There are few ways to enter the Lakestone Trail area. Note that this is everchanging as the area is transformed into new suburbs. The most legitimate entrances are off Tyndall Rd where there are a couple obvious trail signs visible from the road. A few other access points exist along Okanagan Centre Road W, Chase Rd and Camp Rd. Consult the maps below for alternate entrances.
The only official trails exist as seen in the sign above (wetland loop etc…). These are short and well marked. The more rugged territory for exploring is in the section slated for development of the ‘highlands’ community. There are a crisscross of ATV, walking and biking trails existing at the moment and the main destination is the beacon tower at the summit. Another less visited option is the steep cliffs at the southwestern end of the area. This area is unsigned and it is easy to get turned around. In general, keep going up to find the beacon.

Easy to Stay on trail: Aside from the short signed trails it is a bit of a choose your own adventure. So, not really.
