Individual Trail

South Okanagan / Downtown OK Falls

1 min driving from Downtown OK Falls

Okanagan Falls was named after its small twin waterfalls. Although they are no longer heavily cascading due to the flood control dam installed in the 1950s, the gentle rapids are still viewable at the Southern end of Skaha Lake.

On the West Side of the Okanagan River, you can follow a trail through the campground and continue out towards the park boundary. Along this trail lookout for birds, wildflowers, plants and wildlife. Animals spotted frequently include bighorn sheep, elk, bats, cougar, moose and bears.

Several fishing opportunities await for those interested, an interpretative sign create by the Okanagan National Fisheries Commission with information regarding this can be found by the campground.

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.
