Knox Mountain

July 3, 2009

610m

Kelowna, BC

Knox Mountain is probably the most popular “mountain” in Kelowna. With very minimal effort one can get to a very fine viewpoint of Okanagan Lake & Valley, city of Kelowna and adjacent areas. We did it as part of our Okanagan road-trip, from Osoyoos to Kelowna. At Kelowna information center, stuffs suggested us to hike up Knox Mountain and gave us a route map. We parked at the upper parking lot, and from there the elevation gain was only 120 meters or so.

We took a break at Okanagan Lake Provincial Park
