The currently 3.5 km long return trail starts at the southern end of the trout pond in the Redberry Lake Regional Park. It takes hikers along the shore of Redberry Lake through aspen trees and groves, shrubs full with Buffalo berries, Chokecherries and Saskatoon berries.
The trail provides beautiful views onto the saline lake and it invites explorers to discover and playfully learn about nature and her secrets. Different stations along the trail make this self-guided hike unique. Visitors can see and learn about which birds and bats choose to make their home in certain nest boxes, which bugs will move into an Insect Hotel, and which creatures call a Rock Garden home. A QR Code to scan with a smart phone and leaflets are waiting for hikers who feel ambitious enough to build one of the nest boxes for their own back yard or to construct a miniature insect hotel to create a home for bees, ladybugs and other insects that will eat garden pests.
The establishment of the Redberry Lake Discovery Trail has been made possible through financial support from Mountain Equipment Co-operative (MEC) and EcoFriendly Sask, and through volunteers and land owners who see the value of projects like this trail. The challenge in the future will be to maintain this unique trail, especially when it comes to clearing the trail from grass and branches that grow back so quickly. If you want to get involved as volunteer or as sponsor please contact us and become a member of the Redberry Lake Trail Association.
