Trail enthusiasts will delight in the extensive community trail system throughout Blackfalds, which also connects the community to Red Deer and Lacombe via the Great Trail  (formerly the Trans Canada Trail).

The Abbey Centre holds the distinction of being the only place in Canada where the Great Trail travels indoors. The Great Trail takes you from outdoors through to the second floor of the Abbey Centre and overlooks the Field House. Trail users may access this section of the Abbey Centre at no charge and experience the natural look and feel of this unique indoor trail.

For a detailed listing of community trails & recreational amenities see the Community Parks and Trails Map.
