Paul’s Tomb

Knox Mountain – Kelowna, BC

An easy to moderate hike, only 3KM round trip and in Downtown Kelowna, this hike has very little incline. Walk your dog (on leash) while taking in the breathtaking views of Lake Okanagan. This is a great place for an evening stroll or an afternoon picnic with the family. Paul was a Kelowna Pioneer and in the early 1990’s he decided to build a large tomb for his family. This tomb can be viewed near the end of your hike. Not interested in the history behind the tomb Paul built? Enjoy the beach at the bottom of the hike, let your dog grab a quick drink of water and begin your travel back to the start.

Knox Mountain

Similar to Paul’s tomb, this trail is in Downtown Kelowna with access from Ellis Street. This moderate to difficult hike is only 1-5km round trip depending on when you decide to turn around! Dogs are allowed but only on leash. If you reach the very top of the hike, take in the spectacular views of Lake Okanagan and the City of Kelowna. If you decide to just go halfway, enjoy the views and finish your hike with a stroll down Paul’s Tomb!

Waterfront Boardwalk

Are you looking for an easy stroll through the City of Kelowna? Then head downtown, park anywhere in City Park and take your dog (on leash) to Waterfront Boardwalk. This trail can connect you to the Rotary Marshes Wildlife park. An amazing area where it is common to see eagles, herons or beavers hanging around! Not only does Waterfront Boardwalk have a ton of things to see but you can also stop by Bernard street and enjoy all of the local shops and restaurants Kelowna has to offer. If that is not enough reasons why this is in our list of top 4 hiking trails in Kelowna list, I don’t know what is!
