Knox: Kathleen Lake and Summit
BC-Okanagan (Central) / Downtown Kelowna
8 min driving from Downtown Kelowna
One of Knox Mountain's lesser-known pathways, this trail leads you to the serene water basin that is Kathleen Lake.
To reach the lake, follow the path behind the gate located between the first (Crown) and top (Apex) lookouts (about 1.12 km from Crown Lookout on the right). It takes you on a loop around the lake where several plants and animals such as deer, coyote, cougar and bear habituate.
Hikers are advised to stick to the pathway as the area is recovering from heavy off-road use. This trail is often shared by cyclists.

1) Drive up the main Knox Mountain Road, or hike up depending on season or day when the gate is closed to the first lookout (Crown Lookout)
2) Continue walking up Knox Mountain Road for another 1.12 km until you see a gate on your right with a Kathleen Lake sign.
3) Walk a short distance down the trail until you see the lake. There is signage for the Kathleen Lake trail which completely encircles the lake, but there is also the Glenmore Ridge trail on the east side of the lake which leads to the true summit of Knox Mountain. The Glenmore Rigde trail has a couple dozen large and elaborate inukshuks on it.
