Trails could be better indicated
Jan. 2021
Walking visit only. Oddly not covered by Trailforks, so we were constantly guessing at what trail to use to return before dark, as various paths seemed to head off in all directions. Most people come here for the rock walls, and I'm sure one quickly figures the trails out.

Rock climbers and hiking galore
Sep. 2020
Ample free parking and there are volunteers who monitor the lots to prevent breakins. On the easily marked and well mapped trails, we stopped to chat with and observe rock climbers making their way up. Only issue is that they stashed their gear and supplies all along the trail, so extremely hard to social distance in this circumstance.

Great views and would love to hike it again next time.

Great hikes close to Penticton
Jul. 2019 • Family
Definitely not a place for an easy stroll but if you are up for a more strenuous hike over rough terrain you can’t go wrong with any of the myriad options here. The well-marked trails quickly move from semi-arid meadows dotted with wildflowers to sheer rock walls with lush greenery. Bring lots of water so you can stay longer than we could!

Walk, Hike or Climb - so many options
Jul. 2019 • Friends
My dad and I wanted a nice morning hike and Skaha Bluffs was perfect. We visited two mornings in a row. There are so many trail options. Some are a little more difficult than others, but overall a fairly easy hike. My dad is recovering from knee surgery, so he couldn't go back to hiking like he used to a year ago. We picked some random hikes and did Grand Canyon one day and a loop starting towards Red Tail/Doctor's Wall the next.

You can get about 300-400 feet elevation gain depending on the trail. Some sections are easy and some have a lot of rocks. We did see some bear scat on one trail. The area is beautiful with the rocks and lake views. A lot of wildflowers are out right now. I would highly recommend it. Nice thing too is you can bring dogs. Just bring extra water for them.

Beautiful trails, top notch climbing destination.
Oct. 2018
There are many gorgeous trail routes within the park, you can hike for hours if you choose. The views are stunning. This is a top notch rock climbing destination. I’m not a climber but it’s great to watch when you come across someone climbing.

Hikers dream

a bit of everything and you can hike for an hour or 5 hours. Recommend hiking shoes and grips in winter. Take a picture of the trails with your phone before you head out to ensure you don’t get lost... signs can be limited.

Beautiful place to visit
Nov. 2018 • Business
Everyone around the world is getting to know Skaha Bluffs. It is a great place to just go for a short was or a long hike and dog walkers (must be on leash). Excellent climbing, mountain biking for all ages. Skaha Bluffs has parking being monitored for you and your vehicles safety. Skaha Bluffs Park Watch is funded by donations from those who visit the park. Drop a loonie or two in the donation jar and say hello.

Come for the walk and enjoy watching the climbers!
Sep. 2018 • Couples
This is a climbers' mecca - but don't let that scare you away. This gem of a provincial park offers lovely trails with great views of Skaha lake - and the added bonus of being able to see climbers tackle the gnarly routes on the many cliffs and bluffs.

Lots of trails, beautiful views
Sep. 2018 • Couples
This place is definitely best known for it's rock climbing, but the hiking is also worth while. There is a large network of trails and some good viewpoints to admire the lake or cheer on the climbers! Wear good hiking shoes as some of the trails are quite narrow, uneven, and rocky. The park gate is closed in wintertime!
