  • We went here on a hot sunny day, but the view did not disappoint us. There was a lookout near the first stop and it seems like not a lot of people know about it. Knox mountain is fairly near the city, and it’s a moderate hike/ bike ride to the top. The view is beautiful and you can of course see the city from up here. A good place to explore in the weekend for all people, couples, friends, families. There’s a quiet park at the bottom of the mountain to relax after a hike too.
  • Small peacful park with ample shade. Lots of grassy areas and trees with washrooms and a small playground. Knox mountain market is a block away and offers most convenience store amenities plus it has a small deli where they make sandwiches. This park is dog friendly but ONLY ON LEASH. There is an off leash area on Knox mountain which is just down the road about a block away for anyone wishing to to for a good run with their dog.
  • The hike from the bottom to the top never disappoints. It's challenging but not gruelling. The views along the way and from the top are worth the time to make the journey. Although there is a fountain at the top for both humans and dogs I highly recommend to hike with enough water for yourself and fido. Many a times I have shared my water with other parched canines because owners forgot a bowl or didn't realize how hot it is.
  • Truly an amazing walk, with amazing views. Seen some deer playing and a wide variety of birds. People were extremely friendly when coming across on the paths. Was extremely well maintained didn't see any liter. It was nice to see outhouses along the paths. Didn't get to experience all the paths, or Lookouts, but I'm looking forward to the next visit. Would totally recommend a visit if you are in the area.
  • Great place with amazing views!! Trail was easy enough. Pretty steep switchbacks but fairly short. Will do this next time I'm in Kelowna again.
