Individual Trail

Central Okanagan / Downtown Kelowna

6 min driving from Downtown Kelowna

The Paul's Tomb trail does indeed lead to the tomb of the Paul family. Rembler Paul was one of Kelowna's pioneers and quite the eccentric, his decision to build a large tomb for his family in the early 1900s can be viewed once you near the bottom of this 2km hike.

The path can be accessed from two places, at the end of Poplar Point Drive, or more frequently from the car park at the first lookout on Knox Mountain. The second option includes a bit of a steep decline down the gravel path.

Although the tomb is an interesting aspect, the beach at the bottom is the real treat along with a secluded swimming hole and beautiful views of the lake.

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.
