North Vista Hike – Kamloops Trails
On a snowy and cold winter day we hiked a loop route starting at the Doc Findlay Trailhead in Kenna Cartwright Park. Our route was across the northeast shoulder of Mt. Dufferin, an sidehill area of sheltered douglas fir forest.
We enjoyed the route – Upper Doc Findlay – Upper Doug Daws – North Vista – Ruffed Grouse – Ponderosa – Upper Doc Findlay. There are many variations possible. In winter we usually follow the stomped in trails, where possible.
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
