Lochview Trail is a little-known path which is normally found only by accident while visiting Paul’s Tomb. The trail starts far up Clifton Rd and accesses Paul’s tomb from the north. The hike is more technical than Paul’s Tomb trail with its stairways and steep sections but it offers greater rewards like sweeping views of Lake Okanagan. The trail is built along the steep slope above the lake and gives ample opportunity to gawk at the architecture of Kelowna’s ultra-rich. Like Paul’s Tomb trail, this is a good one for the whole family.

Note that this trail can be done as an extension of the Paul’s Tomb trail but it is not suitable for cycling. To make it a loop, there are trails leading up from Paul’s Tomb into the vast network of Knox Mountain trails.
