On Edith Lake - Kamloops Trails

On Edith Lake – Kamloops Trails

Edith Lake is close to town, providing quick access, but it can be a busy place for fishermen and campers.   For this reason we usually paddle the lake in the off-season.   On a cool and windy October day, I launched my kayak into the headwinds for two loops around the lake.

There is a long arm of the lake that was partly sheltered from the winds.   The lake is shallower there so fishermen don’t often venture that way.

A side arm was completely protected from winds.

Twice around the lakeshore is about 7 km, a good outing for fall paddling.

This was Day 61 of paddling in 2020.   A handful of days were left as the temperatures dropped and windy days followed.

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/
