The Save Carmi XC Trails Campaign

The Trail Alliance, together with members of the Upper Carmi Resident's Association and local outdoor recreationalists are actively working toward effecting change in BC Timber Sales' Carmi XC Rec. Trails Logging Plans.

The charge is being led by our fantastic member Neda Joss. Neda has created a website showing how to support the proposal here - please check it out!

Federation of Mountain Clubs of BC Newsletters

The South Okanagan Trail Alliance sits on the board of directors with the Federation of Mountain Clubs of BC. The FMCBC, encompassing some 50 BC Outdoor Rec. groups, creates an excellent biannual newsletter called Cloudburst - that I highly recommend!

Okanagan Trails Galore

Let be your trail-guide to hiking, biking, snowshoeing and xc-sking in the South Okanagan!



The South Okanagan hosts an active and growing equestrian group. Horses have been creating sweet singletrack for a 200+ years in the valley! Read up on how we're working with riders and our inclusive attitudes toward equestrians and their amazing trail culture in the South Okanagan.

Hiking & Trail-Running

Pretty much the foundation of trail development for many decades, the Okanagan Valley's large contingent of hikers have quietly flagged and maintained trails 'under the radar' for over a half century in the South Okanagan.  We embrace their efforts and invite hikers and runners to join SOTA.

Mountain Biking

Local cyclists have built and maintained valley trails for many years, but it wasn't until 2009, with the formation of the Penticton & Area Cycling Association that legitimate / sanctioned trails began to come into their own.  The South Okanagan Trail Alliance is an off-road evolution of the bike club.
