Rattler Viewpoint – Kamloops Trails
At the start of November we hiked on the Stake Lake Trails. Our route was around the east side of the lake, past some iced-over bays.
The old track from the south to the top of the hill now appears to have been abandoned since it is covered in windfall. It appears that the way to the top of the viewpoint/lookout is by an off-piste ski trail or a snowshoe trail, both from the east side. We hiked back out by on the snowshoe trail.
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
