Rose Hill Trails – Kamloops Trails

From Rose Hill Park a  number of informal trails and routes go east, west, and north and some of the trails can be combined to make a loop route, or an out-and-back route across the hills.    On a November day I watched for trails heading toward Juniper Ridge and at each junction, I made eclectic choices, eventually doing a loop route.  

Part of the plan was to hike a known route on a ridge overlooking the valley,  so I cut across the open hillsides to the east end of the ridge.  

This was a quiet hike on a sunny day on the Rose Hill slopes.  


There are a series of fine viewpoints across the valleys.  

At the western edge of the slope break, I stopped to enjoy the views, then turned back toward the parking area at Rose Hill Park, completing a shorter hike on a cool, sunny day.

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:
