Penticton is a city in Canada.

Hitching out

People frequently travel all the way between Kelowna and Osoyoos so rides out of Penticton are frequent.

South towards Osooyos

Highway 97 is your best bet. The intersection of Channel Parkway and Green Mountain Rd is a good spot to thumb. Just get on Parkway, to head south. Rides are fairly easy to get here.

North towards Kelowna

Eckhardt Ave heads NW and becomes highway 97. Once you are up out of the city center, the hitching is really easy. The corner where Eckhardt becomes 97, after the bridge, works well.

Hitching in

Just ask to be dropped near the highway if you aren't staying overnight.

Places to avoid

Accommodation and Sleep

There are camp grounds around.
