Historic Sites of Manitoba: Fort Ellice Trail Marker (Lions River Bend Park, Neepawa)

This marker in a roadside park in Neepawa denotes a portion of the prairie trail to the fur trade post of Fort Ellice. Known variously as the Carlton Trail, Saskatchewan Trail, and Edmonton Trail, it was the major route by which Aboriginals, fur traders, explorers, missionaries, surveys, and settlers travelled west from Upper Fort Garry to Fort Edmonton (now Edmonton, Alberta). The marker was erected by the Manitoba Heritage Council.
