Tom Moore Trail Description
Although the Tom Moore Trail is fairly well marked, this route is actually a combination of trails that will allow you to explore various sections of the park. To stay on the correct route, hikers should bring a GPS or trail map in order to stay on the correct path, or remember to turn left onto the Billy Miner Trail for the return journey down the hillside.
Setting out from the parking area, make your way uphill along Peterson Creek and under the overpass to continue along the trail. When you reach the junction, head right to follow the Tom Moore Trail as it crosses over the creek and wins through the park. Reaching the top of the trail, take some time to soak up the views before turning left onto the Billy Miner Trail. From here, you will work your way downhill to the View of Kamloops vantage point, where you can enjoy some spectacular views of the city and surrounding area. Continue downhill through the nature park until you meet up with the original trail that will lead you back to the parking area.
