Kamloops Riding Area Map

Postby Hooligan » Sat Jul 16, 2016 11:27 am

Anyone contemplating doing some riding in Kamloops may find this map useful. It is the official government map & brochure for the Duffy - Greenstone OHV area.

The way BC marks and provides official numbers, names, ratings for the designated trails, is so much more usefull and easier to follow than Alberta. Thanks for Posting :thumbsup:

Yup, the trail ratings are great. It's also being engraved into riders to NOT attempt trails beyond their ability due to the additional damage it causes.

Revy is the same way.

I was looking at some vids of trails around Duffy Lake and they all seem quite easy, nothing challenging. With all the riding we do on difficult, challenging terrain of S Alberta, everything else seems ..... too easy. :crazy:

Unless you've got world class skills, you can find challenging and fun trails in the Duffy Greenstone area.

Duffy/Greenstone has tons of challenging trails. Most people that ride the area stick to the National Trail/Duffy Loop/Two Day trails that are quite fast and easy. If you want challenge, I can assure you that the likes of Kawi Trail/Powerline Hill/Three Worlds/Trials/Rock Garden have plenty to offer.

If you want to truly punish yourself, Chuhwells has trails that will smash bikes as well as spirit. I still have an old GKMA trail map of the area kicking around somewhere. If I find it I will scan it and post it up.

If anyone is heading out to the Kamloops area in the next couple of weeks, I'll be here until the 8th of August minus the CXCC weekend in Crowsnest next weekend.

Heading to Kamloops mid september to ride, can anyone recommend best locations to tent camp and maybe some cheap hotels? If you have some GSP data would also be much appreciated.

I stayed in a tent at the Duffy lake campground a few weeks ago, was a great facility with lots of nice sites, an abundance of clean outhouses, and cheap too ($12/night). Granted it's the only campground I've stayed at in the area, but I'd have no hesitation in going there again, in fact I'll most likely do so next year.

We did a half day in Inks Lake and it was OK. Most of the trails are very easy and we had to really hunt to find anything challenging. A GPS is highly recommended as there are trails everywhere and it would be very easy to get turned around and have difficulty finding your way back.

if you buy a membership in the BCORMA you used to get access to some skookum maps. I love riding in that area of BC.
