The Hidden Gem of the Okanagan
Vernon is a must-ride destination for all mountain bikers. From flow trails with scenic views of Kalamalka and Okanagan Lake to forested technical riding, there is something for everyone in Vernon. Located in the North Okanagan, Vernon shares the enviable lifestyle of Okanagan communities—beaches and peaches—but has the added benefit of having great hillsides and mountains right next to downtown.
Kalamalka and Ellison Provincial Park all have mountain biking trails, developed and maintained by the North Okanagan Cycling Society, with close enough access to jump in the lake right after a great ride. Nearby SilverStar Mountain Resort—located just 25 minutes from downtown Vernon—has lift-accessed mountain bike trails with over 1,600 vertical feet of great terrain. The trails have been created to meet a full range of riding expectations from beginners to experts.
