Black Knight Mountain
Central Okanagan / Black Mountain
25 min driving from Downtown Kelowna
WARNING: As of May 2015, the hike up the roadway has been closed to the public due to a hiker violating the private property and getting attacked by a bull! However, some hikers are reporting they can still access the park via an alternative entrance at the nearby golf course.
A panoramic view includes sights of ski hills Big White and Silver Star along with Terrace and Okanagan Mountain.
Approximately 11km, the hike relies on an old dirt and gravel road which leads to communication towers at the top of the mountain. The hike begins at Pyman Road and ends at an elevation of 1286m; prepare for cooler air, especially in the winter as snow levels can be high.
The first part of the trail is a gentle incline through scenic grasslands, take the first fork to the left and at the small pond take a left fork again. Vegetation consists of Fir, Cedar and Tamarack trees along the way.
