      SOUTH CANOE is the most popular trail network in the shuswap, being close to town it makes for a great after work rip. This multi use trail network is annual Salty Dog 6 hour Enduro mountain bike race. It is also the western trailhead to the Larch Hills Traverse. A network of largely dual directional trails which can be linked up in a variety of ways.

      TRAIL STEWARDSHIP: Did You Know? The South Canoe Trails are managed by volunteer stewards in partnership with the City of Salmon Arm and Recreation Sites and Trails BC. Under a Management Plan and Partnership Agreement with both the City and the Province, the Shuswap Trail Alliance supports a local Stewardship Advisory to guide maintenance, signage, and trail planning in the area, and act as a meeting point for interest groups.

      March 2020: Fir Beetle Management, South Canoe Trails, Watch For Trail Closures - The City Of Salmon Arm is working with Silvatech Consulting Ltd to manage the Fir Beetle in the Malibu area by salvaging the affected trees. This work will limit the future spread of the beetle by removing the 2019 beetle brood that is currently over wintering in the Douglas-fir trees. Harvesting the infested stand will also help deal with this future fuel load.

      Harvesting work will begin early the week of March 2nd. Watch for daytime Trail Closures. The Shuswap Trail Alliance is working With Silvatech Consulting to ensure the trail impact is minimal. There will be some trail closures but these should be limited to three or four days
