Campbell Mountain: Perimeter Loop


This trail network offers spectacular views of both Skaha and Okanagan Lakes while perched overlooking Penticton. This vast trail network is ideal for mountain bikers, but can be disorientating to follow without a GPS log. This particular route is the best way to enjoy all of the highlights the trail has to offer. Starting off as a more or less flat meander through arrow-leaf balsam root meadows, ascend the south side of the mountain pas the cell tower heading north back to the parking lot.

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.
