Description Of This Tour

Once known as Millionaire’s Row, Prairie Valley has a rich and fascinating history. Join your personal guide David Gregory for a hike along the Trans Canada Trail. You’ll learn about the history of early Summerland, its fruit growing industry and colourful characters such as Sam McGee (Cremation of Sam McGee); R.B Angus, co-founder of the CPR and national President of the Bank of Montreal; Sir Herbert Holt President of the Royal Bank; Sir Edmund Osler, president of the Dominion Bank; First Nations heritage, the geology of the valley and the Summerland water system.

Please be prepared for all sorts of weather – hot, sunny, windy, cold and rain too! Dress in layers and bring all-weather clothing, sunscreen, a sun hat, sturdy hiking footwear, a snack and at least 1 litre of water for all tours and events. For longer walks and hikes you will need at least 2 litres of water, as well as snacks and a bagged lunch (if not provided). Cameras, binoculars and plant and bird field guides are optional but add to your enjoyment. Please note any additional items to bring if applicable for your tour.
