Friends of the Elbow Trail

The Elbow Trail 

 A group Elbow residents, business owners and vacationers have come together to build a public trail along the shoreline of Lake Diefenbaker. Walk, jog, or bike, but definitely don't miss exploring the shoreline via the trail!


 

 

The Mistaseni Cairn

 A great place for a stop along the Elbow Trail or a lookout over the lake. Come check out a little piece of the local indigenous and settler history. 


 

 

Lakeside Marina 

Lakeside Marina is a great place to launch and/or moore your boat. Stop by for the iconic #elbowsask picture overlooking the marina in July when it is full of majestic saleboats, cabin cruisers, and home to the Wendebee II.


 

Danielson Provincial Park

Danielson Provincial Park is the perfect place to enjoy summer. Situated on Lake Diefenbaker, the sandy beaches, excellent fishing opportunities and large campsites provide a variety of opportunities to fill the days with outdoor adventures. Hike the Trans Canada Trail, or learn more about one of the world's largest earth-filled dams by visiting the Gardiner Dam Visitor Centre.
