Individual Trail

BC-Okanagan (Central) / Kettle Valley

30 min driving from Downtown Kelowna

An obstacle course of trees lies along this trail through the remnants of the Okanagan Mountain Park wildfire in 2003.

Be prepared to cross streams, traverse though grasslands and enjoy stunning sights of the Okanagan valley.

Due to the open space created by fallen trees, this area is subjected to high temperatures in the summer, bring plenty of water. In the Spring, small streams run across the trail, hiking shoes with good grip are recommended.

Be sure to do a tick check when you leave, the density of fallen trees is a habitat for the arachnids
