A beauty of a mellow track.
Recently dug a new switchback climb at the start to avoid the grueling quad track.
When climbing, while in the massive pasture, keep on the lookout for Far Out to connect in from the right (uphill), that will be your best route up into the Mice. Depending on season, it may be difficult to spot as the grass can grow quite tall.

Access Info

When coming up from the KVR, it is past Turnbull Creek where the Penticton land ends by a couple hundred meters.
Look for a east side trail leading to a wooden swing gate.

       The entrance off the KVR no longer has a swing gate. The gate has been replaced by a Texas Gate cattle guard. There is also a nice map kiosk at the entrance
