Our History

We were formed on January 25, 2005 and became a federally registered charity on January 1, 2008.

The first goal was to establish a trail network along the Kaslo River with two main bridges linking the North side of the river with the South side of the river and to link up to the True Blue Mountain Recreational Area (TBM) located adjacent to the airport.

Once that is established the focus will shift to develop the TBM recreational area and to maintain the trail system already there. The Kaslo Trailblazers are not restricted to working within the Village limits. The development of trails in the surrounding areas are also in the agenda for the future.

Our Community

Kaslo is a picturesque little village with a population of 1032. The townsite is the delta of the Kaslo River which flows into Kootenay Lake. With tree-lined avenues and heritage houses at every turn, it is the quintessential small town of everyone's imagination. (from the Kaslo & Area Visitors' Guide, courtesy of Pennywise)
