“On top of it ALL”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 September 2013

This view over looking the lakes could easily be over looked, but make the effort it is worth it. USA on your left, Canada on your right. Stunning breath taking views, only 10 minutes from Osoyoos it is hard to believe the number of people who are regular holiday visitors and never experienced the stunning view of the area.

“Gotta stop here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013

We chose to go down to Osoyoos from Kelowa via the 33 and over on the 3 just to see this much vaunted lookout. Time and trouble well spent as it really is this good. A big pull out area and warning when you are getting to it (from the east) so no trouble about access. And the view really is superb. I'll join in the chorus of 5/5.

“Great perspective of the whole valley”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2013 via mobile

I have enjoyed the view from Anarchist Mountain numerous times and I never tire of it. A short 10 km from the town of Osoyoos is the view over the whole valley. There are pullouts on both sides of the road so it is safe. When heading uphill, watch closely for the signs as the pullout comes up quickly.

It is a great view showing the size of the lake and the impressive valley. Sunset is a particularly nice time of day to enjoy.

“Spectacular view of Osoyoos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2013

A must visit spot when visiting the holiday town. Is a 10-minute drive up the mountain on the main highway on the east side of town. Parking can be tight and caution needed when exiting but the view is a 240-degree panorama of Osoyoos Lake, the town and neighboring Oroville (USA). Don't miss this.

“An aerial view without the aircraft!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2013

A must-see! On a clear day you can see the whole of Osoyoos Lake, north to south, from up here. Heart-stopping view from the lookout after we wound up the hairpin curves on the east side of the lake.
It's only about five kms, so doesn't take long from the town.
We were struck by the number of homes on the mountainside with private observatories—most unusual. We drove into the area on a dirt road and I hoped to meet one of the astronomers who obviously live here. But it was daytime and clearly they were all sleeping. Not one person did we see!
Go see this view!
