The western park boundary borders Okanagan Lake where spawning salmon may be seen. The park features various hiking trails throughout the park, each differing in length and difficulty. These trails can also be used for running, mountain biking, bird-watching, and general sightseeing.

  • We took a nice walk that zigzagged up to the top (Apex trail, I think). We saw a group of deer on the way up. The hike was a fairly good workout, but not too difficult (we saw a guy in flip-flops). Th...  read more »
  • 从山顶俯瞰全城,Okanagan Lake和Kelowna市中心的景色尽收眼底,非常漂亮,十分适合风景摄影和拍照留念!来Kelowna应该都来这里看看,离市中心非常近。

  • A great place to see the Kelowna city. Both hiking and bike trails are very accessible and offer some spectacular views of the city. The lookout points are also accessible by car.
  • Parks nice a quite. Waters not the best for swimming lots of seaweed and not comfirmed but Im sure Duck Itch is a case here. If you are looking at just sun tan with not a bunch of people or drink on the beach this wpuld be the spot. Cheers
  • Fun hike and some beautiful views (both half way up and at the top) of the lake, downtown Kelowna, Black Mountain and Dilworth Mountain. Also, half way up is access to a trail that takes you to Paul's Tomb.
  • Great view over Okanagan lake. A bit of geology and wild life around. Nice trail up to the upper lookout.
  • A large park but very popular with the locals. Hard to get out and explore on your own some days unless you go deeper. It can feel a bit too utilized to get that feeling of true exploration. Plenty of trails for biking or hiking though, with some great views of the lake on your way to Paul's Tomb.
