The Okanagan Rail Trail was created by converting a decommissioned railway track into a multi-use pathway. Sept. 27, 2018 was the official opening date for the majority of the trail. Once completed, the Okanagan Rail Trail will span 49.5 km from Coldstream to Kelowna's downtown.

Please respect the following Okanagan Rail Trail section closures:

The approximately seven-kilometre section north of the Kelowna International Airport: Please be advised that there are currently no alternative routes, so be prepared to end your trip at the airport if travelling north, or at McCarthy Road in Winfield if travelling south. There’s presently no anticipated opening date for this section of trail.
Approximately 2.5 km of this section is pending the successful completion of the federally administered Addition to Reserve process to the Okanagan Indian Band (OKIB), and approval by the OKIB council to allow for public trail use.
