Trail Description


50 min driving from Downtown Kelowna

Nestled outbound from busy city life, on the other side of the lake from Sparkling Hill Resort and about 11 km north of Fintry, enjoy the serenity of this breathtaking hike.

As your feet trek across the moss-laden forest floor, allow your senses to embark on a journey of purity as you engulf yourself in fresh mountain air, and the smells of new growth.

As your breath calms, and your heart rate lessens in this natural sanctuary, your peacefulness is abruptly challenged with an incredibly enticing uphill gauntlet.

The double wide path quickly narrows into a meandering single track with the occasional natural obstacle. Halfway up, make a choice at the large rock cairn to either trek right or left to reach the summit to complete the loop.

South-facing vistas of Okanagan Lake and mountain ranges to the west adorn the skyline as you perch yourself on one of many rocky mountain ledges.
