Tourism Kamloops Releases First Multi-Use Trail Guide
Tourism Kamloops, in collaboration with the community, releases the highly anticipated 2017 Trail Guide
March 4, 2017 - Tourism Kamloops is pleased to announce the release of the Kamloops 2017 Trail Guide. A result of extensive community collaboration and strong partnerships with passionate, local trail enthusiasts, Tourism Kamloops’ Trail Guide presents over 200km of trails that visitors can explore and enjoy 12-months of the year.
"Whether you are planning a relaxing family getaway or an adrenaline-packed weekend, Kamloops and our landscapes offer a multitude of trail experiences," says Lisa Strachan, Tourism Kamloops Director of Destination Development & Trade Relations. "When you look through the 2017 Trail Guide, it becomes easy to understand why Kamloops is renowned for its world class trail network."
"Due to the hard work of many volunteers, Kamloops has seen a huge increase in the amount of new and sanctioned trails in the last few years. Having a single guide to tie it all together puts this accomplishment into perspective. The 2017 Trail Guide is a great resource for locals and visitors alike," explains Catharine Pendrel, President of the Kamloops Bike Riders Association.
Bike enthusiasts are encouraged to use the guide to plan their next ride, and visitors who prefer to explore on foot can use the guide to enjoy signature Kamloops trails that will challenge them or simply provide activity levels for the entire family.
“We are so fortunate to have great partners who share our vision in showcasing Kamloops as accessible outdoor playground," boasts Strachan. "Incredible partnerships with the City of Kamloops, Kamloops Performance Cycling Centre, Kamloops Bike Riders Association, Pinkbike.com and Trailforks.com and many other local partners helped make the Kamloops 2017 Trail Guide possible."
The Kamloops 2017 Trail Guide is available at the Kamloops Visitor Centre or online at tourismkamloops.com.
