Candle Creek Nordic Ski Trails

Area Description

The Candle Creek Nordic Ski Trails are located within Wells Gray Provincial Park. These trails, and others in the area, are maintained by the local Wells Gray Outdoor Club. This system is comprised of approximately 35 km of trails that pass through the woodlands to the northwest of Clearwater. They are regularly groomed and track-set. The club has recently completed a new warming cabin just above the parking-lot, which is open for the use of members and visitors throughout the season.


Follow Highway 5, about 1 km northeast of the Wells Gray Info Centre. Turn left onto Candle Creek Road. Follow this up for roughly 2 km, then turn right on Barber Road. The parking lot is at the end of this road.

Year Round Fun

The Candle Creek mountain bike trails are now open in the summer! In the winter, most of the trails are set with their state-of-the-art PistenBully 100. They’ve added a large snowmobile to assist in track setting. Look forward to some great skiing.

There is a $10 fee (honour system) located box at the trail head.
