Hikers and cyclists will enjoy a cup of tea and a view from the summit of the Fur Brigade Trail later this month.
The Trail of the Okanagans Society will hold its Tea at the Top event on Sunday, May 26 at the viewpoint of the trail.
David Gregory, a Summerland historian, will present some facts about the history of the trail.
There are two options to reach the summit.
One is an interpretive hike from the trailhead near Hardy Falls south of Peachland.
Participants are asked to arrive by 10:30 and park and carpool to trailhead. Bring a bag lunch, water and optional hiking poles. Dress in sturdy shoes and for the weather. It is a steep, 3.5-kilometre hike to the summit. Participants will be back at their cars by 3:30 p.m.
Another option is a bike ride from the Priest Camp to the summit. Take Garnet Valley Road north of Summerland. Priest Camp is just past the dam. Arrive at 11:30 a.m. and cycle the four kilometres to the summit over a rough road. Bring a bag lunch, helmet and sturdy bike. Participants will be back at their cars by 3 p.m.
Tea and goodies by donation or by becoming a member of our society. The cost is $20 for three-year membership.
