Individual Trail

Thompson/Kamloops / Padova

20 min driving from Downtown Kamloops

With over 10,000 years of erosion, the clay benches from the South Thompson River/Glacial Lake Thompson have created these incredibly unique formations. The hike itself is very challenging due to steep, dry, slippery sections. Wear hiking boots with ankle support and bring your trail sense. The trail is marked by usage, not signage, and can be very difficult to follow after exiting the gully.

GPS Notes
Most often when viewing our maps, trails marked in Green or Blue have been human-verified by our volunteers. A route in purple indicates an overgrown trail or a bushwhack. Otherwise, the tracks 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.
