Can you drive to the top of Little White Mountain?
Set high near the central Okanagan Valley, on the eastern shore of Okanagan Lake, the road to the summit is totally unpaved. A 4x4 vehicle is required to complete the drive, because the road gets progressively rougher and the last 5km or so is narrow and has some large rocks, taking you along the edge of a cliff.

The drive is not easy and very steep in parts, hitting an 18% of maximum gradient through some of the ramps. Starting from Kelowna, a city in the south of Canada’s British Columbia province, the road to the summit is 25.1 km (15.59 miles) long.
Is the road to Little White Mountain open?
The road is seasonally closed. It’s open from July through October. The drive offers stunning views. From the peak are some amazing 360-degree views of the lake and valley. The peak is named after Thomas White, Minister of the Interior from 1887-1888.
