Trail Name: The Pimple
Distance: 1 km
Time: Under an hour
Cell Service: Unknown
Trail: Flat packed gravel followed by very steep loose gravel to the top.
Highlight: Spectacular views of Kamloops and Kamloops Lake
To get there: The Pimple is only about a 30 minute drive from Downtown Kamloops. To get there, head out past the Kamloops Airport along Tranquille road. Continue about 1.5kms past the turnoff for Battle Bluff. Get directions directly to the parking lot here.
From the parking lot, follow the trail to the base of the hill. From there it’s a steep, slippery climb to the top. It may look daunting but I assure you it is doable. Take your time.
I do not advise bringing children on this trail as it is fairly difficult. Dogs are acceptable but beware of cactus at the top. Enjoy the views of Kamloops Lake!
