Boyle Point Provincial Park - Kamloops Trails

Boyle Point Provincial Park – Kamloops Trails

Doug Smith  May 5, 2023 at 8:56 am

We spent a few days hiking on Denman and Hornby Islands in April.    Boyle Point Provincial Park is located at the south end of Denman Island    Trails wind through the douglas fir – hemlock – cedar forest, along the shores of some large marshes, and out to the rocky shoreline and seacliffs.

At the point we scrambled down to a small beach and over the rocks to Eagle Point, a rocky islet.   We had views to Georgia Strait, Lambert Channel, Hornby Island and the weathered and sculpted exposed cliffs.   All photos by the author.   Click an image for a lightbox view and a caption.

We hiked about 6 km on good trails.  We left another 6 km loop for the next time we hike on Denman Island.   This was one area of 6 that we hiked on the Islands.   The hike in Helliwell Park was better, but not by much and the hike to Tree Island was more dramatic and a much different type of hiking.     We have spent a week at a time hiking the Gulf Islands for decades.    The hikes on Denman and Hornby were some of the best, but there are more to do in future trips too.

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:
