Anderson Creek Loop - Kamloops Trails

Anderson Creek Loop – Kamloops Trails

In winter we look for areas that retain snow, but allow for vehicle access and parking.   Bonus features include a stomped-in track, a variety of habitat, wildlife signs, peace and quiet, and route choices.    The double and single tracks of the northwest side of Hull Hill are a good choice when the conditions are right.   On this mid-February day, the Goose Lake Road was in good shape and there were some good parking spots by the gate.   The main routes were stomped in and the sun shone through filtered clouds.

The main double track was well-defined so I followed it, crossing Anderson Creek on a bridge and continuing on for 1.3 km.

I had been up the slopes of Hull Hill last month,  so this time, I visited the Jack Booth homestead first.

Each year the roof seems to come down more as the beams rot under the weight of the snow.   I set my own track from the homestead to the creek.

Anderson Creek was flowing as I recrossed to the far side

I found a user-made track in the cutblocks on the west side so I followed it, though I knew the area from previous explorations.

A good track crosses the west side of the cutblock that takes us back to the parking area so I followed it, content to do a shorter loop on a pleasant day on the flanks of Hull Hill, the Anderson Creek Loop.

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:
