Right next to town, Giant’s Head is Summerland’s signature mountain. Although it has a narrow road to the top, it is used mainly for biking and other events like the annual freeriding event or annual grind.  Regardless if the gate is open or not at the trailhead, walk on the road a short distance and soon afterwards there is the option to continue up the road or take one of the paths that lead more directly to the top.

The summit boasts great views of Okanagan lake and the surrounding area – bring the whole family!
