South Okanagan / Summerland
47 min driving from Downtown Kelowna
Take either the easy paved road for 2.75 km or steeper dirt path for 1.5 km to reach the summit for a beautiful panoramic view of Summerland (just 15 minutes outside of Penticton). It is possible to cut out most of the hike by parking at the upper parking lot (warning: gates close at dusk!), and simply hike the final 0.5 km to the summit.
After parking at the mailboxes, continue up the dirt path. Walk through the "driveway-looking" gate to your left to enter the park. In a couple hundred meters, turn onto the dirt path to your right to follow the steeper ad shorter trail to the top. Alternatively, stay on the road to the top.
