DUCK LAKE – EB’s TRAILS
The trails just 17km north of Duck Lake, Saskatchewan on Highway 11 offer a great day escape from the city. There are 52km of trails that intersect throughout the network. These trails are specifically designed for Nordic or Cross-country skiing and in the winter can only be used by skiers. If you don’t own a pair of ski’s there are many places that will rent you a pair for the day.
While this trail system is qualified within Central Saskatchewan, it looks nothing like the prairies of the south. Just on the edge of the boreal forest, it offers pituresque scenery of the forest only 60 minutes from Saskatoon.
