About a 40 minute bike climb to the Nkwala Saddle overlooking trout creek and Penticton. From there you can either keep climbing to the tower or enjoy the nice bomb down to the west bench. One of my fav singletrack downhills. Lots of fun turns and a couple jumps.

Bike shop / rentals: Freedom Bike Shop
Accomodations: Summerland Resort

Directions:

One of my favorite trails in the Penticton area. Start at the Summerland KVR Trestle just past summerland sweets. Go over the trestle and after about 2km there is a trail exiting to the right (see pics and gps data).

You'll have to use the pics or data to figure out the rest, though there aren't many turns. When you reach the saddle you can either continue up the road to the Radio Tower or cut off the trail to the left.


The trail to the left is the start of a really fun downhill bomb that ends up in the west bench near the sage mesa golf course. I generally ride back to Summerland on the KVR because I'm from there but you could start the loop in Penticton just as easily. See you there.

Fast rolling singletrack and some switchbacks. Downside Watch out for the rattle snakes! Comment Also check out the other peak (Separtist Mtn.) opposite side of the saddle. There are some cool trails there too.

Downside Climb from Loop Point is all on Double track and can be hard to ride when dry. Comment Great ride, start from KVR near Pine Hill golf course and make your way north on the KVR. At the Loop Point you will start to climb for about 3.5km then you will decend for the remainder of the ride. After you reach the Saddle you exit to the left onto a great single track that will take you all the way back to WestBench road near the store. A GPS is a must to stay ont he trail as there are many forks on the trail.
