The Rose Trail is a year-round, multi-use trail that can be enjoyed by people of all ages and fitness levels. This trail offers the citizens of Rosetown and tourists a safe and secure designated area to walk, jog or cycle their way towards a healthier lifestyle. Communities in Bloom formed a Trail Committee in March 2002 and then the Town of Rosetown took over care and maintenance once the trail was complete. The Rose Trail is approximately 6.0 kilometers in length.

Heritage Trail: Phase I of the trail is now completed. It begins at the Museum and ends at the Prairie View Campground on Marshall Avenue. The Rose Trail Committee has planted a flower bed at the beginning of the Trail in co-operation with the Museum Committee. A memorial bench was donated and has been placed at the beginning of the Trail. An arch was constructed by the Rosetown Hutterite Colony to mark the entrance to the trail.

Nature Trail: Phase II is located along Marshall Avenue from the Prairie View Campground to Highway 4. A rest area was constructed along the Trail and six light standards were installed along Marshall Avenue in 2006. There is winter hours for the lights, which will be from November 1st to April 1st from 6:00 am to 9:00 am and 5:00 pm to 11:00 pm, and summer hours will be from April 1st to October 31st from 8:00 pm to 12:00 am. The rest of the construction is targeted for completion by fall 2007.
