McArthur Island in Winter - Kamloops Trails

McArthur Island in Winter – Kamloops Trails

Doug Smith  December 14, 2022 at 9:00 am

When conditions are difficult for hiking, we sometimes walk around McArthur Island once or twice.   The walking path is often kept clear and we can enjoy the trees, the river, and the views along the way.  

On the former golf course, now a disc golf course area, there are a variety of trees, including some weeping willows.    There is also at least one larch along the path.  

The featured stars of the circuit are the big willows and cottonwood trees overlooking the river bank.  

McArthur Island is great spot for a quiet walk, especially when the sun shines in winter.    All photos taken by the author.    Click an image for a lightbox view and a caption.

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:
