Google Map for Kal Park routes

​​​​This Google map shows you the direction sign locations for the 4.0 km and the 5.8 km routes, that Vernon Secondary School use when hosting Cross Country Running races in Kalamalka Lake Provincial Park. Both follow the same course (red) until they get to the park map and trail junction with direction signs #24 & #25.

Runners & Coaches:

  • Follow the direction signs from "VSS XC Start Line", to "VSS XC all #1" through "VSS XC all #23"(red), and then either the "VSS XC 4.0 km ..."(green) or "VSS XC 5.8 km ..."(blue), to "VSS XC Finish line".
