About WATS

WATS (Wells and Area Trails Society) is a non-profit, volunteer-run society that works to develop, maintain and improve the non-motorized trails in the Wells, BC area.  We encourage all forms of non-motorized recreation including hiking, biking, skiing and snowshoeing. We don’t charge trail fees! We ask that you pack out what you pack in, and please pick up after your pooch. Let us know if there is fresh blow down that needs clearing, or better yet, come help us! Please support trail maintenance and grooming by becoming a WATS member and / or making a donation. As a WATS member, you will receive information about our special events and an invitation to our AGM in March each year. By making an additional donation to WATS, you are helping us to make improvements to our trail network.
