Lakestone Ridge

Lake Country

A meandering ridge walk with a stellar view of Okanagan Lake.

Suitable for almost all skill levels, and frequented by hikers and cyclists alike, this is a smaller network in the midst of a newer subdivision at the Lakestone Community. Create a loop of upwards of 1.5 to 2 hours, depending on skill level.

This land is not official parkland, and apparently has been slated for development for residential homes for 2023 onwards.

Detailed Directions

This is a new devleopment as of 2023. The directions on GPS may be inaccurate if plotting a route here around this time.

  1. From downtown Kelowna, follow Celement Ave EAST away from downtown.
  2. Turn LEFT on Clifton.
  3. Turn RIGHT onto High Rd
  4. Turn LEFT onto Glenmore Drive and follow for 14 km
  5. Turn LEFT onto Okanagan Center Rd W, just prior to Seaton Rd. If you hit Highway 97, you have gone too far.
  6. Approximately 1.6 km since the last turn, park at the pump house and take the trailhead to the east. This is 400 m WEST of the Lake Country Dog Park at 8756 Okanagan Centre Rd W.

For an alternative entrance to the top of the trail network:

After the last step noted above, turn RIGHT onto Beacon Hill Dr and follow for approx 1 km, and eventually turning RIGHT to stay on Beacon Hill Dr (instead of continuing on Long Rd) and the trailhead begins in the cul-de-sac.

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.
