The KVR trail from Penticton to Osoyoos is currently doable only in sections. There is no bridge across the Okanagan River south of Vaseaux Lake. There are sections of rail bed that are under dipsute by land owners, the section around Oliver is not usuable as per the track but there is the nearby International Hike and Bike Trail that runs adjacent to the Okanagan River. Trails BC has a map that shows what is currently doable, which includes road and highway segments.

       Note - there is no way to cross at Vaseux Lake, nor again a couple of km's south of there. Also, PACA isn't the governing body on this trail, that would be the KVR Trail Society (tctrail.ca)

       Trailforks is an open platform, if the are errors, please feel free to correct. Penticton was auto listed due to its proximity to the start.

       I added a web link to FVR. But this brings up a good point for a really long trail such as this. The "Local Trail Association" is pulled from the region, but this trail crosses several regions. So I think I will need to add a way to override/specify the listed association on a per-trail basis as well.

       Thanks, I was going to send that question over to you. Eventually the length will get broken into segments where the trail has actually been cut off, but until I get accurate positions I won't trim/segment it.
