Trail Description


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."
