On the Snow in the Upper Grasslands

On the Snow in the Upper Grasslands

Doug Smith  February 7, 2023 at 8:25 am

In the hills to the south at the upper end of the grasslands are some routes we can only do in winter.    These routes will not be specified here and interested hikers or snowshoers will have to explore the areas on their own.   All of the routes start on public roads, then head off on snowed-in backroads.   If fences or gates are closed and/or signed, we don’t proceed, instead veering off to follow snowmobile or snowshoe tracks on double tracks and single tracks into the hills.   


On this day I followed a route I have been doing in winter for decades, past an old homestead. 

A few images are shared here.    Click an image for a lightbox view, a caption, and possibly some clues. 

A video of the hike is also shared here:

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/
