The Enderby Cliffs tower above the northern Okanagan Valley. Stunning views at the top extend as far as Vernon in the south and Salmon Arm to the north.
The hike starts down in the valley and winds up through forest. It’s a bit of a grind, ascending around 600 meters before reaching the top of the cliffs. From there it is absolutely hiking paradise, tramping around the rim of steep cliffs all the way to the highpoint, 1.5 km later.
