Trail begins at Tinhorn Creek Winery building. There are posted markers indicate the route however more would be of assistance in some places. I found a useful map at the "I"nformation center in Oilver.
Follow marker trail then take the detour to the Stamp Mill Ruins return the junction and head north through the cattle ranch about 3km to a gate. (there needs to be a marker here). The path eventually leads into the creek (there is a creek fording required - it's not deep) and from there you come to the road.
Take Old Golf Course Road back to 123rd ave and eventually meet the Tinhorn Winery access road.
Wildflowers are abundant in season (end of May). Some great views from the trail. Plus you can end the hike with a tasting at the winery,
Hi way 97 south of Oliver access to Tin Horn Creek winery is No 7 Road (also 328 ave). (it's marked for both the trail and Winery)

UpsideGreat Hike! You can explore an abandon Mining building remains too. The vineyard's staff are very friendly and encouraging of the hike and there isn't a better way to finish a great hike than a beautiful winery!

QuestionThe visitor centre confirms that only a portion of the trail has been bought. Local custom dictates that property owners pretend they think they have more rights than they do.
Start the hike from Tinhorn creek and you are welcome to experience this wonderful hike.ANSWERS are in this forum: Golden Mile trail is not entirely on private property

CommentThe Golden Mile Trail is acually on private property and will soon be closed off to the public, the reason why there are no markers at the gate is because it is private property and the info center in Oliver is aware of this and does not allow people be hiking on private property!!
