Project promotes Lake trails

Close to 70 people came out to see the presentation, at which those responsible for the project talked about the final results.

Cavan Gates of the Christina Lake Community Gateway Association introduces the Christina Lake trails presentation and map launch on Feb. 26 at the welcome centre.

A 10-month project to map out the major trails at Christina Lake culminated with a presentation at the Christina Lake Welcome Centre Thursday.

Close to 70 people came out to see the presentation, at which those responsible for the project talked about the final results.

“We presented the results of a 10-month project to digitize and promote the trails at Christina Lake,” said Cavan Gates, manager of special projects for the Christina Gateway Community Development Association (CDA). “What we did was have a crew go out and collect GPS data, images and videos, and then they wrote down their experiences about the trail. We converted that into a website, blogs on the website, videos on the website, as well as hard copy maps and signs for the trails. So not only do you know the trails exist but you can figure out what you’re going to experience on the trail and how to get there.”

The results are expected to be posted online at and will be available towards the end of this month. The info will also be able to be accessed from

Presenting along with Gates were Cherisa Patton, Pierce LeClair, Kim Kinakin and Melissa Shim.

Gates said the project was an important one to not only inform people of what is available for trails at Christina Lake but also how to access them.

“We have fabulous trails here and visitors don’t know enough about them,” he said. “We want to really make it in your face: these are our trails, they’re awesome and this is how you can experience them!”
