Beginning at Little White Forestry Service Road in East Kelowna, this moderate coniferous forest trail gives you the chance to witness interesting geological formations and natural springs.

The 4km trail is part of KLO creek and offers narrative plaques describing the local flora, which include Douglas-fir, Lodgepole Pine, Western Larch and Western Red Cedars.

Although water below the surface is heated geo-thermally to over 100°C, the above ground springs are lukewarm at about 25°C and can be identified by orange-coloured, 10 metre-high tufa deposits that they have created. Tufa is a mineral formed when calcite crystallizes after water evaporation.

Angel Springs can be quite cool during springtime due to mountain runoff. It is suggested to visit during summer months.
