Nowhere else around Kelowna offers you three lakes in one viewpoint. Spion Kop has more than one way to approach the summit but regardless of the trail you choose, you will be rewarded with stunning views of Okanagan Lake, Wood Lake, Ellison Lake. And if you take the trail on the east side of the mountain, you can also see Kalamalka Lake.

If you are familiar with Knox Mountain's Apex Trail, than Spion Kop's Summit Trail will feel similar. You will experience a moderate climb with some steeper sections.

The view at the summit makes all of the hard work worth it.

Okanagan sunsets are a great reward after a good hike.
