Road bikingGreat!

Very nice trail. Especially east side (Okanagan Rail Trail). Section through Woodsdale is not marked at all. I had a problem to reach Highway, cross it and reach the west trail side. West trail side has the asphalt, it is much faster anf more busy. Anyway I like the trail and will come back again. I'd like to add that lake was still covered with very thin layer of ice.

Bit boring, nice and flat, didn't do full loop. Good for kids and people with not great fitness levels.

First to Review

Amazing area for Spring flowers, Balsam Root and Saskatoon bushes in bloom until mid May, followed by Lupins and many other wild flowers. Great trails, easy for the whole family and spectacular views of three lakes from Summit Lookout. A choice you will not regret!
