Trails in the Shuswap and getting better by day! Word is getting around too, and our trail systems are busier than ever.
Have a look at our new Rules of the Trail page for best practices on using our beloved trails sustainably and responsibly.
While Rubberhead is still covered in the white stuff, we thought we would post an update from Rec Sites and Trails BC regarding access to Rec Sites and Trails, which includes our beloved Rubberhead.
We also encourage Shuswap riders to avoid travelling to ride. It is tempting to look south or to Kamloops and see the clear trails, however this is not a time to travel. We are also seeing many warnings from trail groups in the region about trails that are thawing out, and right now riding on them could be damaging anyhow. Just think how sweet it will all be when this calms down!
The SCC echos the recommendation from RSTBC to exercise more caution than normal when on your bike.
Here is a quick recap from RSTBC:
All Recreation Sites are now Closed
Recreation Trails remain Open (with appropriate social distancing)
* Please read the news bulletin for more information about this or visit

RSTBC in partnership with the Shuswap Trails Alliance and Larch Hills Nordics are offering a Chainsaw Safety Course on May 23-24. This training is a requirement for anyone using a chainsaw under a RSTBC Partnership Agreement.
Send us an email if you would like to take the course.
Space in the course is limited and at this time there are just two two spots for SCC members. If there is enough demand however there could be a second course so please let us know if you are interested and we will try to arrange a second course.
