Trans Canada Trail is looking to connect the trail through Leduc County in the future, and the county is encouraging any plans to stick to provincial highways rather than county roads.

The issue was brought before council at its Nov. 8 meeting, having been carried over from July.

At this time there are no formal approved trail connections for Leduc County and it is expected the southern portion of the trail will run along Highway 2A from the County of Wetaskiwin. However, that also has not been finalized.

“We’ve also been in contact with Wetaskiwin County to see where that linkage may come from the south,” said Dean Ohnysty, director of parks and recreation.

“If there comes a time Leduc County roads are needed we’ll bring that back before you,” he added.

The proposed map indicated the trail would follow Highway 2A as far north as Millet before heading west into the county, and west again north of the City of Leduc.

Councillors were concerned about liabilities that would come allowing the use of county roads for the Trans Canada Trail.
