Roderick Haig-Brown Provincial Park (Kelly Funk)
Part 1
Roderick Haig-Brown Provincial Park

49.84 km - about 0 hours 35 min

Take the Squilax-Anglemont Road turnoff as you head up Highway 1 toward Sorrento to Roderick Haig-Brown Provincial Park. The park is home to the Adams River Sockeye Salmon Run, one of the largest in North America. In October, you can view the returning salmon (millions during dominant years). The park is also home to a 26 km (16 mi) trail system that is ideal for hiking or mountain biking in the summer.

Shuswap Lake (Allen Jones)
Part 2
Shuswap Lake

42.56 km - about 0 hours 43 min

Anchoring the Shuswap is approximately 600 km (373 mi) of flawless shoreline around Shuswap Lake. Consisting of four arms, the lake looks like the letter “H” and provides pristine waterways for outdoor recreation. Houseboating is a quintessential Shuswap experience, allowing unparalleled freedom on the warm lake.

Head northeast on Highway 1 toward Sorrento before curving around the lake down into Salmon Arm (home to the Roots & Blues Festival). Take a scenic sunset walk along the Salmon Arm Wharf, the longest inland wooden curved wharf in Canada, for unrivaled views of the bird sanctuary and ecological reserve. If you have time, stroll through Herald Provincial Park to Margaret Falls for an enchanted forest experience.
