Free Group Hike

Sun, Apr 7, 2019 11:00 AM

This is an adults only (19+) event!

This track, originally part of the route used by the Hudson Bay Company fur traders to transport furs, goods, and supplies from Fort Vancouver is a unique route that spans hundreds of Kilometres across the province.

However, this scenic walk takes hikers along a double-wide trail to a phenomenal viewpoint of Okanagan Lake, Rattlesnake Island, as well as hints of Peachland.

The trail has numerous forks, so we do recommend taking our GPS log on a mobile phone. However, there are ample signs of usage. Primarily follow signs reading "Seasonal Route" with a green circle inside a red ring. At the summit there is a large clearing with a sign clearly stating "Fur Brigade Trail." No vehicle traffic is permitted on these roads between January 1 and April 30th annually.

  • is the hike at 10am or 11am? here it says 11am, but facebook page said 10am?

    are some of you willing to carpool and/or car share, given there are so many going and limited parking space? if yes, i suggest that we can meet up at Orchard Plaza (springfield road) and go from there? if we leave around 10:15 - 10:20am time, any takers?
