Mission Creek Greenway Trail

One of the most visited recreation trails in the community of Kelowna, BC. The Greenway Trail is 17 - 22 kilometres long. The trail explores along the shores of Mission Creek passing through many eco systems while exploring canyons, wetlands, forests, ponds and hoodoos.

The Greenway Trail is popular for hiking, biking, jogging, rollerblading, birdwatching and dog walking in the summer months. During the winter months, after the snow has fallen, the trail morphs into a cross country ski and snowshoeing route. At no time during the year are motor vehicles permitted on the trail.

The first section of the trail, from Ziprick Road to Lakeshore Road, is 7 kilometres long and is considered an easy grade trail with very little elevation hiking. This section of the trail is ideal for all ages and fitness levels. Information signs, viewing benches and viewpoints are found along this section of the trail. Highlights on the trail include the Hall Road Ponds, Benvoulin Woods, Casorso Wetlands and the Father Pandosy Mission.

The second section of the trail, KLO Creek to Ziprick Road, is 9 kilometres and is more challenging with some elevation hiking. The trail is narrow in many sections, crossing over creeks, exploring forests and canyons while walking up switchbacks and stairs. Along the trail are resting benches, information signs and some spectacular sightseeing. The main highlights along this route include the canyon views and Layer Cake Mtn. in the Scenic Canyon Regional Park.

The Greenway Trail passes through Mission Creek Regional Park. For many, the park is the half way point of the Greenway Trail. There are many access points to the trail starting from a number of residential streets in Kelowna. But most access the trail from one of the paved designated parking lots found on the trail.

How to Get to Mission Creek Greenway Trail :

Located south of Highway #97 and Highway #33 in the community of Kelowna are many access points to the trail. To keep it simple the main access points are Lakeshore Drive, Ziprick Road parking area, Gerstmar Road parking area, Hollywood Road parking area, Mission Creek Regional Park and Scenic Canyon Regional Park.
