Hike Knox Mountain

5 miles 1000 ft gain  - Out-and-Back Trail

Added by John Entwistle

Knox Mountain Park rises directly from downtown Kelowna and provides amazing views of Okanagan Lake and Kelowna. 

The beauty of Knox Mountain is that it really is a "choose your own adventure" type of place. There is a road that goes all the way to the top, so you can be as lazy as you would like. Hiking from the bottom parking lot to the top takes around an hour, and is well worth it for the views that you get all the way up. 

There are several trails on the way up, but my favourite is the Pavilion trail that starts at the lower parking lot, and you follow the signs all the way to the pavilion at the tip top of the mountain. Amazing views await!

Hike Knox Mountain

Very easy and nice walk. Good for families! You can enjoy beautiful view of Okanagen lake and the whole valley. I was luck to meet some deers on my way.

Beautiful View Of Kelowna

Nice easy hike close to the city. You can drive up to near the top if desired. You can see the whole valley up there.
