|PARKS and RECREATION> City Parks> Riverfront Trail
The Riverfront Trail System was established by the City of Quesnel to give residents and visitors access to the river environment and to provide a scenic, peaceful circle tour through the community. The original trail system in North Quesnel was built in 1990. It is five kilometres long and takes about one hour to complete at a leisurely pace. Ceal Tingley Park, located at the confluence of the Quesnel and Fraser Rivers is "Kilometer 0" of the system and has many attractions within its borders.
Shortly after, the trail system was expanded to include areas in West Quesnel traversing the west side of the Fraser River, as well as a stroll along Baker Creek. The Fraser River Footbridge, the world's longest wooden truss pedestrian bridge, is an integral part of the trail system.
In recent years, the trail network has been expanded to reach the North Cariboo Community Campus, the Quesnel and District Arts and Recreation Centre and South Quesnel neighbourhoods via a safe highway underpass. There are currently more than 12 kilometres of trails for people to enjoy.
