Individual Trail

Central Okanagan / Glenmore

9 min driving from Downtown Kelowna

This trail is lesser known and has a very complex network of pathways that all intersect offering a "create your own" hike feeling. Stunning views of Northern Glenmore (notably Wilden) and downtown. The ascent to the apex of the trail follows a moderately steep and narrow deer trail leading to a communal fire pit which is only two minutes walk from the end viewpoint. The trek down descends the opposing side of the mountain at an incredible slope! Definitely prepare to slide down on your shoes a bit.

GPS Notes
Most often when viewing our maps, trails marked in Green or Blue have been human-verified by our volunteers. A route in purple indicates an overgrown trail or a bushwhack. Otherwise, the tracks may have been satellite traced or imported from third party sources. While we strongly believe our GPS are accurate, please be aware that no logging system is perfect and to be aware of potential errors.

  • The GPX file for this once appears to be buggered as well...

  • Hmm. I've tried downloading it with IE10 as well as FireFox Ver. 23 and after storing it on the desktop, it refuses to open in MapSource, stating that "the file could not be imported". The vast majority of the other files on this site work perfectly, just two that I've tried to date don't function - ending with the same error as above...

  • Did this on the weekend, great trail, a bit steep going down in parts. We connected eventually at the top to the public trails and found a wish tree!
