Pincushion Mountain in Peachland
We went for a hike up Pincushion Mountain in Peachland. The hike is moderate to hard and takes about one hour to complete. The easterly view from the top of Okanagan Lake is incredible. It takes in Okanagan Mountain Provincial Park plus all the way to Penticton in the south to Kelowna in the north.
If you would like to take the hike turn on Ponderosa Drive off of Hwy 97 in Peachland. Take the road all the way up and go past the entrance to the golf course and continue right up to the last condominium and look for a gate near a fire road. Park your vehicle here.
Afterwords we went for a great coffee and baked goods at Bliss Bakery which is located along the waterfront in Peachland.
