Individual Trail

Thompson/Kamloops / Coquihalla

116 min driving from Downtown Kelowna

Disappear into the sub-alpine wilderness just south of the old Coquihalla toll-booth and climb to a stunning ascent via meadows for a view of the valley and Falls Lake. In the winter months, this trail is a popular destination for back-country skiing and snowshoeing. Huckleberries line the trail top in August!

1) After arriving at the Falls Lake parking lot, continue along the pipeline maintenance road across Falls Lake Creek.
2) Ignore the Falls Lake Trailhead to your left.
3) Continue across the cattleguard.
4) At about 400 meters since the parking lot, turn LEFT.
5) At about 1.4 km from the start of the trail, arrive at the Zoa Peak (with signage) trail on the left. Turn LEFT and hike up! Pay close attention to flagging tape, cairns, and trail usage. There are a few forks left/right that will take you to smaller views. None of them are more than 100 meters long.
6) Up until about 2 km, the trail is very steep. However, it then dramatically decreases in difficulty.
