Individual Trail

BC-Okanagan (Central) / South Myra

85 min driving from Downtown Kelowna

This gorgeous alpine hike extends into the forest south of Myra and west of Idabel Lake. It offers a short but challenging ascent, followed by a beautiful plateau with meadows, ponds, and ridge-line views of the valleys. ABSOLUTELY do not attempt this hike prior to mid-June as the snow will likely still be covering substantial portions of the trail!

  • Fantastic hike! A word of caution regarding getting to the trailhead; the final 7 km of road ("unmarked road" ) before the parking spot is best navigated with a vehicle with a bit of ground clearance as the road is a bit rough in spots.

  • Had an amazing day, well worth the effort. Just a quick note to re-affirm the last unmarked road is quite rough. We met a subaru attempting it whose owners wisely decided to walk the final couple of km into the trail head. They probably should have walked the whole road in. Big drops from runoff across the road, significant water in sections and many sizeable rocks strewn about. The road is also quite overgrown in the mid-section so pin-striping your vehicle isn't optional (just a warning for your paint, although most scratches will buff out with a decent waxing). Otherwise, the trail itself is in fantastic shape and is well worthwhile. We went over the last weekend of July and were treated to peak wild flower season. Stunning.

  • Just confirming that as of July 2020 the final few km's on the road are even worse. High clearance vehicles Only, and expect some scratches as previously stated. Awesome hike though!

  • Beautiful hike. I found it quite challenging though as I’m not in top shape. It took me 5 hours round trip to the top of Little White (from the trailhead). I found the descent required all my attention being tired at the end of it all. The road heading in is brutal, large rocks, ditches with water, and not pleasant. I had a Jeep which was fine but would not do it in a car. Beautiful rock features at the top, alpine flowers, nice wooded sections and alpine meadows. I think I’m going to try to hike the trestles and do the other route next time
