About Us - Shuswap Trail Alliance

About UsThe Shuswap Trail Alliance is all about collaboration

We encourage all groups and individuals who love trails to work together.

By working collaboratively we can create efficiencies in trail building, marketing, maintenance, and planning. The Shuswap Trail Alliance successfully demonstrates how working together WORKS!

Working together on the Shuswap Trail Strategy. . .

The Shuswap Trail Strategy is the regional multi-stakeholder initiative working to establish the entire Shuswap watershed as a united destination trail center known for its active lifestyle, vibrant culture, natural beauty, and commitment to sustainable ecology. It acknowledges that well designed, signed, maintained, and promoted, a trail network is an asset of significant economic value.

– Well-designed, well-signed, well maintained, well promoted –

The Shuswap Trail Alliance is the organizational body (formed in 2005) through which local and regional leadership work together to develop and implement the Shuswap Trails Strategy as First Nations, stewardship, government, industry, business, and community stewardship organizations and individuals.

Check out our Mission and Goals.

Trail Stewardship

Shuswap Trail Alliance Stewards are individuals and groups in the community who build, monitor or maintain trails throughout the region. The Shuswap Trail Stewards Program is a work in progress building tools and resources to assist local trail stewards. Whether you just want to get out for a walk and help flick sticks, or help to organize full on volunteer trail stewardship events, there's a place for you! Check out the Volunteer page here.

Trail Design Standards

The Shuswap Trail Design Standards help all the partners throughout the region provide a consistent level of quality while creating a variety of options based on trail user's needs. They are based on Provincial standards and international best-practices, and include technical design standards, sign design style guidelines, environmental screening templates, and maintenance guidelines. Check out the full set of Trail Design Standards and Resources here.

Guided Trail Programs

Shuswap Trail Alliance sanctioned programs are organized by trail stewards, partner organizations, outdoor educators, and recreational trail groups. A set of leaders resources assist in ensuring appropriately planned, authorized, and guided field programs. Check them out on our Standards and Resources page here.
