Summer at SilverStar: Taking the slower hiking route has its scenic rewards
By MARK MATTHEWS
SilverStar is famous in the summer for its ridiculously fun bike park, but the hiking is often overlooked by the large influx of people who come up just to ride.
This was my third time at the resort in the summer and first time on the hiking trails. We had the opportunity to sample everything, from the bike park to the scenic hiking loops. We were blessed with beautiful Okanagan weather and saw the resort from a whole new perspective. Hiking up to the peak at sunrise was one of my favourite moments all weekend!
After a quick evening hike, we enjoyed some drinks and a meal at The Bulldog. We were conveniently staying a stone’s throw away at the Snow Bird Lodge. There are also an additional 26 hotels and motels in Vernon.
That's what is so great about the village. It may be small, but it has everything you need. Our Saturday evening hike and dinner was just what we needed to wind down after a jam-packed day of adventures.
