      This regional park has an active road running most of the way up the mountain, and gets a lot of traffic because of its convenient location in town. The views are spectacular -- an Okanagan classic. Although cycling is currently allowed on the mountain, it is primarily used by walkers and runners. As of early 2019, the trails are being redeveloped to decommission erosion-prone routes, repair damage, clarify main routes, and establish a single steep "Giant's Head Grind" climb for pedestrians.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
      Shuttleable: YES
      Access Info:
      Ride from anywhere in town, or park at the main gate off Milne Road.
