Walloper Creek Loop Snowshoe – Kamloops Trails
From Lodgepole Lake we snowshoed known tracks/routes, combined together for a 2+ hour loop. The routes are a combination of user tracks, motorcycle trails, marshes, and forest service branch roads. We encountered a few new fallen trees across the routes, but we just created go-around tracks. For anyone out to find a good snowshoe route, its best just to follow stomped-in tracks while keeping your sense of direction, even in the forest.

The Lodgepole Lake area is at 4600 feet and has some of the best snowshoeing in the greater area.
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
