Okanagan Mountain Hike Description

The Okanagan Mountain Hike is a challenging but incredibly rewarding hike that unveils views of Okanagan Lake while guiding you to Divide Lake, an ideal spot for a backcountry camping adventure. The route may involve some bushwacking, so prepare to check for ticks after. Sometimes it’s difficult to spot where the trail is, so look out for flags and download your GPS before going. This is an out-and-back trail, so after you take a dip in the lake (or just stare at it), you’ll return the way you came.
