Angel Springs: KLO Creek
Hike Length (oneway)
About The Hike
This route offers a substantially more enjoyable hike in than the route offered by the Trestles route. Beginning at the hairpin turn just after Field Rd on McCulloch Rd in East Kelowna, this moderate coniferous forest trail gives you the chance to witness interesting geological formations and natural springs.
At the springs, the water below the surface is heated geo-thermally to over 100°C. However, the above ground springs are lukewarm at about 25°C (even colder during spring runoff) and can be identified by orange-coloured tufa deposits that they have created. Tufa is a mineral formed when calcite crystallizes after water evaporation.
How To Get To Angel Springs: KLO Creek
From Downtown Kelowna take Pandosy St. South, then take a left onto K.L.O Rd. until you hit McCulloch Rd. Follow McCulloch Rd. for awhile until it starts to go down hill. Once you cross the bridge, park on the right side of the road where you can start this hike.
