Victoria Trail Region

Victoria Trail

The Victoria Trail Region is defined by the historic Victoria Trail, which runs alongside the North Saskatchewan River. This trail was used by early European explorers, fur traders, Métis, and settlers and is now a significant part of Alberta's cultural heritage. The Victoria District National Historic Site of Canada is a recognition of this district's diverse cultural landscape, its topography and settlement forms, and its architecture, which speaks to the history of settlement in this area. The district is also strategically located on Cree and Stony First Nations' migration routes, making it an important stop for travellers and settlers.
