If your traveling in this area (Osoyoos) THIS IS A MUST SEE. The most spectacular view, you can see all the way into Washington state.

What a great way to challenge your cycling abilities! Halfway up this 30Km hill is a lookout that offers a view of the valley second to none! Well worth the ride!

Doesn't get much better than this. 2 lookouts. Parking lot small if you go to the first one as you drive up the hill. Go a little farther and turn into the one that will be on the other side of the road . A bit more parking there if you can't get into the first one . Great views... More

This view over looking the lakes could easily be over looked, but make the effort it is worth it. USA on your left, Canada on your right. Stunning breath taking views, only 10 minutes from Osoyoos it is hard to believe the number of people who are regular holiday visitors and never experienced the stunning view of the area.

We chose to go down to Osoyoos from Kelowa via the 33 and over on the 3 just to see this much vaunted lookout. Time and trouble well spent as it really is this good. A big pull out area and warning when you are getting to it (from the east) so no trouble about access. And the view really... More

I have enjoyed the view from Anarchist Mountain numerous times and I never tire of it. A short 10 km from the town of Osoyoos is the view over the whole valley. There are pullouts on both sides of the road so it is safe. When heading uphill, watch closely for the signs as the pullout comes up quickly. It... More

A must visit spot when visiting the holiday town. Is a 10-minute drive up the mountain on the main highway on the east side of town. Parking can be tight and caution needed when exiting but the view is a 240-degree panorama of Osoyoos Lake, the town and neighboring Oroville (USA). Don't miss this.

A must-see! On a clear day you can see the whole of Osoyoos Lake, north to south, from up here. Heart-stopping view from the lookout after we wound up the hairpin curves on the east side of the lake. It's only about five kms, so doesn't take long from the town. We were struck by the number of homes on... More

We first saw the view after sunset on the drive to Red Mountain. On the drive back to Vancouver we stopped and got a good look in the afternoon.

The expansive view, a birds eye view of the south end of the Okanagan Valley, and love the mountains, Chopaka and Sleeping lady to the west. They are in Washington state above the Similkameen river, which flows into the Okanagan River below Oroville. A stunning view visited by many. Been there many, many times and take international visitors there so... More
