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 pave them as well as finishing the paving of trail from Island View to Lakeview Drive. (next year, 2015, when the pavement is in town)

  2. Pave the gravel path from C&S parking lot to Quincy’s Corner to give walkers a paved option from C&S to Lakeview Drive. (2015)

  3. Continue to have all 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 so 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. Recognize that when nature deals us extra wet or blowdown conditions that it is OK to have some trails closed due to conditions beyond the villages control.

  7. Continue to press for a viable paved walking strip on the north side of Main Street from Hwy 265 to Mac Jac’s and the Mini Golf for pedestrian safety.

  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 a walk through of all trails by an engineer or construction/paving rep is needed by as soon as next year. Proper planning with appropriate dollar figures can then be done.

  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
