Great hike up to the top with an amazing view. No matter the weather, great exercise. The drive up to the parking lot is a little nerve wracking for someone who is afraid of heights. But still a great and fun place to visit.

Beautiful view and great workout

Around a 2 km uphill hike if you take the red trail. Go early in the morning to avoid the heat. Is a road that goes up the mountain but it’s currently closed. Beautiful view at the top of the lake and Summerland.

Would recommend this activity to anyone who has 1 to 2 hours of time that wants some exercise on their holidays but also wants a rewarding view at the top.

Athletic kids 5 and up could do it but it would be challenging because of the steepness. Ground also gets rather dusty and traction is slippery in summer.

Fit people would be around 20 to 30 min to the top.

Parking lot on the road at the bottom. Road signage from the city telling you how to get there. Didn’t see any bathrooms and no water fountains.

We enjoyed a nice hike up the mountain. They have been working on the trails recently. Great views and not very populated!

So worth the "hike" for the beautiful view of Lake Okanagan and up and down the valley! I highly recommend for everyone!

Whether you are a tourist or a local, hiking the Giant is a remarkable experience - for the views - for the scenery - for the exercise! The summit (an extinct volcano) of Giant's Head affords a 360 degree view of the valley and the azure water of the lake. Recommended in all seasons!

Bring water and a camera

Four of us (Seniors) walked to the top of this spectacular lookout and it was well worth the trek. The view in all directions was great and although there were lots of people up there it didn't seem at all crowded. Good shoes, water and your camera, for sure.

We walked/hiked to the top and oh baby it was worth it.
The trail is mostly paved bit dont let that influence you. The views are spectacular. A nice moderate hike that shouldn't take more than 3 hours up and back

The top of this mountain has the best views of Okanagan lake and the town of Summerland that can be had. You can drive to just about the top park and hike the last few hundred meters. The view is worth the effort.

Know What to Expect Before You Start the Drive Up
Sep. 2019 • Friends
View from the top is beautiful but there should be signs at the bottom alerting drivers that this 1 lane road (or as some have referred to it “paved hiking path”) handles 2-way traffic. There are places to pull over slightly to let another car pass if you meet near one of them. I met a large truck coming down as I was going up. He pulled over towards the hill as far as he could and we inched past each other while my son watched the amount of pavement available on the passenger side before the road dropped off - which was no more than 6 inches. Fortunately on the way down we only came across hikers on the road and not more vehicles. Not recommended for inexperienced drivers. Nice easy hike to the top from the parking lot at the end of the drive.
