Individual Trail

South Okanagan / Apex

40 min driving from Penticton,BC

The trail up Brent Mountain begins as a nice meandering forest-way with cute stream crossings. his is a hike that is ideal for hotter months, as it remains moderately cool all throughout the summer! The lush and cozy sub alpine trail will offer a variety of unique foliage (Yarrow, Buttercups, Indian Paintbrush, mushrooms) in early summer after the snow clears. Prepare for a hefty set of mosquitos and mud, but a distraction that is easily ignored as you approach the summit with its broad meadows littered with smooth stones. T

While the trail has numerous forks, the route to the top is clearly indicated by metal trail markers. The trail begins with a mild slope, and then mostly levels out for the next 2 km, and then the final ascent begins.

At the summit, reach an abandoned fire watch tower with surrounding panoramas of Apex Mountain, Summerland, and even hints of Kelowna on clearer days.

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.
