Club Minaki Trails
The Trails are maintained by the volunteers Club Minaki, a non profit group. All trail fees go back into trail maintenance and development. Please pay your trail fees if you are staying in a yurt. Trails are open year round for hiking, biking, and skiing. The Trails wind through the boreal forest and up onto the rocky ridges of the Boreal forest. The trails are not recommended for beginner bikers or x-country skiers the terrain is better suited to intermediate or advanced users.
Trail Report July 2020
A very wet June has made for some wet areas along the Trails. We have been out clearing the closer loops. Best to stay off the Grey owl for a while.
It may be August before it is mowed and dries up. Best to stay on the Ridge trails, Porcupine, Slick rock, and Purple trails are all it great shape for hiking or biking.
The Jackpine trail is no longer a summer loop. With our small trail crew we cannot maintain the crossing. It is a good there and back hike or bike though,
there is a picnic table overlooking the wetlands of Gun lake to catch some views and your breath.
Trail Report April 2020
The snow is slowly melting and the trails are getting better for hiking by the day. We had a very short ski season with groomed trails from Jan 20 - March 31.
Trails are still open during covid 19. Please get out and enjoy what the boreal forest has to offer.
There is currently a Fire ban on so please do not have any open fires along the trails, pack a cold snack and bring plenty of water.
Be cautious and aware that natural and man made hazards exists. Stay safe and please pay trail fees.
Trail Report June 2019
The Trails have seen some recent upgrades new signage artwork was commisioned by Alerry Lavitt and the signs were painted and installed by Club volunteers.
We have had a few quads riding on the Trails this year(bad news) and have added new signs at all of the entrances to the trails, to help educate the motorized crowd.
The Jackpine Trail is no longer a summer loop, the Lost causeway is no longer passable. The Jackpine is a great there and back hike or bike. There is a picnic table overlooking the marsh for you to catch your breath or have a snack. On the side that is shared with the blue fox there is another picnic area that makes a good destination.
