To Roderick Haig Park for this is a fascinating place to visit at any time of year, but particularly in early October during the run of the Adams River sockeye salmon. The Adams River has one of the largest Sockeye salmon runs in North America. Every fourth year is a “dominant” salmon run, with millions of fish to be seen (2018 - 22 will be dominant runs). The Adams River Salmon Society coordinate the celebration known as the “Salute to the Sockeye” during the dominant years. The following years are “sub-dominant” runs of sockeye: 2016, 2017, 2019, 2020, 2021. These years often have substantial returns of sockeye and offer excellent viewing opportunities. During the last three weeks of October in years where there isn’t a “dominant” or “subdominant” return, a small number of salmon begin their spawning cycle. The best place to view spawning salmon will be on the new viewing platform approximately 300m  (984.3 ') west of the the parking lot. The 26 km (16.15miles) trail system is used for for hiking and mountain biking in summer and cross country skiing and snowshoeing in winter. Huihill Creek was recently added to Roderick Haig-Brown Provincial Park as a result of recommendations made in the Kamloops Land and Resources Management Plan and is now officially a portion of Roderick Haig-Brown Park.
