Individual Trail

Thompson/Kamloops / Tranquille

31 min driving from Downtown Kamloops

The view at the summit of Dewdrop is one of the most phenomenal in the Lac Du Bois Grasslands Protected Area. This is the alternative, and much easier, route to the top. The trail is a double-wide 4x4ing track with very few lookouts until the final view a the summit. While it's an easier route, the most scenic and nicer option is the Dewdrop West single-track trail. This trail connects, and it is possible to do a complete loop, with a 3.8 km of road-walking at the end.

Begin your journey at the East Trailhead, and stay on the main 4x4ing road (keeping left), until approximately 6.2 km. Make a sharp left onto the single-track for a quick 500 meter walk to the stunning summit viewpoint!

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.
