Description

Vernon's Grey Canal trail is a hiking, biking and horseback riding wilderness trail that follows the old Grey Canal irrigation system alignment around Vernon. Sections of the 50 km (31 mi) Grey Canal route can now be used by the public for hiking, biking, horseback riding and snowshoeing. The original route of the Grey Canal is still visible today as visible horizontal lines carved into the hillsides above the valley. Below them orchards and farms, and the City of Vernon. As you explore the route, you may discover the remains of the canal and its elaborate system of ditches, pipes and flumes. Enjoy any one of the three Grey Canal Trail sections with stunning scenery and a panoramic view of the valley. Coldstream Valley Estates to East Vernon This easy trail section is .65 km (.4 mi). As you round the corner of Vernon Hill, you'll find this short viewpoint hike that overhangs the Okanagan and Coldstream valleys. Coldstream Centennial Project Start on the north end of this .9 km (.55 mi) section of the historic Grey Canal. It follows the ditch walkers' berm and is bounded by the prominent white fences of the Coldstream Estates. The Coldstream Valley views are magnificent! Coldstream Valley Estates to Coldstream Ranch The 2.5 km (1.55 mi) trail takes you to a cottonwood creek gully filled with bird calls and a cattle-worn creek.
