Individual Trail

BC-Kamloops/Thompson / Lac le Jeune

25 min driving from Downtown Kamloops

Enjoy a leisurely walk counter-clockwise around McConnell lake until taking the fork at the southmost tip of the lake. Upon trekking up a short and steep section, turn right onto the 4x4ing road on the Stake Lake Winter Recreational trail. Behind the first map that will be on your left, take the trail into the bush on the snowshoe route to the Basalt Cliffs. Follow the rim of this mountain for spectacular views of both Stake Lake and Lac le Jeune before returning to the opposite side of the cliff and turning left to reconnect with the short steep connector trail back onto the lake. There are numerous map posts throughout the Stake Lake Rec Area to aid in navigation, but GPS is still highly suggested.
