Route Description for Rose Valley Lake Loop

The Okanagan Valley’s Rose Valley Lake Loop hike circumnavigates Rose Valley Lake, providing top-notch lakeside views. Expect to wind above the lake at points, where a bird’s eye perspective of the lake nestled in the valley awaits! However, the networks of trails etched across Rose Valley Regional Park can make this hike a little confusing. Therefore, it’s best to download a GPS before you go.

If you plan on doing this hike in winter, bring ice cleats or crampons and poles to help ease the difficulty of traversing snowy and icy terrain.
