking/jogging/running, biking, skiing, snow-shoeing) in the Drumheller Valley!

You can help Build this Community Legacy!


Fundraising is being completed by a volunteer Task Force of the Town of Drumheller. The goal is to get the pathway useable as quickly as possible, with the minimum of the bridges and pathways within Drumheller completed in 2024.

Help build a community legacy project that will transform Drumheller.

Your support, no matter how big or small, will help open the pathway as quickly as possible. Making the corridor into a community path is based on a thoughtful concept of grading, paving with recycled asphalt, benches, shade, garbage and recycling bins, dog relief stations, bike racks repair stations, safety upgrades, and signage.

To recognize your generous donation (>$1,000), your name, business, or organization will be listed on the donor wall located at the Main Station.
