Free Group Hike

Sun, May 5, 2019 10:00 AM to Sun, May 5, 2019 12:30 PM

This is an adults only (19+) event!

This trail network offers spectacular views of both Skaha and Okanagan Lakes while perched overlooking Penticton. This vast trail network is ideal for mountain bikers, but can be disorientating to follow without a GPS log. This particular route is the best way to enjoy all of the highlights the trail has to offer. Starting off as a more or less flat meander through arrow-leaf balsam root meadows, ascend the south side of the mountain pas the cell tower heading north back to the parking lot.

  • I'd like to go but my Jeep is off the road, so could I hitch a ride with someone from Downtown Kelowna?

  • Could anyone give me a lift? I'm near downtown, near Pandosy and HWY 97.
    I could also find my way to an intersection with Transit :)
    I would be more than happy to split the costs of gas
