Default Enderby Cliffs - May 30 2014

We spent a few days camped at Fintry Park in the Okanagan. In the park is an excellent staircase to view Fintry Falls on Shorts Creek.

The trail up Enderby Cliffs has been lengthened to 7 KM. They have the old trail barricaded in a dozen or so places. It was a pleasant trip with the first 3 KM meandering through the forest, then 14 switchbacks gently elevating us to the ridge at about 5.5 KM.

The flowers were in abundance along the whole ridgeline to the summit! Then shortly after the 7KM marker, the top!

From the top we could see Okanagon Lake to the south and Shuswap Lake to the north.

And the south ridge we walked up on.

A very worthwhile adventure!

Hey Stu, I was up Enderby Cliffs on June 1 so just missed yout guys! A very enjoyable hike that I hadn't done in a long while. It's nice to see the trail work Parks has done...added about 1.5 km distance but now its much easier grade.

I'll post my TR soon...
