Item Date
ca 1917


A portion of the MacDonald Trail along the Saskatchewan River. This was the first trail near Nipawin.


"The original transportation routes in Saskatchewan were along the rivers. Land trails and telegraph lines eventually followed the same routes. On the open prairie there were a few cart trails to supply fur trading posts, but it was not until settlement occurred that a more elaborate system of roads was built."
