Individual Trail

Shuswap/Revelstoke / Falkland

120 min driving from Kelowna, BC

This insanely challenging uphill gauntlet of a hike offers some of the most stunningly unparalleled vistas of Falkland. Walk through sub-alpine meadows, along dangerous but scenic bald cliff faces, and meander through dense forest.

While the trail is fairly well flagged as of 2017, way-finding by paying attention to signs of usage such as trail wear, log cuts, and cairns will be necessary. Additionally, the route down is so incredibly steep that other hikers have left ropes installed to aid in the descent.

The trail is best done as a loop, which will mean road-walking at the end for 1.3 km back to the first trailhead.

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.
