High Rim Trail: Oyama Entrance to Repeater Tower
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.
