Pathways in your community

Multi-use pathways

Multi-use pathways and trails throughout the region offer a great opportunity to travel to walk for leisure or for travel to your destinations without a vehicle. They also provide a space separated from the roadway for people on bikes who are more comfortable riding off of the roadway.

Paths marked as shared-use are used for walking, jogging, bike riding and skating, so it is important to be aware of the rules and etiquette to ensure your trip is safe and enjoyable. Check out the City of Kelowna’s multi-use pathway video for important rules of the road.
