History

The Red Coat Trail roughly follows an approximately 1300km journey taken by the North West Mounted Police to bring the law and order to the Canadian West. From Fort Dufferin, Manitoba to the Old Man River in Southwestern Alberta where they established Fort Macleod, this was the Great March West.
