Access Issue: September 14, 2020 - Park Mostly Re-Opened to Climbing Details
Access Issue: Access to these crags is by the goodwill of the owner of the development at the end of Evergreen Drive. Please respect the directions below and keep your dogs on leash or we may lose access! Park at least 6 meters from a corner and 1.5 meters from driveways. Details

Description

Evergreen Drive provides access to two of the newest crags at Skaha: Foreplay and Canoe Cliffs. Easy approach and plenty of routes!

Getting There

At the moment you can still access Foreplay Cliffs and the Canoe Trail Crags from the powerline access road, but this could change once construction of the new development at the end of Evergreen starts and depending on the behaviour of our climbing community. Please do not enter the new housing development site - we have negotiated alternate accesses with the developer who has donatd 120 acres of land to the provincial park. Respect the new directions below or we may lose access.

Turn east from South Main Street and wind your way up Pineview Road until you are forced to turn right onto Evergreen Drive (about 1.5 km). Follow this for about 500 m until it ends in a cul-de-sac. Please be considerate and don't block driveways when you park, change into your shorts in public, or use neighbourhood lawns as picnic or bike repair sites. (Yes, these thoughtless acts all occurred on the Easter long weekend!)

Go through the yellow gate on the east side of the cul-de-sac and almost immediately turn right onto the powerline access road at a second yellow gate. From here, follow the directions to either Foreplay Cliffs or the Canoe Trail Crags.

If you are allergic to Poison Ivy be vigilant; there are lush growths of it along this trail.
