This is a Provincial Trail run by the Ministry of Forests. The highlight is that it serves as an interpretive trail for the large Garnet fire in 1994.

There is GPS data attached to this trail (see "download GPS"), which if loaded into your GPS can help you find route points.

Directions:

The Trail is 9 km. west of Penticton. Take Carmi Road until you reach Beaverdell Road. Turn right on Beaverdell and continue for a few more kilometres and it will be on your right.

Oftentimes attempted as a shuttle in these parts - though it makes a great hike either way. Comment The site is becoming rather run-down, as ministry funds are low and staffing even lower...

The trail shown here is the 'small section'. A marge larger version is available - reached be driving up the Beaverdell Rd. another few km to a large (really large) parking lot on your right hand side. Enter there and follow toward the canyon, across the garbage-strewn parking lot...

Descend the old / partly blocked dirt road, follow the trail northwest... don't go back to the road, veer left onto the singletrack.

Follow the canyon-side singletrack northwest all the way back down to the Garnet Valley Interpretive Fire Center at the cattle-guard.

Full details of the area, including maps and detailed text is available at www.sweetsingletrack.ca

I've uploaded a GPS track for this one to provide some visual instructions to the area.

You can see for miles! Downside The trail was not well marked in spots and I got a little turned around when I went to the canyon ledge to snap pics. Also, while the claim is that it's a one hour hike, it only took me a half hour to complete and that was with dawdling to admire the view. Comment The trail was much more hilly than I thought it would be and there was a bit of scrambling on the rocks (but, since I couldn't find the trail in spots, I may have been off course. Still, worth checking out if only for the scenery.
