Description : Black and white photograph of a part of the Royal Northwest Mounted Police barracks at Grouard. The photograph depicts a two storey house with a large porch.
Commentaires : The Grouard - Peace River Trail has a long history. The first people to travel it were First Nations, including the ancestors of the Beaver Nation that would come to occupy this area. It is also known that this trail was used by the Cree who conducted raids (Grouard - Peace River Trail, p. vii). The trail has even been referred to as a Cree-Beaver War Trail (Trails we Blazed Together, p. 6). The fur traders were the next to make use of this trail, followed by the missionaries, the North West Mounted Police, the free traders, and finally the early homesteaders. On August 21, 1975, 5 people set out to re-trace this trail for historical and interest purposes but also in an attempt to discern its condition and whether it would make a suitable recreation trail. These 5 people were William Rea, Katharine Hoskin, Will Marx, Doug Babcock and Linda Barvir. At the end of this journey, it was deemed currently unsuitable as a hiking trail because of its condition, however the possibility existed for the future. They arrived in Reno on August 25, 1975. Katharine Hoskin, Linda Barvir, Will Marx and Doug Babcock completed the journey as far as Reno. William Rea was the only one to hike the entire trail. He completed the last part from Reno to Peace River on his own on August 26 - 27, 1975. In September 2010, as this narrative is being written, the Grouard-Peace River Trail is listed as a proposed trail by the Trans Canada Trail website (http://www.tctrail.ca/Alberta_trail_sections.php). The Grouard - Peace River Trail brochure put out by the Grouard - Peace River Trail Net Society states that the trail is useable but not all sections have been cleared. The Northern Alberta Backroad Map Outdoor Recreation Guide (2007) has the trail listed as a "Proposed TCT Trail", p. 34.
