Horses not permitted on Salmon River Parallel Trail

Due to concerns about safety and maintenance, the Columbia Shuswap Regional District (CSRD) will not be permitting horseback riders to use the Salmon River Parallel Trail when it is opened to the public. 

The decision was made to restrict the trail to non-motorized pedestrian and cycling use after engineers of the pedestrian bridge over the Salmon River advised the CSRD that the bridge was not designed to support the weight of horses.

ATV does damage to preparations for Silver Creek outdoor ice rink

Vandals damaged land preparations being put in place for an outdoor ice rink at the Silver Creek Community Park, resulting in higher costs and an inconvenience to the public. 

This project was being undertaken through a donation from Mountainside Earthworks, who are currently completing the new Salmon River Parallel Trail, with materials donated from local area aggregate suppliers.

Salmon River Parallel Trail Bridge off limits to horses

Horseback riders will not be able to use the new pedestrian bridge across the Salmon River due to bridge safety standards. 

Engineers have determined the bridge, which is part of the soon-to-be-completed Salmon River Parallel Trail, is not suitable for bringing horses across. This means equestrians in the area will have to cross the river on the vehicular bridge, which is under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure.
