Rose Valley: City on the Edge of Forever
BC-Okanagan (Central) / West Kelowna
13 min driving from Downtown Kelowna
Nestled on the west side of the Rose Valley Reservoir, this trail begins as a nice flat service road until it meets up with the lake. Meander up the goat trail to the left, and follow it all way through the dense forest to Sweet Street and begin your gruelling trek upwards. Pass under the most incredible giant rock archway and dawn your sights upon a panoramic view of the valley. Continuing further, the struggle worsens, until finally reaching the viewpoint at City on the Edge of Forever. This is easily the best viewpoint in the entire network of the Rose Valley trails and should absolutely not be missed. This spot is ideal for a picnic, sunrise or sunset.
Begin the descent down by keeping right at all of the forks, passing directly next to the incredible cliffs that line McDougall Rim on your right. Over halfway down, take note of a magnificent boulder split in half over time as you walk through it. Keep right at the Rocky Candy fork to connect with the home stretch!
