Myra Bellevue Provincial Park – a beautiful provincial park with a number of trails, the Kettle Valley railway and Myra Canyon. Dogs must be on-leash throughout the park and backcountry areas are not suitable for any pets due to wildfire issues and potential conflicts with bears.

Vernon (more info here)
Silver Star Foothills Trail – this is part of the Grey Canal trails and is very popular with dog-walkers. Expect stunning panoramic views and dogs on-leash.
Kalamalka Lake – the dog beach lies between Cosen Bay and Juniper Bay. Since the beach is stony, you will need appropriate footwear if you’d like to splash around with your pet.
Ellison Provincial Park – Sandy Beach is dog-friendly. Access the beach by taking the trail leading out of the campground, near sites 11 and 12.
Middleton Mountain Trails – dogs are required to be on-leash. These trails offer stunning views of the local area and are home to a variety of birds.
