Individual Trail

BC-Okanagan (Central) / Black Mountain

19 min driving from Downtown Kelowna

This incredibly steep, but short, climb to the cell tower is a favourite lookout spot in Black Mountain for the setting sun over the city. With much better views than the neigboring official Black Mountain Viewpoint trail, it may not exist for long! As of May 2019 it is getting strangled by development on all sides.
