Dec. 10/2017: the first batch of Sicamous Greenway signs are up! Watch for more to come. 

Trail Description:

The District of Sicamous has been busy activating their greenway trail sign program with help from the Shuswap Trail Alliance. Over 100 new greenway signs went up in 2017 exposing what was the Shuswap's best kept trail system secret. Did you know the entire town of Sicamous can function as a greenway trail system worthy of exploration?

You can explore separated parallel trails out to Old Town Bay, walk into the Eagle River estuary, walk the beach back over the foot bridge to the wharf park, follow designated walk/bike routes through town, stroll the walkway along the narrows to catch lunch at Moose Mulligans, wheel your kayak down to the Kappel St boat launch or Poage Ave hand launch, travel south to climb up Bayview and over to Sicamous Creek falls, mountain bike the 10 km Lizard backroad forestry loop over to the Owlhead Snowmobile Kiosk, (don't forget to stop in at D Dutchman dairy for ice-cream), then link back through walk/bike routes and greenway connectors to Finlayson Parks trails and exercise stations, stroll the 1 km greenway trail in the forest down the west side of Hwy 97, and of course a quick dash accross the narrows bridge links you into the Sicamous Switchbacks trail, Top-O-the-Sic, Hyde Mountain Lookout, Larch Hills Traverse, and the Old Sicamous Highway trail along the lake.

If that sounds too good to be true, don't forget the Sicamous-to-Armstrong Rail Trail (coming very soon!). Go Sicamous :-)! 

Special thanks to the District of Sicamous Council and staff, the Sicamous and Area Chamber of Commerce (who really launched their trail system 20 years ago), and the Shuswap Trail Alliance and many volunteers who continue to contribute to the growing greenway trails.

Maps: We're still working on the final greenway maps, but to help get you going, here are a few pdfs of the new 6x6 sign maps:
