From the summit you will have good views of Pleasant Valley south towards Otter Lake, Vernon Swan Lake and the north arm of Lake Okanagan.

The trail system is maintained by the Armstrong Spallumcheen Trails Society.   A description of the trail system, a trail map and driving directions are all available on their website.   Visit
