  • Great set of trails with three convenient parking lot levels so you can decided how much elevation you want to climb on foot. The views are spectacular, and it's almost within walking distance of the downtown core. Trails are well maintained and pretty clearly marked at intersections. Bring water, there is not a lot of shade and the summer sun gets hot!
  • Fun to ride up the switchbacks on the road bike. Visited another time to explore the peak. Stunning views. A must do hike if you're into that sort of thing.
  • Views are beautiful, lots of different types of terrain to suit different fitness levels and interests. Great place to walk dogs. Many trails and also a paved road to the top.
  • Great hiking area, tennis courts and dog park. Really close to a frisbee golf course, the water front, and lots of parking. Great spot to hang out or play
  • Fun and easy hike. Good city views. You can hike, Jog, or drive the mountain. Not challenging but enjoyable

Where to stay in Kelowna

Downtown is considered the most desirable area to stay, with several hotels backing onto Kelowna City Park and offering views over the lake. The southern lakeside suburb of South Pandosy and the inland neighborhood of North Central also offer a range of accommodations, which cater to those looking for a genuine taste of Kelowna. If you have a car, you can stay at one of the roadside accommodations in Dilworth-Enterprise or Leathead.
