Barnes Trails Hike – Kamloops Trails
On a hot summer morning we hiked the Barnes Lake Trails, starting from Barnhartvale Road. We hiked a counter-clockwise loop onto Trail #2 through the open grasslands hills.
Our loop route was 6.8 km taking less than 2 hours. On a cooler day we opt for the longer outer loop. Along the way we met a few hikers and some horseback riders. The grasslands were dry, but there were some wildflowers, insects, and birds, including woodpeckers and bluebirds.

Doug writes for Kamloops Trails, a not-for-profit (and ad free) website, offering information on trails, waterways, routes, featured spots, viewpoints, and explorations in the outdoors in the Kamloops area (and beyond).
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/My Blog Posts
