It would appear a mysterious artist is building and then putting up fairy doors along a popular Okanagan hiking trial.

A collection of the miniature doors — which can have a small space in them for people to leave gifts for the 'fairies' — have been installed at the base of trees in West Kelowna's Rose Valley Regional Park

Siara Less was out for her first hike ever on the trail last week when she not only stumbled on the doors, but the man who made them.

“He was adding to his previous doors,” she told iNFOnews.ca. “We asked if he was the one who built them and he said yes, he’s added quite a few down that trail. He said it was a project he liked working on and was going to be adding just a few more.”

The doors include some with stairs and one has a sign reading “there is magic in the air.”

“I thought they were really cool,” Less said. “It definitely brightens up the hike. It’s something different to see when you don’t get out of the house much anymore. It definitely puts a smile on people’s faces.”

“Some other people were taking a look at them as well, so you could tell other people found them pretty cute and picture worthy,” she said.

She didn’t get the artist’s name so he’s anonymous for now.
