Giant’s Head Hike Description

The Giant’s Head Hike in the Okanagan Valley is a lovely walk for all ages! You’ll find a network of trails laced throughout the area, all leading to Giant’s Head. For example, several people opt to park at the bottom of the hill and follow The Grind trail or the Friendly Giant Trail or veer off on the Upper Loop Trail.

However, this route guide takes you from the top parking lot along The Grind trail to the top.

The East Ridge Trail eventually meets up with Giants Head Road, which will take you back to the parking lot.
