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.

  • I hiked this trail this past Saturday (June 2, 2018). The forestry road is indeed pretty rough for your typical car, but with some patience and tolerance for a few bumps & knocks in the undercarriage, it's passable. I got as far as 2k from the trailhead before snow on the road finally defeated me. It wasn't the first time snow defeated me on the day - I made it as far as the signpost before the final push to the summit before the snowpack got too deep for me to handle solo, in shorts & a t-shirt.

    For future reference, when the trail description says "Do not attempt prior to mid-June", don't just shrug it off. :)
