Golden Mile Trail, a little walk

Golden Mile Hiking Trail
For the more adventurous try the 6.5 km (4 miles) long Golden Mile Hiking Trail starting at the Tinhorn Creek Vineyard. The trail is open to both hikers and mountain bikers. This trail traverses through fruit orchards and vineyards providing outstanding panoramic views of the surrounding valley and mountains around Oliver.

Visitor Info Centre
Make sure you pick up a map complete with route instructions from either Tinhorn Creek Vineyards at the southern end of the trail or the Visitor Info Centre next to Kiwanis Park. The Visitor Info Centre is located along the Okanagan River Multi-Use Trail in the renovated, built in 1923, CPR train station.

Fairview
The Golden Mile Hiking Trail is well worth walking it as it goes through some old mining ruins, past the historic Stamp Mill and the heritage town site of Fairview. Just remember this trail goes through some rougher conditions complete with Rattlesnakes and Prickly Pear Cactus. A good precaution is to wear some decent walking shoes. It is also wise that you be prepared for very hot conditions in the summer so please remember drinking water, hat and sunscreen.

the Stamp Mill


and following the rules that if there's no pictures it didn't happen.

PS Jet would've vouched for us anyway.
