Named after Rose Swanson, the daughter of Catherine and Augustus Shubert, famous Overlanders who homesteaded in the area in 1862. Mt. Swanson is accessed from the trail heading south from the right/west entrance of the parking area, and Mt. Rose is accessed from the trail on the left/east side. The two trails join to make a large loop, with two alternate side loops off each creating options for extended trips.
Notice the shape of the trail system? I had a good laugh when I saw the words "Trail Head" on the tip!

There's some sort of tower up here, not sure exactly what it is!
First impressions....WOW!!! What a beautiful view, I could see all the way down to the Northern end of Okanagan lake. Let's zoom in for a closer look...
After a quick lunch break and some more photos, It was time to head back down the mountain. The nice thing about this trail network is that it forms a huge loop, so it's a completely different experience on the way down!
This outhouse has seen better days...
