Extend the ride:
Option 1: add on the 8 km stretch south to Osoyoos Lake where you will see an Osprey nest or two. This section of the trail is unpaved and bumpy in sections. If you want to start this trail from the south end and head north to Oliver: from Hwy97 in Osoyoos go east on Road 22. There is a parking lot where the trail meets the bridge. The trail goes south for about 1km and north to Oliver.
Option 2: To make the trip a circle, add on the west side of Oliver and ride down Black Sage Road to visit a few wineries! Link to #95 Oliver Winery Tour.
