ELBOW TRAIL IS OFFICIALLY OPEN!

On May 13, a grand opening ceremony was held for Elbow Trail. The trail system will provide the people of Elbow and its surrounding communities, as well as visitors to Lake Diefenbaker, with an excellent natural surface, environmentally-friendly trail system that is safe for beginner and intermediate hikers, cyclists, cross-country skiers and snowshoe trail users.

 

The STA proudly supported the development of Elbow Trail through our Charitable Status Program. Through this program, fundraising assistance is available by allowing donations to be made to a project through the STA. Nearly $200,000 was raised for the Elbow Trail project.

 

Congratulations to the Friends of the Elbow Trail committee for its dedication in seeing this project through. Thanks to all the volunteers for your hard work and dedication. Thank you, as well, to the project donors. Through all your contributions, you have helped make this trail a reality.

      Hi Rob, unfortunately we do not currently have a map of the trail. I can certainly reach out to you when we have one.

    Went to Elbow today to walk the trail.

    There is no signage ANYWHERE to assist in either locating the trail or starting it at the Clubhouse. We had to ask at the restaurant where the trail began and ended. A complete and total absence of signage left my wife and I both frustrated and lost wandering around the marina parking lot looking for the trail’s lost thread!

    It’s definitely not ready for the public and certainly not as advertised with interpretation along the way.

    We gave up, left

      Hi Jim, I am sorry to hear that your hike was frustrating, I understand how feeling lost can be upseting. The trail is awaiting signage, and it’s on the way! We are expected to have our signs in approximately two weeks. Although, the trail is open, we are still missing some finishing touches.

      I do hope you try Elbow Trail again, as it is a very beautiful trail.
