Map: Park Hill
The first of a beginner friendly fall training series in Salmon Arm! We will meet at the Park Hill parking lot just off Park Hill Road above Canoe Beach. Three different traditional point to point courses will be offered to suit all ages and abilities. Please sign up on this page so we know to print a map for you. A limited number of excess maps will be printed, but you will not be guaranteed a map if you do not sign up online.
Park Hill has a beautiful trail system of wide trails with a mix of thick and open forest. There are lots of contours and some of the most contour detail in the Salmon Arm area. Wear light pants and a long sleeve shirt to avoid getting scratched.
6:00 - Registration opens and firsts starts
6:45 - Last Start
7:30 - Courses Close, all participants must report to the finish
Roads: There is one road that crosses through the middle of the map. Please ensure that the road is clear before you cross it.
Wasp Nests: There are some wasp nests present in Park Hill. If you here a buzz, do not stick around!
