Enderby Cliffs Trail Description

The Enderby Cliffs Trail is a must-do, whether you’re an Okanagan local or a visitor seeking some outdoor adventure. Be sure to pack a lot of water and snacks for the top! You’ll definitely work up an appetite as the hike has a consistent incline and many switchbacks. There are also bears roaming the area, making it essential to bring bear spray along. While this hike is best done between April and October, it’s still possible to enjoy this trail in the winter, but crampons are essential if you do. We would advise against bringing young children on this hike due to the steep drop from the cliffs. Keep your dogs close, too.

You won’t regret climbing atop the cliffs and marvelling at the lush, verdant scenery cloaking the land below. Nothing beats the fantastic bright-blue Shuswap River snaking through the green valley. The Enderby Cliffs Trail is easy to follow, gets your heart rate up, and the views from the top are so worth it.

You’ll follow the Tplaqin Trail from start to finish, making this hike super straightforward and almost impossible to get lost on. Around the halfway mark en route to the top, you’ll encounter an excellent viewpoint, which local trail runners or younger families sometimes turn around on. But you’ll know you’ve reached the top when you’re standing atop the cliffs and can walk along a ridge. After spending some time at the top, turn around and head back the way you came.

Insider Hints

  • If you plan to do this hike in winter, bring crampons.

  • There are bears in the area, so pack bear spray.

  • Bring bug spray in the summer as the insects can be a nuisance in the Okanagan.
