Join Shuswap Trail Alliance for late winter bigfoot walks

 The Shuswap, British Columbia – Sightings of noticeably large bigfoot prints have been showing up throughout the Shuswap this winter! Snow conditions, combined with the hard work of many throughout the region over the last four years to blaze and maintain trails for snowshoe use, have resulted in an unprecedented explosion of local snowshoeing. 

This Sunday afternoon, the Shuswap Trail Alliance invites you to join in a late winter snowshoe walk on one of the region’s iconic trails in winter – the Enderby Cliffs – or as the cliffs are known in the traditional Secwepemc language: the Tplaqin trail. 

“We’re walking to the first halfway lookout,” says Trail Alliance coordinator, Phil McIntyre-Paul, “but the valley views are breathtaking, and the forest is peaceful at this time of year.” The interpretive walk is jointly sponsored by BC Parks and the Shuswap Trail Alliance. Together they have been working with the Splatsin community to better protect the unique ecology, geology, and cultural importance of the cliffs which is an area of significant importance within the Secwepemc Nation territory. 

Participants need to be in good physical shape, comfortable walking an intermediate (more difficult) trail uphill on snowshoes. Bring snowshoes and poles, plus water and appropriate clothing. To rent snowshoes, contact Skookum Cycle and Ski or John’s Ski Shack. 

Meet at the Enderby Cliffs parking lot, this Sunday afternoon, February 24th, 1 pm – 4 pm (end of Brash Allan Road just east of Enderby). Check out www.shuswaptrails.com for a description of the Enderby Cliffs Trail and directions to the trailhead.
