Cinnamon Ridge/Hoodoos Ridge Ascent
BC-Kamloops/Thompson / 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.

4600 Tranquille Rd, Kamloops, BC V2B
1) From downtown Kamloops, cross the main bridge to the North Shore, following Fortune Dr.
2) Continue onto Tranquille Rd as you pass 8th Street on the right, and then later the airport on the left.
4a) IF HIKING WITH OUR GROUP, turn RIGHT on Ord Rd (dirt road approx 2.7 km from the airport turn-off) and park just on other side of the railway tracks after driving up Ord a few hundred meters. The GPS Address for this location is approximately 3505 Ord Rd. This is where we begin our hike. It will add 1.08 km to our trek, but will mean we are not illegally crossing the tracks.
4b) If **NOT** hiking with our group, it is possible to illegally cut across the railway tracks farther up Tranquille Rd. While we do not officially condone this, it will cut 30 minutes off your hike. Continue driving on Tranquille Rd for another 1.1 km past Ord Rd and park on the right. Head across the railway tracks on the right to meet the trailhead.
