Oroville-Osoyoos Border Crossing-
Hwy 3-Nighthawk Border Crossing-Oroville
Winding roads and nary a car make this a blissful ride, traveling along scenic shorelines with cliff, mountain and vineyard views. In case you care to stretch your legs, you’ll be passing the Similkameen trailhead right off the Loomis-Oroville Rd. Though a short ride, the two border crossings have unpredictable wait times, so you may wish to save the route for a day when you don’t have somewhere to be.
Directions: From Oroville, take Hwy 97 north to the border at Osoyoos. Watch for signs to Hwy 3 and follow it west for approximately 22.5 km (14 miles). Look for Nighthawk border-crossing signs and head south on Nighthawk Road. You’ll reach Loomis-Oroville Rd 2 miles south of the border crossing where you will go east. This route will take you along the scenic Similkameen River back into Oroville.
Time: 1 hour (depending on border crossing waits) Distance: 36 miles
