Lumby, BC

BC, Canada

The friendly community of Lumby, BC, is located at the north end of the beautiful Okanagan Valley just a short drive (25 km/16 mi.) east of the community of Vernon .

Although the village was incorporated in 1956, its history dates back to 1893 when the town site of forty acres was surveyed and named "Lumby". Prior to that, a small settlement of pioneer farmers and gold miners lived in White Valley, whose beginning commenced with the Cherry Creek gold strike in 1862.

Park in Lumby, BC

Considered the 'Gateway to the Monashees', Lumby is situated at the convergence of the Coldstream, Creighton and Trinity valleys. The Monashee Mountain (Mountains of Peace) offer unlimited outdoor recreation. Shimmering lakes nestle in the mountains and streams and rivers flow to the valleys. The area around Lumby is one of British Columbia's undiscovered gems!

In Lumby you can pan for gold, stroll our historical mural walk and the Salmon Trail, go camping and hiking or arrange to tour the old mining digs in nearby Cherryville. Lumby is the Trail Capital of Canada, and from here you can get-away on one of over a hundred trails that meander throughout the Monashee. The waters are ideal for fishing and canoeing, and as the eastern most spawning point for Chinook salmon, it's no wonder they chose this place to begin an exciting journey.
