Individual Trail

North Okanagan / Coldstream/Lumby

30 min driving from Downtown Vernon

Bluenose is a stunning heavily forested hike with a few great clearings of the valley between Coldstream and Lumby. The hike itself is well marked and easy to follow. Prepare for a very steady uphill ascent, with a brief detour for a Viewpoint in the first 20-30 minutes off to the left. Return back to the trail and continue eastward to reach the apex of Bluenose Mountain.

GPS Notes
Most often when viewing our maps, trails marked in Green or Blue have been human-verified by our volunteers. A route in purple indicates an overgrown trail or a bushwhack. Otherwise, the tracks may have been satellite traced or imported from third party sources. While we strongly believe our GPS are accurate, please be aware that no logging system is perfect and to be aware of potential errors.
