BikePenticton.com Leisure series – Smethurst to Little Tunnel on the KVR
Looking for a nice scenic cruise that will take your breath away every time? Smethurst to Little Tunnel is your answer.
At just under 9km round trip, this ride has amazing views that are constant. The Smethurst to Little Tunnel KVR section is very family friendly and offers something for everyone. Keep in mind though that there are sharp drop offs along the trail, as well it being Rattlesnake country so be careful where you venture. At a grade of 2% on the climb to the Little Tunnel, it is a little bit of work to get there but it is very much worth every little bit of it.
This particular section is closed to motor vehicles so enjoy the amazing cycling and hiking opportunities. There are trail head maps, benches, Pit Toilets and Bike Parking throughout the ride.
The Smethurst Parking lot is an easy find, with Smethurst rd being about 500 metres past the Turnoff to Naramata on North Naramata rd if you are coming from Penticton. It is then just 1km up Smthurst rd on the right hand side. Plenty of parking for everyone if parked neatly.
