On a Mission Flats Hike
At the first part of March we hiked the sandy beaches and river shoreline in the Mission Flats area starting on Mission Flats Road just before the landfill entrance. The beaches area is across from the airport and we can enjoy the wide views to the north, west, and east. Some ice flanks the river’s edge, but the beaches were dry.
This is an enjoyable 5.5 km flat and easy hike.
It was a sunny day without too much wind at the end of winter.

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
