Red Hill Ramble – Kamloops Trails

With snow covering the hills, we chose to do an on-the-snow hike in the Lac du Bois Grasslands.   The parking area for Red Hill is about 5.5 km from the cattleguard.   Faint trails go around either side of Red Hill. 

Our route was around the north side of Red Hill, then around the large pond.  Hidden from the roads, this is a peaceful and scenic spot.   

We did a loop route through the hills as the low winter sun shone through clouds. 

We hiked past a second pond on the east side of the second hill, then looped back. 

There are no trails on the east side, but it is moderate hiking though the grassland and sagebrush hills.  

We continued past the east side of Red Hill and back to the trailhead.   The loop route was about 4 km, just right for a cool winter day, hiking on the snow.

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/
