Route description

Pembina Valley located in southern Manitoba demarks the southern terminus of PTH 13, featuring agricultural plains, and rolling hills.[4] PTH 13 begins at the junction with PTH 3 and PR 245 at Carman. Carman's slogan, A Community of All Seasons. . . for Lots of Reasons! gives support to its growing economic horticulture base Vanderveen Greenhouses, Canada's biggest greenhouse operation and Aubin's Nurseries. Carman's municipal campground is located in King's Park near the Carman Aquatic Centre.[5] Carman is located on the banks of the Boyne River. The Stephenfield Lake Watershed Management Plan and Stephenfield Provincial Park are located to the west of PTH 13.[6] Grain and livestock farming are the main agricultural pursuits of residents of Grey Rural Municipality.[7] Sale River intersects the Transcanada 1 and PTH 13 approximately 16 km (9.9 mi) west of Portage La Prairie.[8]
