The section of the Kettle Valley Railway from Penticton to Osoyoos became known as the Osoyoos Subdivision. This subdivision encompasses 58 kilometers through the best of the Okanagan, including orchards and vineyards, sandy beaches and warm lakes, the bird and wildlife sanctuary of Vaseux Lake, and south of Oliver, Canada's only true desert. Much of this area is fairly well inhabited, and the railbed at times can be difficult to follow. Successful efforts are being made to preserve the right-of-way through this area, but for now a fair bit of detouring off the railway is required. This unfortunately necessitates you to leave the relatively flat grade of the railbed to tackle the heavier grades of the highway. However, this detouring is not a totally disappointing feature as you do not find too many fruit stands on the KVR!
