Snowy Jacko Lake – Kamloops Trails
On a late winter windy day I put on my microspikes and hiked up to Jacko Lake from the Lac le Jeune Road. The access road is being used by the Trans Mountain Pipeline workers for the first short section, but the road to the boat launch was not plowed. Vehicles have been driving in there on the snow and ice, but I parked at the bottom and hiked up to the lake.
I walked along the lake and the lakeshore for a ways, then returned down the road:
Although the day was windy and the weather was stormy at higher elevations, some blue skies and some sunshine appeared at time on this 1.5 hour hike.
I paddle on Jacko Lake several times a year. Last year the first ice-off date was about April 15, so I will be back then to paddle twice around the shoreline.
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
