Trail Description


20 min driving from Downtown Kamloops

With over 10,000 years of erosion, the clay benches from the South Thompson River/Glacial Lake Thompson have created these incredibly unique formations. The hike itself is very challenging due to steep, dry, slippery sections. Wear hiking boots with ankle support and bring your trail sense. The trail is marked by usage, not signage, and can be very difficult to follow after exiting the gully.
