Landowner Rights & Trail User Responsibilities

The Waskahegan Trail is a unique resource that exists only because of the generosity of landowners. Before you set foot on the trail:

  1. Know the landowner rights and the trail user responsibilities.
  2. Check the trail conditions

Fall Colour Walk to Gwynne Ski Hill

Fourteen people came out to hike the trail outside Gwynne to the ski hill. The skies were slightly overcast and the weather was mild. It was a perfect day for enjoying the fall colours.

We noticed everywhere that while the leaves had turned to brilliant golds and red, the trees were not yet letting them drop.

A herd of llamas approached the fence as soon they saw us coming.

We are not always this lucky to see the llamas!

The total hike was just over 7 km. Thanks to John S. for leading the hike, to trail maintenance for clearing the trail–especially through the tall grasses up and down slopes. Thanks also to the landowners for their continued permission. You can see more photos on Flickr.

South Saunders Lake hike

Nine people came out to hike the 8+ kilometer hike along South Saunders Lake.

At the outset we were greeted by a herd of curious cattle. In the distance we saw an eagle circling. It was being chased by crows.

Looking down, we nearly stepped on a couple of “very nice mice with pretty ears and faces” as the rhyme says.

At the end of the hike, we enjoyed more of Sherry’s apples, this time in the form of an apple cake.

Thanks to everyone who came out to hike, to trail maintenance for their outstanding work on maintaining this trail, and to the landowners for their continuing permission. You can find more photos on Flickr.
