Here’s a round-up of five family friendly trails to explore in West Kelowna, BC. Many of these trails were recently added to the Okanagan Hike and Bike Trail Map. Did you notice them pop up? Keep watching the map for new trails in the months to come.
Currently my son’s favourite hike in West Kelowna, the Canyon Rim Trail is a 2.5 km loop that follows Lambly (Bear) Creek up one side of the canyon and then down the other side. This trail has some great views and a neat places to explore.
A lovely park located on the edge of Okanagan Lake. Combine several of the well marked trails for a fun 2.4 km loop through the park and finish your hike at the beach for a refreshing dip in the lake.
A 250 hectare park with an extensive network of trails. Try out the Yellow Bell Loop which is a moderately difficult 3.1 km trail that starts at the kiosk, climbs up the hill to a great viewpoint of Kelowna, and then loops back around down to the parking lot.
