Enderby Cliffs Provincial Park, NE of Enderby
On May 28, 2012, my wife, Wendy, and I hiked up the the 7 km long Enderby Cliffs Trail to the summit of the cliffs. The trail grades are generally easy, with only a few short sections of moderate grades. The best views of the Shuswap River valley, from Enderby to Grindrod, are from viewpoints at 2 km, 3 km and about 5-7 km from the trail head. At a moderate pace, it should take about 2.5 hours to reach summit. For us it took 3.5 hours because of the excellent photographic opportunities and chatting with other hikers. Be sure to reach the summit, as the views are exceptional, looking over the edges of sheer cliffs and into the valley, including views to SE Salmon Arm and Shuswap Lake.
Caribou Basin hike, north of Revelstoke
Below is a selection of photos taken on hikes with the Shuswap Outdoors Club in August 2009 in Caribou Basin, south of Goldstream River, west of Downie Peak and north of Revelstoke. Accessible by a 4x4 on a logging road with a short walk through timber, the basin opens up into a good variety of meadows, flowers, creeks, lakes and ridge walks that offer good views to distant mountains, the Downie Arm on Lake Revelstoke and occasional wildlife sightings.
