My wife does not like to ride the hills...so I figured we wouldn't do much riding in Kamloops, so I was pleasantly surprised to find the trail. Flat, reasonably well marked and wife approved. We rode a 30 km circuit through MacArthur Park, Riverside Park (during ribfest, I might add) and Pioneer Park. Kamloops has done a nice job of... More

Flat scenic trail right by the river. Gotta do it. People being their dogs to fetch balls in the river. Great easy walk and also very accessible for any type of handicaps.

I use the Rivers Trail 3 times a week as I am an avid runner. It is great that Kamloops has this wonderful trail system that is safe for walkers, runners and bikers. I appreciate the kilometer markers that are along the trail to keep track of how far I have gone!!

The Rivers Trail allows you to walk along the banks of the Thompson River. The trail is 85% paved (15% dirt) with wide paths and when I walked it it was very clean with no dog poo in sight. Benches allow a rest with a great view of the river. Informational signs/boards give a history of the area. A relaxing... More

The scenery along the Thompson River is ever-changing, but the pathway itself is reliably smooth for Senior walkers, who may dread a stumble and a fracture....and also for any four-wheeled stroller or chair. From its start at the west end of Riverside Park to the Red Bridge and back is perfect for an easy stroll.

Beautiful place to walk. Lots of nice views of the river. Fairly clean and easy to walk on. There was some traffic but not a lot. Lots of friendly people on the walk. It felt like a safe place to walk.

A extensive, easy biking trail going through the heart of Kamloops. One of the most enjoyable free and scenic activities available. Good family fun that follows the rivers edge.

Great hikes no matter when you go. Small brooks and the only thing that is missing are salmon runs. You get all the salmon runs in North Vancouver or more towards the Okanagan water / Fraser river.
