Mission Statement - About Us - Shuswap Trail Alliance

The Vision. . .

To foster a healthy, engaged community in the Shuswap Region – economic/environmental/social – through well designed, maintained, and promoted trails connecting people, culture, and landscape; and to do so through collaboration, stewardship, fiscal responsibility, and economic development. (Updated: January 2014)

And the Mission. . . 

THE PURPOSE OF THE SHUSWAP TRAIL ALLIANCE IS to develop, operate, maintain, and promote a network of non-motorized trails, waterway and hut-to-hut routes throughout the Shuswap watershed region in the Province of British Columbia for educational, recreational, economic, and environmental benefit to the public, and to do so collaboratively through community partnerships.

Shuswap Hut and Trail Alliance - Full Mission Statement and Strategic Goals

And our Shuswap Trails Hut-to-Hut Vision... 

(Here's one of the founding concepts that got the region motivated to work together. Its ambitious, but little by little the connections are being made) ... to create an internationally recognized land and marine trail system that provides an experience comparable to the Appalachian Trail in the United States or the Bruce Trail in Ontario. Characterized as an “Appalachian style” network of cross-country hiking, biking, ski, snowshoe, and equestrian trail routes – overnight facilities are envisioned that link existing accommodations, bed and breakfast operations, campgrounds, and resorts with a series of discrete backcountry wilderness cabins – creating opportunities for a point-to-point (or hut-to-hut) style outdoor travel experience immersed in the natural landscape of the Shuswap.
