Mount Kobau Hike
The Mount Kobau Hike is a fantastic family-friendly walk that unveils stunning views of the Okanagan Valley. Unfortunately, the trailhead sits around an hour from both Osoyoos and Oliver, making it essential to pack some snacks and drive a long distance for a short hike. But when you get to the top, after little effort, the unreal sweeping vistas peppering the land make the mini road trip worth it.
