Knox: Grainger Summit Loop
Central Okanagan / Glenmore
9 min driving from Downtown Kelowna
This trail is lesser known and has a very complex network of pathways that all intersect offering a "create your own" hike feeling. Stunning views of Northern Glenmore (notably Wilden) and downtown. The ascent to the apex of the trail follows a moderately steep and narrow deer trail leading to a communal fire pit which is only two minutes walk from the end viewpoint. The trek down descends the opposing side of the mountain at an incredible slope! Definitely prepare to slide down on your shoes a bit.
