      A short, steep trail to a lookout with wonderful views of White Lake, Little White Lake, and the Tappen Valley and towards Mt Ida in Salmon Arm.

      Start at the John Evdokimoff Bike Park. Find the trail on the left/south west side, then branches off to the left just after entering the trees. The trail climbs alongside a stream (intermittent in the summer) before emerging onto the Forestry Rd. Turn left along the Forestry Rd for a short distance then turn right onto an ATV track just before the stream crossing at the bend of the Forest Service Rd. Stay right at the first junction on the ATV track and watch for the trail a little further up on the left. Follow this trail up to the next junction and take the right fork. The trail climbs steeply through the forest emerging along rocky bluffs looking over White Lake. Take a moment at the memorial plaque placed in honor of Jonathan Halper, a local mountain biker who loved this trail, before continuing to climb higher. Watch for Mariposa Lilies, Arnica, and Arrow Leafed Balsam Root in the spring. And be sure to sign the cheerful trail register along the way. The final climb takes you up through a wonderful open grassy forest before popping out at the radio tower (and the whimsical trail sign also erected in honor of Jonathan). From the tower, proceed to the right/northeast into the open cut block and look for a narrow trail on your right (watch for abundant wild strawberries here. . .and bears) Follow this trail weaving through the new growth of the cut block until it emerges at a forestry landing, and more views over White Lake and the Reinecker Creek valley. Return the way you came.

      An alternate return is to follow the quad trail down (very steep in places, but good footing) to the forestry road at about 1 km, go left for another km and left again. Just past 3 km will be the White Lake Balmoral Trail. It is a nice alternative to the road and is possibly a bit shorter. When you reach the road, retrace your steps downhill a short distance to the trail to the Bike Park.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country

      Land Status: Crown Land

      Access Info:
      Approx. 9.3 km east of Sorrento on Hwy 1 at the Balmoral Rd junction, White Lake Rd forms a loop, returning to Hwy 1 at Calin 4 km farther east, approx. 20 km west of Salmon Arm. Watch for the Parri Rd intersection at the west end of White Lake. Turn east here and drive approx. 3 km watching for the White Lake Provincial Park sign on your right. Park near the boat launch and look for the old road just back to the west along the lake.
