Thompson River Ramble (on a Windy Day)
In spring the snow and ice clears off the wide beaches between the Airport and the floodlands areas toward Cooney Bay so we can hike on the Rivers Trail along the dike and pick the junctions that parallel the beach.
By staying left, but not going onto the beach, we can follow trails through the cottonwoods and flood channels, bearing west toward the West Beaches.
For more information on this route, use the search function for maps, directions, images, and more posts. (West Beaches, Rivers Trail, Tranquille…)
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
