Our Club



The Four Seasons Recreational Club was formed in January of 1990. Our original goal was to create a trail system between area businesses, and which would connect to Douglas County Trail #41. Since then, we have dedicated ourselves to keeping those trail systems in top condition. We work closely with the Wascott Tourism and Development Association to attract recreational traffic and keep our trails safe. In 2005, we started holding ATV Safety classes at least once a year for area children and hope to add Snowmobile Safety classes in the near future. All money left at the end of the grooming season and after our equipment maintenance is paid, is dedicated to the improvement of the Wascott Ball Park, where our club building has been built . Each year, we donate generously to many good causes in our area.

Our trail (3) is approximately 8 miles long, connects at least 10 local businesses, and then joins the county trail at both ends. The trail is only partially funded, and is maintained by our club.

Another goal of our club has been to assist in the growth and development of the Wascott Ball Park.

We are fortunate to have a large group of members who help with this event, and we would like to take this opportunity to thank them for all their hard work.
