Viewpoint, benches added to Dewdrop Trail
Kamloops Thompson Trails Alliance has just completed its first 2.3-kilometres of trail work.
Volunteers from the Kamloops Outdoor Club and the Kamloops Hiking Club worked on the lower part of the Dewdrop Trail and, just past the two-kilometre mark, a viewpoint is now cleared.
A new trail sign marks the trail junction.
Fallen trees have been cleared and a new bench sits on the bluff, with an open view of the Dewdrop Range below.
The parking area at the trailhead has also been cleaned of broken glass and nails.
The alliance has worked closely with BC Parks, which provided some core funding for tools.
The trail starts at a parking area on the north side of Frederick Road in the Dewdrop Range and climbs to the top of Red Plateau.
The trailwork completed this week covers the first part of the established trail.
The alliance plans to upgrade more trails in the future.
