Where: Penticton Channel walk
Start at: Industrial Place, Penticton.
Getting there: Drive South on Highway 97 to Penticton. Follow Highway 97 part of the way along the Channel parkway. Turn left on Fairview Road (just past Tim Hortons). Turn right at Industrial Avenue (first RT after Tim Hortons). Turn right on Industrial Place (right after Kenworth). Drive to the end of that section, past Midtown RV and turn off the road to the right. Park opposite the Ellis Creek dog park.
Walk: The starting place for our walk is a good place to park our cars and then we will walk and cross over to the West side of the River Channel. After we have crossed (at the traffic light) to Green Mountain Road, we will follow the walking trail south towards Skaha lake. Our walk will take us south past the new bridge and we will turn around and return on the same trail. This is a good place to look for hawks and sometimes bald eagles.
Trail Rating: 1B  Very little hill or stair climbing; almost entirely on pavement, probably suitable for baby stroller
After: We can walk back across the highway and visit Tim Hortons at Fairview Road.
Leader(s): Marion & Eric
