Stephens Coyote Ridge: Viewpoint Trail


17 min from Downtown Kelowna
2347 Werger Rd, Kelowna, BC
This particular trail leads you to a perch overlooking the new Hidden Lake development area and offers one of the best views overlooking Glenmore. After parking in the dog park parking lot, head up the hill. At the first major intersection where the trail forces you to go left or right, keep right and immediately turn left to go slightly down and then up a large hill. At the top of the hill, keep left. Follow the trail over fallen trees. Stay straight at the three-way intersection with the yellow No Tresspassing sign. Then, at the next major 4-way intersection, go straight through for the Viewpoint. Coming back along that same trail to that intersection on return, turn at your first right to come down to the pond. Follow this all way the down to the first intersection.

Glenwest Properties, despite the "No Trespassing" signs permits hikers on the dirt pathways at their own risk. Absolutely no motorized vehicles. However, as a courtesy please call Glenwest Properties at (250) 862-1150 for permission. Use the GPS map to find your way through this trail, if possible. There are a number of forks, many of which simply lead out of the park.

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.

    This trail is no longer passable. Near the 'no trespassing' sign, trees have been placed deliberately to block the path (see pictures).

    Yes, it is. I've called Wilden properties in the past before and they told me they don't mind hikers.

    Hi Josh. Thanks for your reply. Curious to get your take on the two pictures I posted. With the configuration of the trees, we clearly felt like someone was sending a message to stay out. Love to be able to do this hike!
