The South Canoe trails are managed by volunteer trail stewards through a local Advisory under the Shuswap Trail Alliance, in partnership with the City of Salmon Arm and Recreation Sites and Trails BC. The Advisory includes representation from local resident trail users (hikers/cyclists/ equestrian), Fish & Game Club members, the Shuswap Trail Alliance, and City staff. It guides maintenance, signage, and trail planning in the area, and acts as a meeting point for interest groups including collaborative planning with local forestry licensees.
