Trail Description:

A lovely variety of forested trail loops, to several smaller summits, and rock bluffs, overlooking the Spallumcheen Valley above Armstrong.

Named after Rose Swanson, the daughter of Catherine and Augustus Shubert, famous Overlanders who homesteaded in the area in 1862. Mt. Swanson is accessed from the trail heading south from the right/west entrance of the parking area, and Mt. Rose is accessed from the trail on the left/east side. The two trails join to make a large loop, with two alternate side loops off each creating options for extended trips. More information available in the Vernon Outdoor Club’s Hiking Guide available at most bookshops. A trail map is posted at the trailhead and each junction.
