Individual Trail

BC-Okanagan (Central) / Black Mountain

24 min driving from Downtown Kelowna

This new route to the summit of Black (Knight) Mountain begins at the official trailhead on Swainson Rd. While only the lower part of the trail network is officially complete, it is likely this will be very close to the official route that will be in place when the park fully opens. It is unclear if this route crosses private property, as there are a couple signs mid-route, but word is that the RDCO purchased this land. Traverse at your own risk prior to the trail being officially opened.

Begin the journey meandering through the bald grassland hills at the base of the mountain before ascending via 4x4ing track to the true summit and cell tower. 270° panoramic views of Kelowna and Highway 33.
