Rex Virtue rediscovers an abandoned Mine on Blue Grouse Mountain near Kelowna

Rex Virtue is an outdoor adventurer in British Columbia. He can be found cutting across country where no man has made a trail or re-discovering abandoned mines like the one found on this GPS track, Rex doesn’t let cold, damp, or heat keep him from new discoveries. He was one of the first explorers hitting the trails on Terrace Mountain after it was blackened by wild fire in summer 2009.

The GPS track below takes you for an adventure to the top of Terrace Mountain and circles around it with a side trip to Blue Hawk Mine on Blue Grouse Mountain near Kelowna. The track begins on Beaver Lake Main Forest Service Road near Bear Creek Provincial Park on Okanagan Lake.
