The McGillivrayTrail is a new multi-use pathway that runs east / west connecting Pembina Hwy to FortWhyte Alive. The eastern section that borders an older residential neighbourhood is the most scenic and boasts a fine canopy of mature trees. The western section runs adjacent to Linden Woods on a nicely bermed and landscaped path before it meets up with Winnipeg’s largest ‘power centre’ – a large collection of big box stores.
