Candle Lake Trails Advisory Group Overview:

Walking Candle Lake Trails (planned and unplanned) has long been a common and favourite activity for residents and visitors alike in our area.  The Baldy Trails (summer and winter) which were created by the Provinicial authorities and local volunteers are part of the system.  Aschim Homestead and trails/boardwalks started by the Aschim family, expanded by the Sask Forestry Association and now maintained by the Candle Lake Communities in Bloom (CiB) are part of the system.  More locally and directly under the CLTAG as an affilkiate of the P & R, trails have been developed with 3 different focus's.

1) Safety walking trails - designed to move people around the core Waskateena Bay area from Fisher Creek area, past Waskateena and up to Nobles Point. 

2) Connecting walking trails - designed to connect all subdivisions built in the past as well in the future to the downtown core. 

3) Nature trails - designed to crate and promote activity walks into the forested areas around Candle Lake as well as much of the shoreline interface with our local water bodies.

Formally created in the early 2000's CLTAG has a mandate to plan, design, and promote activity trails for walking and biking in the Resort Village of Candle Lake.

Key to the success of this group are the trail volunteers and active walkers who see walking as an important aspect f resort life.  Any persons who have an interest in helping maintain and build these trails are asked to contact Peggy at the Village office 306-929-2236.

5 Year Plan

  1. Fix low spots on West Side paved trail and then resurface them as well as finishing the resurfacing of the trail from Island View to Lakeview Drive.

  2. Resurface the gravel path from C&S parking lot to Quincy's Corner to give walkers a smooth surface options from C&S to Lakeview Drive.

  3. Whenever possible continue to have subdivisions connected to a trails system (not on our roadways, if possible), paved, chipped or gravel, or a nature path.

  4. Implement a Village manned and funded maintenance system for all our trails, Volunteers only have to much physical abilities and equipment to keep the trails in the shape that residents seem to want.

  5. Maintain a painted walking strip on the east side of Simon Lehne for the safety of walkers and cyclists.

  6. Maintain a painted walking strip on the paved walking strip on the north side of Main Street from Hwy 265 to the Mini Golf fro pedestrian safety.

  7. Recognize that when nature deals us extra wet or blowdown conditions that it is OK to have some trails temporarily closed due to conditions beyond the village's control.

  8. Continue to communicate to the public via trails pamphlets, improved trail signage and other means to keep safe and accessible foot paths as viable options for residents and tourists alike.

  9. For practical budgeting purposes, evaluation of all trails may be done by trail members and/or professional consultants as required to assist with the annual operating plan to prioritze items to be addressed in the 5 Year Plan.

  10. Connect pedestrian traffic from C&S Service to the Bayview Business district including a zebra cross walk along the highway with the possibility of lights.

  11. Annually review operating plan and prioritze items to be address in 5 Year Plan.
