Sunrsie Mountain


20 min from Downtown Kamloops
2593 Pratt Rd, Kamloops, BC V2C 5T8
This arduous trek that begins at Erin Valley is best done with a car parked at each end of the trailhead. It follows an old 4x4ing road into grazing lands, eventually leading to a very clearly gated off area. From here, head to the right into the forest until reconnecting with 4x4ing track again and heading north. Finding a cairn at a trail fork, head directly up the shale patch and follow the ridgeline to the summit. The trail from here becomes quite a bit clearer as the north route is more popularly done. There is even a flagged route if you're lucky enough to find it. Once a bit more experienced with the trail, doing it in reverse from Ronde Ln to Erin Valley would be much easier on the knees!

Bring our GPS log - no exceptions! Even we had a few moments when we were route finding instead of on-trail. If you find a better, more well-used route, we'd love to hear about it. There are a number of forks in the trail, so it is quite easy to get turned around!

GPS Notes
We have often color-coded our GPX tracks. While it is not always the case, we have tried to use the following convention on our newer maps:

Green/Blue: human-verified by our volunteers.
Purple: overgrown trail, bushwhack, or on private property.
Red: default color or not reality-checked
Yellow: Road
Other Colors: May have been satellite traced or imported from third party sources.

While we strongly believe our GPS are accurate, please be aware that no logging system is perfect and to be aware of potential errors. Use at your own risk.
