This ride through the South Okanagan will take you through the heart of Canada’s only desert. Keep a watchful eye out for snakes, scorpions and black widow spiders, and remember that they’re more scared of you than you are of them. Park your car at the Visitor Centre in Oliver for free and ride along the river. This is a mostly paved path through Oliver, and south of Oliver towards Osoyoos turns to gravel. This Trail Route ends at the Osoyoos Oxbows Trailhead on rd 22. From here you are able to continue to Osoyoos, however there are sections you may need to ride along highway 97.
If you choose to continue to Osoyoos, end your journey with a dip in the lake and a glass of wine from the many wineries in the area. Osoyoos Lake is (arguably) the warmest lake in Canada, and is perfect for cooling off after a long day of riding.
