      These trails have some of the newest additions to Salmon Arm’s growing greenway network. Park Hill offers users a variety of single track trail loops for hikers, mountain bikers, and snowshoers on both the west and east side of Park Hill Road above Canoe Beach, and link to the Canoe Beach Paddle Centre and boat launch.

      Salmon Arm’s growing greenway network grew a little more thanks to a grant from the Salmon Arm Savings and Credit Union several years ago along with the epic volunteer efforts of the Salmon Arm Greenway Volunteer committee, Canoe trail stewards, and the City of Salmon Arm. Check out new sections recently added to the east trails above the Canoe ball diamonds, including awesome new sections of stairs thanks to star volunteer trail steward, Brian Browning. And don't miss the Holmes (Centre) trail added to the west trails in 2015. The flowy corkscrew trail weaves back and forth to create a fun figure-eight option linked to the Outer Loop and Sansoms Trail for hikers and mountain bikers. And stair bypass routes on the east trails allow mountain bikers to link both east and west trails into a longer loop ride.

      In the winter, bring your snowshoes or ice cleats, and once everythings packed down these make great fat-tire mountain bike loops.

      PARK HILL WEST TRAILS: There are three access points. One is located in the overflow parking lot for Canoe Beach, at the bottom of Park Hill Rd. The other is halfway up Park Hill Rd. The third is to start right at the Canoe Beach parking lot. A trail leading up to the overflow parking lot starts on the south side of Canoe Beach Road. From the overflow parking lot, the access trail at the northeast links into a series of stacked loop trails. Take the outer perimeter trail for a full tour of the forest, or mix it up by combining smaller loops using the connecting trails. Viewpoints can be found along the ridgeline on the far northwest outer loop. In the summer, combine your trip with a stop in at Canoe Beach for a swim and picnic, a visit to the concession, or a visit to the Shuswap Paddle Centre.

      PARK HILL EAST TRAILS: An additional 1.5+ km of trails. A network of rustic trails built by local residents has been continually upgraded in recent years. Look for new stairs from the 2014 and 2015 season, and a mountain bike friendly connection to the upper blue pump house on Park Hill Road. Starting at the Overflow Parking Lot, an extended loop can be connected using the east trails up through the forest to the Pump House and then crossing over to the West Trail System before looping back down to the parking lot.
      AKA: Canoe
      Access Info:
      From Hwy 1 go east toward Canoe and turn left just past the golf course. Turn left on Canoe Beach road and turn left past the Ball Park on Park Hill Rd. First right is the lower parking lot.
