Stake Lake Loops – Kamloops Trails

Doug Smith  July 17, 2021 at 5:00 pm

We hike, bike, cross country ski, snowshoe, and paddle in the Stake Lake Trails system.    In summer we sometimes paddle around the lake 1-3 times, then we go for a hike on the trails.   On this warm summer day, I paddled twice around the lake in calm conditions. 

Each loop is about 2.25 km.  

We secured the boat then hiked on the double track trails, but we also went onto a single track snowshoe trail too.  

The hike added another 5 km.  

Along the way, we stopped to enjoy wildflowers, pollinators, and the forest.   Click an image for a caption.

We will be back for another duathlon – paddle then hike over the summer months.

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/
