The Pineview Trail system offers a variety of distances to run.  Connector trails are constantly being added, so it’s easy to find the terrain, elevation gain, and distance for any trail runner. The east side is open year-round while the west side has a seasonal cattle grazing closure until July 1 each year.

 

The view of Kamloops from the start of Beer Run

A 29km loop featuring some of Pineview’s best trails like Marshmallow, Low Iron, Dragonfly, Wally World, and Miner 29er can be done from the North or East trailhead.  The route offers all that the park has, including a dry desert area on the Westside, pine trees abound on the North end and grassy fields in the Southern area.  The start of Beer Run Trail has a great view of the Kamloops area.  It’s best to get the GPX file from the CalTopo map and download it to a watch, as it’s easy to get confused in this trail system with so many connector trails.
