The purpose of the trail spans centuries. In our area the trail was the Metis used this trail for trading and pursuit of buffalo and wove groves in it with their Red River Carts that can still be seen today. The first villages in SW Manitoba were established along the trail, flourishing until the railroad came to the area. For centuries it served as the highway to the west transporting goods and people. The trail later was used to establish the border between what is now Canada and the USA.
