Island Lake – Grasslands Esker – Long Lake Loop
We hike through the middle grasslands area two or three times every year, starting from a parking area just off the Lac du Bois Road.
On this cool fall day we hiked past Island Lake over to the Grasslands Esker.
The esker runs from just below the Lac du Bois Road to Long Lake, winding down through the pothole ponds, moraines, and kames. We hiked along the esker, then went southeast toward a lookout hill over Long Lake.
contFrom Long Lake we looped back on a single track to the start, another great day of hiking in the Lac du Bois Grasslands.
This YouTube video includes some drone video footage over Long Lake, a favorite spot.
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
