Head to Trepanier for a little Peachland history. Along the trail there is an offshoot to access the Stave Pipe Trail with views of the first hydrodam that used power Peachland. Old wooden pipeline ruins can be seen at various points in the trail.
At the crest of the walk near Hwy 97C, the trail leads through blackened trees in an area with recent forest fires. The only downside to the trail is that it is only one way, with no obvious options to make a loop of it. It is possible to connect through the old golf course to the Pincushion Hike trailhead and back around for a bit of a loop but route-finding isn’t trivial.
