This gorgeous alpine hike extends into the forest south of Myra and west of Idabel Lake. It offers a short but challenging ascent, followed by a beautiful plateau with meadows, ponds, and ridge-line views of the valleys. ABSOLUTELY do not attempt this hike prior to mid-June as the snow will likely still be covering substantial portions of the trail!

  • In a normal year, this is one of the best hikes for Alpine escape. Last weekend in June is usually perfect. This is not a normal year. I would recommend this hike after a solid week of summer, say mid July. Do not take a car. 4x4 or rural SUV highly recommended.

  • As the final section of roads are unlikely to be passable by low clearance vehicles, there is a car pool meet up at Willow Park Mall (corner of Highway 33 and Hollywood Road - IGA/McDonalds) being planned the morning of at 8:15am. If you have a high clearance vehicle with space, it would be appreciated if you would be willing to take others and meet at the location. If you do not have a vehicle that is suitable, come to the car pool meet up and we will try to find you a spot. As a rider, please bring around $10 cash to give to your driver as reimbursement for fuel costs (amounts may vary by agreements with your driver).

    Please visit the Hiking Addiction Kelowna Forum on Facebook, (search or follow the "Forum" link ^^above^^) to join in the discussion regarding the meet and its exact location and if you want to secure a ride before Monday morning.
