    Directions to Trailhead

    The Community Trail is a 13.4 km point-to-point hiking route just north of Kamloops, BC, that will allow you to experience the varied terrain and natural beauty of Lac du Bois Grasslands Provincial Park. Along the trail, you will traverse rolling grassland hills, hike past charming lakes, and make your way through the beautifully scenic forests that make up this gorgeous park. While this route description is for a one-way hike, you are more than able to complete the trail as a 26.8 km out-and-back if you feel up for a long-distance challenge.

    Route Description for Community Trail

    While the Community Trail is described as moderate in difficulty, this is largely due to its longer overall length as opposed to any real challenge along the trail. Hikers looking to complete a shorter out-and-back from the beginning of the route will find a pleasant hike that can be completed by hikers of most skill levels. The route sets out from the trailhead and initially passes through a beautifully scenic stretch of forest before passing by several picturesque lakes and heading into the open grassland. Here, you will descend down the hillside and cross over several bridges that span small creeks. Continue through the wide open grassland terrain, as you descend further downhill to eventually arrive at the end point of the hike. Remember to arrange a pick up, otherwise you will be hiking the 13.4 km back to the trailhead where you left your vehicle!
