EXPLORE BALDY Mt
The list of things to explore at Baldy Mountain in the summer is growing, and so is our excitement to share them with you. Pair a morning of mountain hiking trails with an afternoon of wine tasting, in the Wine Capital of Canada, and you have the makings for the ultimate summer adventure.
An Okanagan summer adventure on Baldy Mt is a special experience. Explore Baldy Mountain by foot. Enjoy the vibrant alpine flowers, the un-interrupted 360-degree views south into the USA and east into the Okanagan.
When the temperatures in Oliver or Osoyoos hit the +35 mark, it’s time to take a drive up to Baldy Mt, which averages 10 degrees cooler than the valley. Experience the natural beauty of the mountains at your own pace. The geological beauty of the area is breathtaking. The weather at the mountain is always on the move, providing a continual change of scenery, like watching art float by in the sky. Visitors have a chance to spot a variety of bears, deer, moose, owls, hawks and many other native flora and fauna. Enjoy the health benefits of visiting the mountains and breathe in the fresh high alpine air.
The Wine Capital of Canada is only 35 minutes to the west. Baldy Mountain Resort is close to lakes, wineries, fresh, local Okanagan produce, and many activities year-round. For a scenic experience, head east toward Grand Forks, only an hour and a half drive. Stop in the quaint towns of interior BC along the way and learn about some of the area’s history in more depth.
Hiking in the Okanagan
Baldy Mountain Resort turns into a hiker’s paradise by the middle of June. Most of the snow has melted from the lower trails and the snowshoe trails are quickly returned to their grassy state. Hiking to the top of Sugarlump is a fun adventure for the whole family and can be achieved by hikers of any level. Hiking to the top of Eagle is a longer adventure, but completely worth the views. There are many circuits and paths that guide you to the summit of Baldy Mt. It goes without saying that you can take a different route back to the base. Grab a picnic and summit alone, or explore Baldy Mt with friends. Tag your Instagram posts with #exploreBaldy and we’ll regram your best snaps!
