Lodgepole Lake Loops - Kamloops Trails

Lodgepole Lake Loops – Kamloops Trails

Doug Smith  July 27, 2021 at 9:00 am

On a hot summer morning I chose to drive up to Lodgepole Lake to do some loops – twice around the lake in a kayak, then once around the lake on the Lodgepole Lake Trail.    The trailhead starts at the end of the Recreation Site campground and winds around the lake.    The loop route is about 2 km.  

There is a lot of windfall all around the lake, but it has been cleared by volunteers and the Rec Site contractor. 

contThe trail comes out to the Forest Service Road and I walked along the road back to the trailhead.     

Three loops amounted to about 4.5 km, a shorter outing, but just right for a day that would be about 46 degrees C.

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/
