Aug. Trail-Day Sunday, Aug. 14th at 10am we'll head up to the Carmi / Ellis Canyon trail in order to do some basic pruning of overgrowth. Please bring sharp clippers, gloves, appropriate footwear, sunglasses and sunscreen, snacks and water. We’ll wrangle up a small post-event party as a “thank you” to volunteers. Contact Andrew Drouin at 250.486.2443 or in order to learn more.

Meet at 601 Braid Street in Penticton.

Hiking & Trail-Running

Pretty much the foundation of trail development for many decades, the Okanagan Valley's large contingent of hikers have quietly flagged and maintained trails 'under the radar' for over a half century in the South Okanagan.  We embrace their efforts and invite hikers and runners to join SOTA.

Mountain Biking

Local cyclists have built and maintained valley trails for many years, but it wasn't until 2009, with the formation of the Penticton & Area Cycling Association that legitimate / sanctioned trails began to come into their own.  The South Okanagan Trail Alliance is an off-road evolution of the bike club.
