5 Meter contours from raw LiDAR basemap.
PRODUCTION AND REVISIONS:Created in 2017 by David Bakker. Open Orienteering Mapper file created at 1:15000 but best printed at 1:10000 on a letter sized sheet.
About half the map likely to be logged in the next 2 years (August 2020) - flagging tape for planned areas is already out in the woods.
Provincial Crown land, except for the park at the trailhead which is CSRD. No permissions required for the trails at large, but lots of dirtbikers use the area. Best to contact Dirt Biking club about event dates to avoid heavy dirtbiking use: http://shuswapdirtriders.com/
If using the park area, talk to Ryan Nitchie at the the CSRD to get a free permit. Application form is here, and turn around time historically has been excellent.
Safety Bearing: West (Downhill) to fence - go further west to private farmland in valley bottom if very lost.
CELL PHONE COVERAGE:
- Telus/Koodoo/Public Mobile/Bell/Virgin - Good (Entire Map, except possibly small portion of upper alluvial fan)

UNIQUE SAFETY CONCERNS:
- Tall Cliffs around Creek on edge of map
- Bears (no evidence of bears on map (e.g. scat), but is potential bear habitat)
- Creek can be very full in spring - avoid course setting across creek except at bridges in spring

- Nearest Hospital: Shuswap General Hospital
