Coyote Crossing Hike Description

The Coyote Crossing hike is a fun outdoor activity in Kamloops that will allow you to experience the natural beauty of the valley landscape surrounding the city, no matter if you are travelling by foot or by bike. Setting out from the parking area, the trail passes behind the arena and begins to gradually climb uphill along the creek. As you make your way up to the highpoint of the trail near Juniper Park, you will be inundated with amazing views that sweep across the rolling hills of the grassland landscape surrounding you. Once you have reached the terminus of the trail, turn around and make your way back downhill along the creek to return to the parking area where you began.
