Individual Trail

BC-Okanagan (Central) / West Kelowna

15 min driving from Downtown Kelowna

A relaxing hike offering serene views of Okanagan Lake, Kalamoir Park provides a walkway through the Black Cottonwood forest over remnants of ancient volcanic disruptions.

Wildflowers are in bloom during the summer and include Arrowleaf Balsam Root and Sagebrush Mariposa Lilies, the Oregon Grape comes into bloom late August. Prickly Cactus Pear and Poison Ivy are present in the park - please watch where you tread. The trail is also great for bird watching.

Birds are prominent in the park for birdwatchers and sightings include that of the Great Horned Owl. Bears and other animals can be active in the area, in 2009 a cougar was found and shot after attacking a dog. Dogs are allowed on a leash and there is a dog park located near the shoreline.

  • There's a way to drive straight to parking area that I didn't know about. Anyway super nice place especially in summer and you can go swimming. Like maybe not for super outdoorsy people but for people that just want to see something pretty and different and not long there you go.
