Individual Trail


30 min driving from Downtown Vernon

Bluenose is a stunning heavily forested hike with a few great clearings of the valley between Coldstream and Lumby. The hike itself is well marked and easy to follow. Prepare for a very steady uphill ascent, with a brief detour for a Viewpoint in the first 20-30 minutes off to the left. Return back to the trail and continue eastward to reach the apex of Bluenose Mountain.
