Fur Brigade Trail

Explore Peachland’s section of the historic Fur Brigade Trail. The trail was created based on the existing trails that were walked by Indigenous people for thousands of years. In the 1800s, fur traders used these trails to transport furs from Northern BC to the Columbia River. The section of the trail that is currently open extends from south of Peachland to Summerland; however, the Peachland summit trail is around 8km with a 300 m elevation gain. Become a part of history yourself and sign the Fur Brigade Trail guestbook, located 1km up the trail.

From Highway 97, take Hardy Street and follow it as it turns sharply left and becomes Thorne Rd., a dirt road. Make another left turn onto Log Chute Road and follow the road as it switches back and forth a few times. Park safely on the side of the road at the trail head, which is marked with a blue and white hiker symbol. If you reach the orchards, you have gone too far.
