Wandering on Dewdrop Ridge – Kamloops Trails

I spent half a day with a producer from CFJC TV recording footage for an video to be broadcast later in the month.   We hiked up and along the ridge taking videos and flying the drone.    The footage will be edited back at the studio.   While on the ridge, I took some photos and recorded some action video, shared here.

From the top of Dewdrop Ridge, Cooney Bay and Kamloops Lake lies in the valley 1 km away. 

From the west end of Dewdrop Ridge we looked down at Battle Bluff and Kamloops Lake as it extends west toward Savona.

We enjoyed the wildflowers, butterflies, birds, and trees as we hiked our route.  

A short video is shared here.    The CFJC video will be aired soon and a link will be provided afterward/  

Dewdrop Ridge is one of my favorite hikes, one that I do several times each year.  

To hike Dewdrop Ridge, take the Frederick Road and park at the first pullout on the right.    Cross the road and climb the open slopes, bearing southeast.    A faint trail winds along the rim for 1 km.

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/
