Upper Knox Mtn Drive closed for winter

Trails remain open through the winter. The lower portion of the drive will close Nov. 25.

Knox Mtn. Park overlooking Kelowna

The upper portion of Knox Mountain Drive is now closed due to cooler weather and icy conditions. The remainder of Knox Mountain Drive starting at the parking lot at the base of the park will be closed to vehicle traffic on Nov. 25.

The park trails will remain open to those on foot or bike from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. Park users are advised to be cautious as the road and pathways will not be cleared of snow or ice throughout the winter.

Knox Mountain Drive closes annually due to poor driving conditions. The roadway becomes increasingly hazardous due to precipitation and colder temperatures. The road will remain closed to public vehicles until the spring.

Park users are reminded to keep their dogs on-leash, except once inside the off-leash dog park south of Knox Mountain Drive.

For more information about Knox Mountain Park and other municipal parks, visit kelowna.ca/parks or contact parks@kelowna.ca.
