This is a new addition to the John Family Nature Conservatory in 2017 which begins on Lakeshore Drive. Follow the brand-new double-wide gravel trail all the way up to Cedar Mountain with two parking spot options. Phenomenal views of the city and a great spot to watch the sunset. At Cedar Mountain, watch climbers crawl the crags or scramble up an easier section for a stone fire pit and view of everything from West Kelowna to Black Mountain.

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.
