Poplar Grove parking lot has the most space available. It is a nice warm up for those who don't ride from town.
Follow the KVR trail across the road and up until you reach a paved road, Riddle Road. Head uphill. At the end of the paved you will see an obvoius white steel fence, go around and climb the dirt track to the official "Pearly Gates". A haggard looking old fence.
Enter ... The Three Blind Mice

Access Info

Head towards Naramata from Penticton. Find your way to Naramata Road and keep on it for several km **. There will be signage directing you to the parking on the left (look for an abandoned baseball backstop). If you pass by Hillside Estate Winery, you've gone too far.
