Hiking Trails
Danielson Provincial Park is home to two major trails - the Trans Canada Trail (The Great Trail) and the Prairie View Nature Trail - both, are designed for hikers, cyclists and mountain bikers. The Trans Canada Trail (The Great Trail) provides users with breathtaking views of various landscapes, including wetlands, shoreline views of Lake Diefenbaker, wooded areas, native prairie and large coulees. Meanwhile, the Prairie View Nature Trail follows a looped pathway that connects back to the park's campground.

Cyclists and mountain bikers are asked to watch for pedestrians and use caution as parts of the trails can become quite sandy, making them more difficult to ride on.

Visitors may also come across a variety of wildlife and bird species while on the trails. Jackrabbits, western meadowlarks, deer, coyotes and sharp-tailed grouse are just some of the species you may see along the way.
