Hayton 9 Oyama Lake Walking along the many trails in our sprawling municipality is a wonderful experience. Walkers and hikers are cautioned to be prepared for wildlife encounters at all times, and to ensure they have suitable clothing and supplies. There are miriad opportunities to swim and launch kayaks or canoes on our lakes - too numerous to mark on this guide. Please use caution. There are no life guards on duty. Our safe harbour on Okanagan Lake (see 19, E2) is currently being upgraded but is still fully operational. (No swimming inside the safe harbour). We ask that visitors take only photographs, and leave only footprints! Many of the trails, walkways and roads border on private property. Walkers and hikers are asked to respect boundaries at all times, keep animals leashed, use doggie bags and use own container for garbage disposal.
