Hiked up here on a cool and sunny afternoon. The ground was soft with all the rain and snow, but a great view at the top....don't miss it

Can be used year round, several hikers all ages just watch out for the cyclists and both use the trails. Often go around ten in the morning and do a two hike. Several people use the trails all ages, young families take children in packs on front or back, lots of dogs enjoy the park usually on leash no problems.... More

Very large hiking areas with multiple trails! Trails are well labelled with name and difficulty. Many people access the trails for hiking and mountain biking!

We parked at the pullout by the jail for a quick (2.5km) loop. Great views on a sunny day. Also a picnic table at the top if you want to go up there with a packed lunch.

Fantastic views of Kamloops and the Thompson River Valley. Free parking. Accessible from the city if you don't mind the climb / hike to the top. Worth the hike!

For being right in the city limits and easily accessed from numerous points, you can still enjoy a variety of wildlife and different terrains, whether you are walking or biking. The trails are abundant.

Everything is marked and you can print a map out online. It takes about an hour and half to go around the whole thing regardless of which trails you take and there are many different options.

Lots of hiking and biking trails, some of the best views in Kamloops. There are open area trails and some nicely forested.
