Individual Trail

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.

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.
