Easy trail! Catching the sunset at the Sunset trail was amazing! I highly recommend.

Very nice trail that offers a really cool view of some lakes and the mountains, along with Kamloops. There are multiple options tthroughout this trail so be sure to stay on the All Trails map to ensure you're sticking to the desired 'moderate' rating and distance. At one point near the top, it is very easy to miss the trail to continue through the suggested double loop. Once I realized it, we backtracked and continued through. however, there are some real steep treks down and you need to be real careful! Otherwise, really cool trail. Be sure not to cross the barbed wire and end up in Kamloops correctional!

The view at the top was nice, but there were several dogs off leash that kept running at me and my on-leash dog with the owners yelling a warning that their dogs are not friendly. Will not be returning.

Over 40 km of trails with lots of variety in trail difficulty. Great for trail running and hiking. Dog friendly as well. Was here on January 4th - trails are packed down and icy.

This park has a maze of trails for all hikers (easy to extremely difficult). The Reservoir Trail doubles as a road for BC Hydro vehicles. They were doing work recently so the trail is very muddy and torn up a bit. We took-in very little as our party had a couple of older hikers found the "easy" trail difficult...the elevation change was strenuous. Beautiful area with great views. Pretty good "urban" trail (you never get way from the sights, sounds and sometimes smells of Kamloops).

Not a bad close proximity trail that's easily accessible to Kamloops. Great if you need to get a good walk in and it offers a few interesting views of the town and the jail. Seems pretty popular with the locals using varied disciplines of physical activity.

Great hike for my pup and me!

Little steep on your way down (after half point) other than that it's a pretty easy trail with gorgeous views of the city from the viewing platform...
