This is always a great place to take a first time visitor to Kelowna. The drive up the mountain is fun and the short hike to the viewpoint is worth it. and it is all free of charge.

What a treasure to have this calibre of park just a minute or two from downtown. I wish that I had more time to explore all of the trails. The views were great. If I were a local I am sure this would be a regular hiking destination. One thing that might be worth mentioning is that washroom facilities are very limited.

As we were pressed for time we opted to drive up the mountain, the fact this is an option is great for those who might have limited mobility but still wish to see the views. The mountain has many trails to explore, we took one from the first level car park to look out over lake Okanagan and were told that if we continued on the trail we would come to a nice beach with great swimming. The mountain was very peaceful and the clear day allowed for great views of Kelowna and the surrounding hills. We then headed up to the top level car park which has toilet facilities for visitors and a nice panoramic view with information about the area. There is also a water fountain with a bowl for dogs so that you can rehydrate. We were also lucky enough to see a Mule Deer on the mountain whilst at the top. Really worth a visit but in hot weather, hats, drinks and sun cream are a must, along with a camera to capture the views.

amazing hiking and running trails with stunning views of the lake and Kelowna. Hike down to Paul's Tomb and cool off in the lake. Awesome.
