Trail Notes / Current Conditions:

Please stay on the marked trail! Help protect the ecosystem, respect the cultural importance of this site to local first nations, and take care of your own safety. Short-cut trails have been decomissioned intentionally by BC Parks to re-stabilize collapsing banks, redirect water run-off away from the trail, and rehabilitate native species of flora and fauna that make this area special. Please respect this work by enjoying the Enderby Cliffs hike from the marked Tplaqin trail only. Thank you!

Trail Description:

The Splatsin, BC Parks, and the Shuswap Trail Alliance have worked together to improve access to this iconic trail, reducing erosion issues and protecting an important Secwepemc First Nations sacred area. This trail offers views high above the town of Enderby with a unique perspective of the Shuswap and the North Okanagan. Hikers atop the cliffs can watch the soaring birds including Turkey Vultures and Eagles play on the updrafts created by the steep rock face and take a step back in time to the Tertiary age when the cliffs were formed.

Please stay to the new trail to protect this sensitive ecosystem and avoid damaging erosion cutoffs.
