  • This is a great place to go for a hike. There are several trails, look-outs and views of the lake. Paul’s tomb is the best known but there are several great walks n the area. Bikes can ride on the....  more »
  • It's a convenient park for a walk, and some of the views are fantastic, but the paths are all pretty short. It's perfect for an hour or two, but those who are looking for an actual hike will probably be underwhelmed by the trails. The Paul's Tomb trail goes down to a beach that is pretty cute and sometimes quiet. That spot is a perfect place for a date with a picnic.
  • Such a great place to go out for a hike, bike, or some good ole disc golf. Knox is so convenient, especially if you live near downtown Kelowna. It is great to be able to play some disc golf and then go for a few mountain bike laps after. The trails are all well maintained, and although they are short, they are lots of fun. It's so great to be able to get multiple laps in, but you just have to be ready for the ride up the road, as it is definitely a grind.
  • I love hiking the trails around Knox, great exercise. The views of the lake and city are spectacular. There are two gazebo looking points, one at the highest point on the mountain and the other lower down. You can drive most of the way up and there is limited parking. The last time I was there however, the road was closed after the first lookout and you had to walk up the rest of the way... not sure why this was as there were no signs posted so this could be temporary or permanent.
  • Fun easy walk/hikes. Wicked views from up top. Never gets old. I usually bike it from top to bottom.
  • Fantastic views of the city and Okanagan lake. Many well-maintained hiking trails and an off-leash dog park make this park a wonderful place to spend an afternoon exploring.
