Individual Trail

BC-Okanagan (South) / Penticton

60 min driving from Downtown Kelowna

This trail network offers spectacular views of both Skaha and Okanagan Lakes while perched overlooking Penticton. This vast trail network is ideal for mountain bikers, but can be disorientating to follow without a GPS log. This particular route is the best way to enjoy all of the highlights the trail has to offer. Starting off as a more or less flat meander through arrow-leaf balsam root meadows, ascend the south side of the mountain pas the cell tower heading north back to the parking lot.
