Trail Description

Coquihalla

120 min driving from Downtown Kelowna

An incredible view of the Cascades to the Coastal Mountains along a sub-alpine ridgeway. On clear days, views of Mount Baker are even visible. After about an hour of intense uphill, you will reach a much easier (but still ascending) array of meadows, which will turn into a boulder fields and two scrambles. The initial section of the trail features natural blueberries in the summer.

After hitting a major trail fork where your current trail intersects the ridgeline of Needle's ridge perpendicularly, you are able to turn LEFT instead of right to follow a secondary trail to "Small Lake."

Due to large amounts of snow in the spring, summer, and fall, we recommend only doing this trail between June 1st and the end of September. Prepare for dramatically colder temperatures and high winds near the top.
