For business or individuals

The Wells Gray Outdoors Club has developed a mountain biking and hiking trail network at Candle Creek for residents and visiting tourists.

We have over 20 km of completed trail. The planned completed network will be 30 km. This project aligns with the District of Clearwater’s Official Community Plan for trail system connectivity.

User survey conducted in 2016 indicated an established trail network would net $250,000 in annual tourism revenues to local community.

Funding for this trail network has been provided by:

  • Wells Gray Community Forest
  • Thompson-Nicola Regional District
  • Rec Sites and Trails BC
  • BC Rural Dividend Fund
  • Kamloops Blazers

In Partnership with:

  • Simpcw First Nations
  • District of Clearwater
  • Tourism Wells Gray
  • Clearwater Chamber of Commerce
  • Rec Sites and Trails BC


The Candle Creek trail system is user maintained – spring clean up of trails is completed by volunteers.

The trail network also requires annual brushing and weeding. This spring work is completed by paid crews with funding collected from sponsorships.
