Skaha Bluffs are a popular rock climbing destination. While it's not intended as a hiking route, there are a number of trails to admire the canyon. The entire park perimeter will run about 2.5 hours to loop through, but it is very much a create-your-own-adventure style trek.

GPS Notes
We have often color-coded our GPX tracks. While it is not always the case, we have tried to use the following convention on our newer maps:

Green/Blue: human-verified by our volunteers.
Purple: overgrown trail, bushwhack, or on private property.
Red: default color or not reality-checked
Yellow: Road
Other Colors: May have been satellite traced or imported from third party sources.

While we strongly believe our GPS are accurate, please be aware that no logging system is perfect and to be aware of potential errors. Use at your own risk.
