Okanagan High Rim Trail Association

Established in 2017 to maintain, improve and promote the High Rim Trail, from Vernon, BC to Kelowna BC


What started as the vision of a Okanagan Valley trail network by retired forester, Bruce Somner, became known as the Okanagan High Rim Trail. Several organizations were instrumental in the development and maintenance of this trail, and only in 2017, through the dedication of several enthusiasts, this organization was born.
