    Dewdrop Range Trail

    The Dewdrop Range Trail is a 14.8 km out-and-back hiking route near Kamloops that climbs uphill into Lac du Bois Grasslands Provincial Park for some amazing views overlooking the Thompson Valley. This route features a large elevation gain and is fairly steep in certain areas, so make sure to wear proper hiking footwear and bring extra gear such as microspikes if you are looking to complete this hike in the shoulder seasons. Additionally, hikers should bring bear spray, as cougars and bears are sometimes spotted in the area.
