Cycling Highlights in Salmon Arm
Look for a multitude of wildflowers and wild mushrooms that thrive in this moderate climate. Expect to see lots of wildlife: waterfowl and turtles in the wetlands, coyotes in the open, deer and maybe even a bear in the forest. Some 250 species of birds visit or live in the region, so keep an eye to the sky.
Outstanding lake and mountain views are also part of the package on nearly every trail.
