After 2.5 month of lock down, we are using every opportunity to go for a hike. There are so many beautiful provincial parks in the Okanagan area.
It is important to wear hiking shoes, pants (it is a tick season), sun hat, have a water bottle with you. I tried to take a picture of a tick hiding in the grass next to trail, just waiting for a new home with a meal!
Trepanier Creek Greenway Regional Park is a natural, forested park that borders the canyon of Trepanier Creek. The trail links to a linear trail in the District of Peachland and creates a five-kilometre Greenway recreational corridor from the Okanagan Lake waterfront to the Okanagan Connector Highway 97-C.
From 1909 to 1947 there was a small hydroelectric power plant on the creek that supplied the District of Peachland. Remnants of the Trepanier Creek Dam are still visible.
