Individual Trail

BC-Kamloops/Thompson / Tranquille

29 min driving from Downtown Kamloops

Located in the Lac Du Bois Grasslands Protected Area, this is easily one of Kamloops' best single-track hidden gems. The trail begins as a meandering walkway at the base of the mountain before shortly becoming an intense ongoing uphill grind! Pass over a barbed wire fence about half a kilometre in, nestled amongst the dense network of sage brush, and prepare to sweat!

Reach a stellar viewpoint approximately two kilometres into the trail. It's a minor 200 meter detour, and absolutely worth the extra time. After continuing uphill, the trail begins to level out substantially and becomes a gorgeous ridgeline walk with numerous lookout points from the Ponderosa Pine forest.

After climbing to the bench and lookout at 5.22 km, sit back and relax as you've made it to the summit! Pack up and head back the same route home, or continue straight and follow all right-forks down the eastern double-wide 4x4ing track to the main road. If you go this route, there will be approximately 3.8 km of road-walking to get back to the parking lot.
