Rattler Viewpoint Snowshoe – Kamloops Trails
Stake Lake (Overlander Ski Club) has expanded its snowshoe trails and last year we did a loop along Cow Creek and Spruce Canyon, then up to Rattler Viewpoint , and back on a loop route around the lake. We snowshoed the same route this year, following the Cow Creek Trail through the lodgepole pines.
A side trail winds up to the top of the hill at Rattler Viewpoint. From there we had a view west to Chuwhels Mountain.
This is a highly recommended route and a favorite. All photos by the author. Click an image for a lightbox view and a caption.
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
