Crow Wing Trail/Swinging Bride

Don’t let the snow hold you back from hiking! During the colder months, you’ll find many of Eastern Manitoba’s trails turn into breathtaking winter wonderlands – making it like a whole new trail!

The section of the Crow Wing Trail in the RM of Emerson-Franklin is magnificent! This trail is part of the Crow Wing Trail/Trans-Canada Trail and offers various scenic beauty. With a mix of prairie landscape, some forest coverage, a gorgeous view of the Roseau River paired with the Senkiw Swinging Bridge, and even some historic farm sites, you’ll never want to leave this trail!

A fun fact about the Senkiw Bridge is that it is the oldest swinging cable bridge in Manitoba! Built in 1946, it was constructed to enable students living on the south side of the river to attend Senkiw School on the north side. It replaced the hand-powered basket and pulley system that had been used since 1916. For more historical facts about the bridge, please follow this link.
