The Shuswap, North Okanagan, Splatsin

The public is invited to attend a Grand Opening event to celebrate the recent completion of the Enderby-Splatsin pilot section of the Shuswap North Okanagan Rail Trail project. This two-kilometre stretch of trail marks the first fully constructed phase of the project, bringing the vision of this remarkable recreational pathway closer to reality.

Representatives from the Splatsin te Secwépemc, the Columbia Shuswap Regional District, and the Regional District of North Okanagan will be on site to help celebrate the opening of the first phase of a 50-kilometre, non-motorized greenway trail for walking and cycling along the former rail corridor between the communities of Sicamous and Armstrong.

When: May 10, 2024, 10AM – 12PM

Where: Rail trail parking lot, near Belvidere Park and Cliff Avenue, Enderby

The pilot trail section will act as an example for future sections of the planned regional trail and will serve as a standalone link between Enderby and Splatsin. The next phase of the rail trail is currently being constructed near Sicamous, BC.

Funding for the construction of different portions of this pilot section was made possible through the generous contributions of the Government of Canada and the Province of British Columbia.
