Return to the East Rim Trail
The East Rim Trail Loop is a favorite and it is one that I do two or three times each year. There are variations on the route chosen each time, but usually the trailhead off Whiteshield Crescent is the starting point and the loop includes crossing Peterson Creek and taking single tracks on the east side of the canyon rim down to the falls lookout, a descent down to the bottom of the canyon, and a climb back up.
Fall colors are part of the attraction of hiking Peterson Creek at this time of the year.
There are scenic spots along the whole trail. Click an image for a lightbox view and a caption.
And, a short video on this hike:
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
