About Us

The Village of Kaslo (pop. 1032) is nestled between the Selkirk and Purcell mountains in south-eastern BC and ideally situated beside beautiful Kootenay Lake.  The Kaslo Trailblazers Society was formed in 2005 by a local group of enthusiastic hikers dedicated to making our wilderness accessible to everyone. 

The Society now has over 200 members and 124 volunteers who have donated more than 5000 hours of labour towards trail-building. Our members include retired engineers, carpenters, forest reclamation specialists, bankers, and outdoor enthusiasts from all walks of life.

We are a registered society under the BC Society Act with an elected board of directors, constitution and bylaws.   Annual General Meetings are held in early spring.  We became a federally registered charity in 2008.
Revenue Canada Charitable Registration # 863051181 RR0001

The purpose of the Society is to build and maintain recreational trails in and around Kaslo.
