As requested, we are going to hike Pin Cushion Mountain (Peachland) on Saturday (Oct 29)!
It’s a short hike of about 2km to the top but it is steep so bring good shoes and/or poles.
- Elevation at the gate (start): 570 m (1875 ft)
- Elevation at the summit: 815 m (2682 ft)
The parking lot is off Ponderosa Drive (turn right at the next light AFTER the IGA/Petrocan shopping area on the right). Hike starts at 10am, rain or shine.
Please carpool from Starbucks on Louie Drive (the “new” Starbucks in West Kelowna) due to limited parking and for the Earth – meet there at 9:30am. If you can arrange to pick up a fellow hiker somewhere in Kelowna, even better.
We will most definitely gather at Bliss Bakery after the hike 🙂 Also, there is an option to walk around the new Goats Peak Regional Park (which is off the highway when coming back from Peachland) on the way back, if anybody wants to walk more. It has very nice views as well.
