Bedford Lookout Loop


This trail is part of the immense Bedford Trail network. The network has over 30 km of trails, many of which are seldom used in 2021 and have become overgrown, with even the signs and markers aging and falling off trees. The official park map is wildly out of date and incomplete. Do not attempt without our GPS map: it is easy to get lost — especially considering most of the park is out of cell service range.

While most of the trails here simply meander through the forest, the Lookout Loop has a spectacular view of Okanagan Lake and the entire valley that shouldn't be missed. It's easy to spend a day here wandering the trails, passing by countless swamps, creeks, ponds, and lakes.

In early spring (April) be prepared for the trail to be flooded in numerous areas.

GPS Notes
We have often color-coded our GPX tracks. While it is not always the case, we have tried to use the following convention on our newer maps:

Green/Blue: human-verified by our volunteers.
Purple: overgrown trail, bushwhack, or on private property.
Red: default color or not reality-checked
Yellow: Road
Other Colors: May have been satellite traced or imported from third party sources.

While we strongly believe our GPS are accurate, please be aware that no logging system is perfect and to be aware of potential errors. Use at your own risk.
