Around Batchelor Hill - Kamloops Trails

Around Batchelor Hill – Kamloops Trails

Doug Smith  March 16, 2023 at 9:00 am

On a sunny late winter day I hiked a series of single track trails on the snow around Batchelor Hill.

There was a fresh snowfall on all of the trails, so winter boots with microspikes were used, but the going was slow.    The first 2 km section was around the eastern slopes of Batchelor Hill to trails that wind around the north side.

This section is called the Bighorn Loop by the mountain bikers, but we have been calling it Batchelor Pass for 50 years.  

This is a moderate route with no difficult hills, one to enjoy in the shoulder season on dry trails.    All photos by the author.    Click an image for a lightbox view and a caption.

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:
