Cariboo Chilcotin Wheelchair Accessible Trails Network

The Cariboo Regional District has embraced the vision of creating a wheelchair accessible trails network in the Cariboo Chilcotin to increase outdoor wilderness recreation opportunities for people of all mobility levels. In 2008, the Cariboo Regional District worked with the Tatlayoko Community Association to complete a pilot wheelchair accessible trail in the Tatlayoko Lake Community Park and commissioned a region-wide study, which reviewed almost fifty sites, to identify locations for potential wheelchair accessible trails.

Through funding from the Towns for Tomorrow grant program, the BC Community Recreation Program, Northern Development Initiative Trust and the Cariboo Chilcotin Beetle Action Coalition, 18 wheelchair accessible trails have been completed:

  • 108/Sepa Lakes Accessible Trails
  • Lac La Hache Community Trail
  • Pioneer Heritage Trail at Roe Lake
  • 99 Mile Low Mobility Trail
  • Gavin Lakeshore Trail
  • Horsefly Wheelchair Accessible Salmon Habitat Viewing Trail
  • Churn Creek Gateway Trail
  • Tatlayoko Accessible Trail
  • Quesnel Forks Accessible Trail
  • Dugan Lake Accessible Trail
  • Cottonwood House Historic Site Accessible Trail Network
  • Sisters Creek Recreation Site Accessible Trail
  • Hallis Lake Low Mobility Trail
  • Barkerville Accessible Trail
  • Kosta’s Cove Accessible Trail
  • Claymine Low Mobility Trail
  • Stanley Cemetery Accessible Trail

The Cariboo Regional District hopes to continue this exciting initiative, working with partners, including local community groups, to research and choose additional sites for the development of wheelchair accessible trails.
