Why choose a trail at Okanagan Falls?

The Okanagan Falls are a series of waterfalls located in the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia. The falls are located on the Okanagan River, which flows from Vernon to Penticton. The falls are a popular tourist destination, and are accessible from Highway 97. The falls are divided into two sections, Upper and Lower. The Upper Falls are located near the town of Okanagan Falls, and the Lower Falls are located near the city of Penticton.

The Upper Falls are a set of two waterfalls, with a total height of 47 metres (154 feet). The Lower Falls are a set of three waterfalls, with a total height of 41 metres (135 feet). The falls are fed by the Okanagan River, which originates from Lake Okanagan and flows south through the valley. The river is dammed at both ends of the valley, forming two reservoirs, Lake Vernon and Penticton Lake. The falls were created by the last ice age, when a glacier carved out the valley.
