Lac du Bois Tower Loop Description

The Lac du Bois Tower Loop is a fun outdoor adventure that will take you through the undulating landscape to the northwest of the city with some amazing views across the valley. Setting out from the trailhead, make your way west and head right at the fork to begin your loop through the rolling green hills that characterize the landscape. The trail will follow a wide loop around the hilltop tower to your left as you head north along the creek. Reaching the northern tip of the trail, continue following it around the backside of the hill, where you will have some nice views across the valley and the city of Kamloops nestled within it. Follow the trail east to return to the parking area where you began your hike.
