Central Okanagan / Black Mountain

25 min driving from Downtown Kelowna

A dacite-composed volcanic land-form, Layer Cake Hill is truly a unique gem in Kelowna offering a layering style seldom seen. After recent advances, scientists now describe this particular geological formation as occurring from the different ways rock in a single volcanic flow shrinks as it cools. The "Pinnacle" hoodoo stands nearby and was formed from the same flow.

GPS Notes
Most often when viewing our maps, trails marked in Green or Blue have been human-verified by our volunteers. A route in purple indicates an overgrown trail or a bushwhack. Otherwise, the tracks 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.
