Hiking the Spion Kop trail

When you make it to the summit of Spion Kop in the Lake Country, it’s like being on top of the Okanagan.

The name Spion Kop is Dutch for “Look out hill.” From the top you can see Okanagan Lake on one side and Wood Lake on the other. It’s a beautiful view of the Valley.

Below are some pictures we took while hiking the trail. Also, scroll to the bottom for a pdf of the trail, which is available in brochure format at the trail head, and directions on how to get there. The driving directions are in the brochure.
