Trail Description


40 min driving from Penticton,BC

The trail up Brent Mountain begins as a nice meandering forest-way with cute stream crossings. his is a hike that is ideal for hotter months, as it remains moderately cool all throughout the summer! The lush and cozy sub alpine trail will offer a variety of unique foliage (Yarrow, Buttercups, Indian Paintbrush, mushrooms) in early summer after the snow clears. Prepare for a hefty set of mosquitos and mud, but a distraction that is easily ignored as you approach the summit with its broad meadows littered with smooth stones. T

While the trail has numerous forks, the route to the top is clearly indicated by metal trail markers. The trail begins with a mild slope, and then mostly levels out for the next 2 km, and then the final ascent begins.

At the summit, reach an abandoned fire watch tower with surrounding panoramas of Apex Mountain, Summerland, and even hints of Kelowna on clearer days.
