Kamloops Trails is a not-for-profit (and ad free) website which offers some information on trails, waterways, routes, featured spots, viewpoints, and explorations in the outdoors in the area (and beyond). It focuses on hikes, paddles, and routes to explore on foot or by canoe/kayak, but many routes can also be explored on mountain bikes, so some backroad/sideroad routes are also now included. Every route listed has been personally explored. The site is not on any way meant to be a definitive guide to trails and routes in the area. It is really a blog, a journal of explorations over many years and so each article reflects the conditions, routes, access, and specific information of the time of writing. Over time, things change so note the date of the article and check for a newer one. Older articles are not rewritten, although a note may be added if something is brought to my intention.
We rarely use the Odometer to mark our route, but a GPSr is often used and so coordinates are sometimes provided where they can be of help. Maps and photos are provided where they are available or can be created. Posts are arranged in order of their writing and usually follow that particular exploration so the best way to find information is to enter some words into the Search Bar (at the upper right). Additional short articles can be found in the Rambles (right side widget), which feature plants, animals, and naturalist topics related to what was seen along the trails and waterways. All rights are reserved for the material. Please do not distribute without permission. See you on the trails.
Keep close to Nature’s heart… and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.
