Trail Notes / Current Conditions:

June 6, 2018 - BC Parks has confirmed the Upper Herald’s trail that links to Reinecker is now OPEN for use by the public. The creek flow has receded and necessary repairs have been completed.   

June 6, 2018 - UPDATE: Margaret Falls Trails are STILL CLOSED (2019 target to reopen).  Spring run-off conditions and mudslides in the canyon have completely destroyed sections of this trail. Bridges have been torn from their footings and the river course has been re-routed in many sections. The trail and facilities will require an engineers assessment and estimate prior to any remedial work being completed, which will take place once current water levels begin to recede. There is a high likelihood that the trail will not be available for public use this season. Please be advised that we will post future updates as they become available.  

May 17, 2017 - If you use the upper loop trail that goes around the falls then hike with CAUTION and stay away from the banks as they are unstable.  Condition of the upper bridge is unkown.

Trail Description:

Views of Shuswap Lake, creek, waterfalls, forest, mosses. Lower trails are wheelchair accessible and appropriate for all ages.

15 km west of Salmon Arm on Hwy. 1, or 14 km east from Sorrento, turn east onto Sunnybrae-Canoe Point Rd and travel 12 km. Park in Herald Provincial Park’s day use area on the right/south side of the road, or at the Margaret Falls parking lot on the left/north side. Trails are along Shuswap Lake in the park and to the waterfall over bridges and through a magical old growth forest in the moss covered Reinecker Gorge. To reach the upper trails, go east of the Margaret Falls parking lot on Sunnybrae-Canoe Point Rd just past the gravel bank, watching for the trail stairs on the left. Or go in reverse, west of the parking lot and begin at the yellow gate. The upper trail crosses Reinecker Creek on a bridge at the top of the falls and returns back to the road. The new extended Reinecker Creek trail system starts at the post on the east side just before the bridge.
