FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Have You Tried the Mt. Boucherie Rush?

Quickly becoming one of the Okanagan’s most popular hiking destinations, the new Mt. Boucherie Rush Trail is your access to breathtaking mountaintop views of Okanagan Lake and beautiful West Kelowna.

New interpretive signage has been installed on the 3-kilometre trail that takes you to the top of Mt. Boucherie, located in the centre of West Kelowna. The trail is multi-use and is open to pets on leash and cyclists and is popular for those who love to run.

Two trailheads lead to the Boucherie Rush Trail. The main trail can be accessed adjacent to the baseball diamond in Darroch Park on East Boundary Road, and a second trail access, with small parking area, is located farther south on East Boundary Road.

The new Rush trail is one of the many options for exploring Mt. Boucherie. For a shorter hike, check out the Flint Man trail or, for a black diamond challenge, try the Andesite Grinder. All hikes are clearly marked with signage.

Working in collaboration with Westbank First Nation, interpretive signage has been placed at points of interest along the trail showcasing local flora, fauna and geological history as well as the First Nation legend about the creation of Mt. Boucherie.

Hikers are reminded to bring water, to take only photos and leave only footprints, and above all, enjoy!
