Above Timber Lake – Kamloops Trails

In late winter we drove up the Timber Lake Road and parked at a junction on the southwest side of the communications tower hill.    There are many miles of double tracks, single tracks, old ski trails, and routes connecting to the Outer Inks and Chuwhels Mountain Trails.    Almost none of the routes are signed nor flagged and there are numerous junctions to figure out, but over time, we have developed loop routes.    At this time of the year, we were trying to follow boot tracks, snowmobile tracks, or snowshoe tracks, connecting known routes, but we did one section over the west side of the hill which had no tracks and had some more difficult conditions, but the rest of the route was perfect for a day of snowshoeing in the high forest.

Some photos and some video footage was recorded to give a sense of the moments on the snow:

Doug started exploring this area in 1976 and continues to follow tracks and routes wherever they lead, with the aid of map, compass, GPSr and camera. After many dead-ends, but also many discoveries, he chose to share this information.

The Kamloops Trails website has a massive number of interesting posts and would be of interest to anyone in Kamloops who enjoys the outdoors. Visit the Kamloops Trails website at: http://www.kamloopstrails.net/
