Individual Trail

Central Okanagan / Oyama

55 min driving from Downtown Kelowna

This short segment of High Rim Trail begins just past the 9 km marker en-route to Oyama Lake Resort. Heading left (north) up the trailhead, watch carefully for pink and black striped ribbon. The trail intersects logging roads a few times, and it is easy to get off track if you are not paying attention. On this trail you'll pass over a quaint handmade wood bridge (Cum Along Bridge), and proceed up to the Damer Lake Lookout (which is worth skipping). From here, continue onto stunning views of Vernon, Kal Lake, and Goose Lake at the Repeater Tower near km 46.

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.
