Individual Trail

Central Okanagan / Crawford

21 min driving from Downtown Kelowna

This moderate hike takes you north of the trestles following a scenic route through Myra Canyon.

The trail takes about four to five hours and follows the perimeter of the park entailing several lookout points and views overlooking the canyon and Kelowna. The first 1.5 to 2 hours is a very steady but moderate ascent until the Bellevue Access fork. After which, the trail plateaus and begins its descent.

There is one creek crossing within the first hour of hiking, but then it is non-existent until roughly the 3.5 hour mark so bring a minimum of 2-3 litres on hotter days.

After the 2003 wildfires, there is noticeable open space, this makes things a little hotter during the summer due to the arid climate.

Hikers should stay on trail in order to help the regrowth of the area after the fires, bright wildflowers come into bloom during the spring and summer such as the New England, Yarrow and Fireweed. Wildlife is plentiful in the park.

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.
