Five Great Family Hikes in West Kelowna

by Josée

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.

Bear Creek Provincial Park: Canyon Rim Trail

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.


Glen Canyon: Glen Canyon Greenway Trail

A 74 hectare park that follows Powers Creek as it flows down into Okanagan Lake. A nice 4.4 km (return) trail with lots of variety!


Kalamoir Regional Park

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.


Mount Boucherie: Eain Lamont Park Entrance

A remnant volcano with stunning views from the top! Lots of unmarked trails with plenty of opportunities for adventure.


Rose Valley Regional Park

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.
