Individual Trail

Thompson/Kamloops / Tranquille

30 min driving from Kamloops,BC

This short hike in the Lac du Bois grasslands begins crossing a flat meadow which is reminiscent of the old wild west, before beginning a mild ascent over the first hill, down past an old abandoned car, and up the final ascent for a panoramic view over the Thompson River. Tranquille Farm (Padova) is visible in the foreground, and the city of Kamloops a distant afterthought on the horizon. The trail is marked primarily with usage rather than signage; however, there are a couple signs with arrows to keep hikers on the right path.
