The first 4km is an old two track which is quite pleasant and follows beside Lacoma creek. The next 4.5km of single track is a thing of beauty. The trail winds through interior Douglas fir, pine and birch stands and eventually stops at Lacoma Lake. This trail is completetly different than anything in the central Okanagan.
Elevation gain is gradual with a few shorter steeper climbs that will test your cardio.
As of September 2016 the trail was totally cleared of fallen trees and 100% de brushed by trail gremlins. (More improvements to come in 2017 but trail is 95% rideable)
Coming back out the downhill is fun, fast and flowy.
To reach the Lacoma Lake trailhead: If coming from Peachland, take Trepanier Bench Rd off of Hwy 97 (3 km north of the traffic lights in Peachland). This road heads north from Hwy 97 for 7.5 kms and passes under Hwy 97C onto Trepanier Rd. If coming from Westbank/Kelowna - take Trepanier Road exit off Hwy 97C. The exit is located approximately 6 kilometres from the intersection of Hwy 97C (Okanagan Connector) and Hwy 97. Whether coming from either direction, the pavement ends shortly on the Trepanier Road. Once on the gravel portion of the road, continue travelling another 8.5 kms to an unmarked trailhead which is located at the turnaround. (Watch for an old collapsed BC parks kiosk) Ensure you keep right on the main gravel road as the alternative routes are not passable. The road is rough and overgrown and has no regular maintenance. It requires a vehicle with good clearance (4x4 highly recommended).
