Salmon Arm: West Reinecker Creek Trail

Bringing houseboats and bikes together has a hint of the brilliance made by other classic combinations. Think chili and chocolate, kites and surfboards, or snakes and planes. The Shuswap Trail Alliance had a boat ready for us to motor out the next morning for the Reinecker Creek Trail. I slept on the top deck under the stars and woke up in the morning with a bird on my head.

The houseboat was a great way to access trails and spend more relaxing time on the water. Even though you can drive to these trails, Shuswap Lake is large and getting there would require a long drive. Get a houseboat because it’s basically a portable water park.

The Reinecker Creek trail was the most “East Coast” trail we rode. Heavily wooded with about a 10” off-camber tread, I felt comfortable but you could tell it threw off riders who were more at home on a wider track. This was the least aggressive trail we rode the whole trip, but I was excited to add it to the list of variety you can find in the interior.

My favorite post ride bath. A water slide and a huge lake.
