    Route Description for McIntyre Bluff Hike

    The McIntyre Bluff Hike near Oliver, BC, is an incredibly scenic half-day hike that takes you to the Okanagan Valley's unreal views. Nothing beats the lush scenery, varying in shades, hugged by soaring hills and etched with glimmering lakes. Most people usually start this hike from Covert Farms, which also cuts the overall walking distance, but that area is currently closed off. However, the 18.0 km version of this hike will keep you outside and basking in nature for longer than expected—and there’s nothing wrong with that! The views at the top will reward, and the non-technical path will give you a chance to focus on conversations with friends or to relish in the scenery.
