Free Group Hike

Sun, Aug 6, 2017 10:00 AM

The trail begins with a mild descent that crosses a creek and up into a mature forest. Pay close attention to cairns and ribbons that mark the trail as it can be easy to become disorientated as you will be crossing a large boulder field. Watch for climbers who may dislodge rocks while traversing along the rock wall. Only hike this trail when it is possible to see signs of usage on the ground, and visibility is clear. Once nearing the top, the trail begins to disperse, but the direction is clear for where to head to the summit.

While the trail itself is only 2.43 km one-way, we have added the 1.13 km for the walk from your car to the trailhead.

This trail is best done in July or August.

  • Yak Hike Carpooling

    After the last hike it was suggested we meet before leaving town to either more efficiently carpool and reduce the number of vehicles or so we can travel together to prevent people getting lost. I propose we meet behind the Tim Horton's/Wendy's (Lammle's side) in West Kelowna for 7:45AM Aug 6. Leave promptly 8AM. We can leave unneeded vehicles there safely for the day. If you need a ride to this meeting, let me know.
