Biking in Summerland is more than a ride, it's a new discovery, it's an experience.
Short rides: Great for families and cruisers, the Lakeshore Pathway skirts the shoreline of Okanagan Lake past quaint parks and beaches. The pathway goes south from the Resort and north to Rotary Park and Beach. Stop along the way to dip your toes in the water or enjoy a snack.
- The Centennial Trail is a 4.5 km loop that starts up the road from the Resort at Peach Orchard Road but you can pick it up at Rotary Beach and carry on to Peach Orchard Beach and cruise to upper Summerland for great views of the lake and countryside.
- Mount Conkle Park is a drive from the Resort to the Summerland Rodeo Grounds where you begin for your hike or mountain bike. The trail follows the Kettle Valley Railway tracks from the adjacent station to the Trout Creek Trestle, so a steam train sighting may be on the books! If not, you will be more than happy with the beautiful views.
- Trans Canada Trail: This 9 km stretch follows the train tracks to the trestle, starting from the Summerland Rodeo Grounds (a drive from the Resort). The trail turns into 5 km of road at a parking lot on Fenwick Road, which crosses the railway line and passes by blossoming orchards until you are rewarded with the breathtaking view of Trout Creek Canyon and the historic train trestle which spans it. From here, a five minute walk will take you to Summerland Sweets and shaded picnic tables. Cool yourself down with delicious ice cream or sample fruit-based delights, including refreshing fruit wines.
