      Upper Trail System (Open to Shared Hike/Bike):
      The Upper Trail System encompasses all of the trails north of the Squilax-Anglemont Rd. These trails offer an impressive array of human and natural history, scenic beauty, and distinctive trail structures. PACKER: Traverses attractive, dry forest above the river along an old horse packer’s trails for most of its length. Park on Squilax-Anglemont Rd just east of the Adams River Bridge. ADAMS: The trail starts out as an old road, and turns into a trail at the canyon area, following the Adams River for the most part, until it ends at Gold Creek. The trail is linked with the Packer Trail at the power line, providing a loop back to the old road. The canyon, and its pools are a favourite area on this trail for anglers, and picnickers. It is also a good place to view rafters, and kayakers as they test their skills through the canyon section of the river. Below the canyon is a large pool with a sandy beach. Park on the Squilax-Anglemont Rd, just east of the Adams River Bridge.

      Lower Trail System (Hike Only):
      The Lower Trail System encompasses all the trails south of the Squilax-Anglemont Rd and Bridge. It provides access to the viewing areas during the October salmon runs. FOREST: meanders for 1.5km from the main parking lot through the forest to the river mouth. Return along the river via the Cottonwoods Trail. A section of the trail connects the parking lot to the overflow parking lot and the Roderick Haig-Brown Dedication Plaque. COTTONWOODS: Follows the east bank of the river for approx. 3.5km, linking the river mouth with the main parking lot and the overflow parking lot with the Adams River bridge. This trail offers superb views of spawning salmon.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
      AKA: North Shuswap
