Snowy Hikes (on the Recovery Road)
After being released from the hospital, I was allowed to walk/hike, but with moderate distances and routes. I was not allowed to drive for a month so getting to some trails was a challenge on some days, but I was able to find snowy trails and routes to hike each day.
On one of these days, we walked the West Highland Trail in Aberdeen. This is a well-maintained paved pathway. A single loop is about 1.7 km.
On a sunny day we walked on the Goose Lake Road. Various distances are possible and the lower (east end) of the road is kept plowed all winter.
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
