Keremeos Columns Provincial Park
BC-Okanagan (South) / Keremeos
8 min driving from Downtown Keremeos
This short day hike through sagebrush country leads you to formations created from volcanic activity that occurred around 30 million years ago.
The Keremeos Columns are made of basalt, the result of cooled lava and stand at a spectacular 30m high. They share the same geological phenomenon status as Northern Ireland's "Giant Causeway" and Wyoming's "Devil's Tower."
The trail does involve some elevation and ends in a steep incline, sturdy shoes are recommended. Although there is a Keremeos Park, the actual columns lie out of its boundaries on private property. Permission must be obtained from the landowners to get anywhere near the columns themselves.
A roundtrip to visit the Keremeos Columns takes between three to four hours for active adults and can be extremely hot during the summer, make sure to bring plenty of water and watch out for rattlesnakes among other wildlife such as deer.
