Cranbrook Hill Greenway in Prince George, British Columbia, Canada is a protected greenway trail corridor located in the forested hills and the open meadows high above the community. Established in 1997 - 1998, the protected corridor was built in 3 phases and now covers over 300 hectares of green space with over 25 kilometres of trails.

The multi use trail is maintained by a community group and is a popular trail system used by joggers, bikers, walkers, xc skiers, snowshoers and horseback riders. No motorized vehicles permitted on the route. The trail is somewhat of a commuter trail as it connects the Otway Ski Centre to UNBC to Blue Spruce.

Many parts of the gravel, pine needle cushioned path is wheelchair accessible and baby stroller friendly. Although most of the route is earthy - the trail does have some gravel path sections, wooden bridges and boardwalk protecting the ground, bogs and the sensitive vegetation. Be aware this is a working forest so some sections of the trail may not always be accessible.

The Cranbrook Hill Greenway is best explored in three sections. The shortest section explores a birch tree forest for 0.8 kilometres connecting UNBC to the Forest of the World. The UNBC to Blue Spruce section is 5.8 kilometres navigating through Douglas Fir and birch trees leading to a viewpoint. The UNBC to Otway trail section is 18 kilometres and the most difficult part of the greenway.

The entire Cranbrook Hill Greenway provides many opportunities to view many eco systems and is worth the few hours it takes to explore some of the route. Plan the route for any of the highlights along the trail including the many forests, a natural climbing wall, the scenic viewpoints, the Labrador Tea Pond and the Forests of the World.
