KAMLOOPS FALL HIKING TRAILS
McConnell Lake is especially gorgeous in the fall! This loop should definitely be on your list of fall hikes!
While this trail is less of a hike and more of a stroll, it is still STUNNING in the fall! If you’re looking for something super easy and in town, this is the one for you!
Seriously gorgeous this time of year! Lots of photographers use this area for their fall photoshoots because it is perfect. And the hike itself isn’t too difficult.
While a little farther out of town, this lake loop would be stunning in the fall! The best part is that the leaves probably change a little sooner up there!
Gorgeous deciduous trees line this trail. And it’s an off-leash dog park!
Also known as the Tranquille viewpoint, this short, steep climb offers spectacular views of the golden belt that is the Tranquille Creek trail below.
A lovely hike in the Shuswap with a stunning view of the Adams River gorge.
The trail out to the salmon spawning viewing platform at Tsutswecw Provincial Park. This trail is entirely accessible and stunning in fall.
Also in Tsutswecw Provincial Park, this super unique trail gives users the opportunity to hear local Indigenous youth share their language and knowledge of the native plants, wildlife, and landscape features of the park.
Absolutely stunning in the fall, Moul Falls is a must visit. The whole trail into the falls is gorgeous in shades of yellow and orange.
Everything in Wells Gray Provincial Park is beautiful in the fall, but especially Silvertip Falls! In the fall, the water is low enough that you can get right up close to the falls and the mosquitos aren’t nearly as bad!
An easy hike in and incredible to see, Dawson falls does not disappoint.
Another super easy stroll, but offers some of the best fall colours in town! Walk along the river and enjoy the views!
In the fall, bright red pickleweed sprouts around ponds in the Lac Du Bois area.
A gorgeous network of trails on the way up to Sun Peaks, these trails would be beautiful in the fall! Not to mention the view from the summit would be spectacular with the autumn colours below in the valley!
While we’ve never done this one in the fall (we’ve done it mid-summer and it was brutal!) we’d definitely recommend doing it now! With the cooler temperature, the hike up will warm you up! If you’re looking for a long, hard fall hike, this is it!!
We’ve done this one in the fall and it is definitely worth doing it then! It’s quite a climb, so in the cool, crisp fall air – it’s perfect! On top of that, you get to see all the fall colours in the valley from way up in the caves!
