There is a maze of old roads and ATV tracks in the hills west of the Coquihalla Highway and below the flanks of Greenstone Mountain. The trails also extend north towards Chuwhels Mountain. For the sake of clarity, we will call the northern end of this area the Outer Inks Lakes Trails. The Greater Kamloops Motorcycle has a number of marked ATV trails in this area, some of which follow roads and tracks, and some that are really suited only to motorcycles. Mountain bikers can ride down these ATV tracks, but many of them climb straight up steep hills. The map included here shows most of the main roads and double tracks of the area. Between each of the main routes are numerous single tracks, some named by GKMA and some not. For explorers to the area, start with the main tracks and visit the lakes, ponds, and large marshes along the routes. A circle route can be created for any distance from 2km to 15km. All roads/tracks were walked with a GPSr and the data was downloaded into Google Earth. Tracks were then redrawn onto a Google Earth map projection as a background image. Over time, we will add more detail to the map as we explore the area on foot or on mountain bike. At this point the roads are icy, but as the snows accumulate, they will be suitable for snowshoeing or cross country skiing. Click on the image to enlarge it.
We will continue to return to these wooded slopes in different seasons, especially in the shoulder season when there is no one around.
