Knox Mountain Park encompasses 310 hectares (766 acres) of forest and grassland, home to a variety of ecosystems and wildlife including deer, birds, and grizzly bears. 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. Two lookout points--one of which is the mountain summit--provide views of the city, the park itself, and the surrounding mountains.

  • The view is nice but the noise coming from the sawmill is so loud to enjoy the park. And it seems the park and mountain are for dogs as the most of dogs are unleashed even the big and scary looking dogs. I guess the dogs are tamed for the owners but should I take chance for the accidential event?
  • Best view of the city! Drive up if you have trouble walking steep paths, or walk all the way to the top if you have an hour to spare (round-trip). Paul's tomb is another option if you have some time on your hands. There's less of an incline but it's a nice long walk so you still get a good workout. There's even lake access at the end of the Paul's Tomb walk, and bathrooms along the way. Make sure you pack lots of water for either hike, as there's nowhere to get a water top up along the way.
  • Nice location and view, but usually quite busy
  • Great place for a summer hike, the initial incline is quite steep but their is road access if you'd rather not hike it. The paul's tomb trail is by far my favourite .
  • Such a great place and we're lucky to have such a beautiful park so close to downtown.
