Buse Hill Hike – Kamloops Trails
A good hike in spring is the route to the top of Buse Hill. The trail starts on the Robbins Range Road and climbs to the top of the steep bluffs looking east. Buse Protected Area (BC Parks) includes Buse Lake and Buse Hill. We hiked up the main double track for 2 km to the viewpoint, then explored some side routes. All photos by the author.

From the top of the hill the Buse Pillar stands to the west. A single track trail can be hiked over to the area above the pillar. The cliffs extend east and west overlooking Barnhartvale and the South Thompson River Valley. On a day with good weather, the views extend in 3 directions.

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
