Denison Lake Trail
When summer rolls around, the Okanagan Valley’s scorching hot weather propels most to flock to the beaches, but why not change things up a bit and go on a well-shaded hike to a backcountry lake, where you can cool off and bask in quieter, remote views. The Denison Lake Trail immerses you in the Okanagan’s less-travelled rustic backyard!

Route Description for Denison Lake Trail
Denison Lake Trail in the Okanagan Valley is an excellent summer-day activity! The well-shaded trail follows a relatively flat path with some undulations. At one point, you’ll reach a trail junction, which is the start of a loop. You’ll continue this loop on your way back! Look out for green arrows on the trees to help direct you.
On your way to the lake, head left and take another left at the next junction. Continue walking until you see the lake. You’ll return the way you came, but to switch things up, take the other side of the loop on the way back, which joins up with the initial path.
Getting to the Denison Lake Trail Trailhead
To get to the trailhead for Denison Lake Trail from Vernon, head to BC-6 and continue driving for a while until you reach Creighton Valley Road just after Lumby. Take a right here. 6.5 km into the logging road, pull into a small lot and start your walk from here. There are some ribbons on the trees, but they can be hard to spot at the entrance. Look out for them!
