Hiking the Park Hill Trail System


What a beautiful spring day today!!!! We got out and celebrated the Easter Weekend by doing a little 2.5 km hike on the Park Hill Trail System on Shuswap Lake. We had plenty of sunshine and the temperature was just perfect. 

The loops that we walked were in great condition and things are just starting to green up. There was only one spot we ran into that was a bit muddy. This trail is great for families and hikers of most fitness levels. The Park Hill Trail is part of an extensive network of trails built and maintained by the Shuswap Trail Alliance.

Glad to be out again enjoying the trails. With most of the house renos behind us we are eager to do a lot more hiking and paddling this summer. We are sure to visit this trail often as it is a favorite of ours. Do you have a favorite trail in the area? Do you prefer to hike, bike or horseback ride the trails? Let me know in the comment section below.

  2. Glad to share Paul. There are some truly amazing trails in the area. Do you mainly mountain bike or do you hike as well? Have you had a chance to check out the Larch Hills Traverse (http://www.shuswaptrails.com/salmonarm.htm#traverse)? I hear it is an amazing ride.

    Hope we see you on the trails!
