Tackle this hike and be rewarded with stunning views of Okanagan Lake and the gorges behind the mountain. The Gladstone loop is about 7km long and there is an optional 1 km excursion to see a rare, 400-year-old Ponderosa Pine Tree. There is a 300 m elevation gain. Bring good hiking shoes, water, and a snack.
The locals say: “One of my favorite hikes is Gladstone Trail….it is a relatively new hiking trail for Peachland but one that can challenge every hiking enthusiast. I enjoyed this trail last year and found the way that it wanders through varying mountain scapes very interesting!” – Jenny B.
The trailhead is located at the corner of Victoria St. and Harrington Crescent. To get there, follow Princeton Ave. and take a right on Somerset Ave., then left on Gladstone Rd., and left again on Victoria St.
