Individual Trail

Central Okanagan / Peachland

30 min driving from Downtown Kelowna

This track, originally part of the route used by the Hudson Bay Company fur traders to transport furs, goods, and supplies from Fort Vancouver is a unique route that spans hundreds of Kilometres across the province.

However, this scenic walk takes hikers along a double-wide trail to a phenomenal viewpoint of Okanagan Lake, Rattlesnake Island, as well as hints of Peachland.

The trail has numerous forks, so we do recommend taking our GPS log on a mobile phone. However, there are ample signs of usage. Primarily follow signs reading "Seasonal Route" with a green circle inside a red ring. At the summit there is a large clearing with a sign clearly stating "Fur Brigade Trail."

  • Did this April 14, 2018, 13C and overcast skies. Only found some patches of snow closer to the top, but they were off the track and easily avoidable. Bring some good shoes, as there are some little streams that cross the track, and muddy spots. Some flat spots, but generally, a steady incline all the way to the top. Lots of deer poop, so watch where you're stepping! Also one or two spots where there's been crumbling of rocks on to the track. Trail is marked and easily followed, as per description. Parking seems limited. Vehicle access (4x4) further up starting May 1 (forgot closing date, sorry). Will do this again on a sunny day.
