Copper Mine Trail
Follow the beautiful North Thompson River to Little Fort from Kamloops. Hop onto Highway 24 for a twisty ride to 100 Mile House - a great lunch stop, passing multiple lakes along the way. After lunch head South on Highway 97 to Cache Creek, passing the painted hills. Continue on Highway 1 to Ashcroft then south on Highway 97 to get to Logan Lake. Check out Highland Valley Copper Mine. The Logan Lake Visitor Info Centre is located inside a huge mining shovel that sits next to a 235-ton ore truck. From Logan Lake head Northwest where you can stop at Lac Le Jeune for a picnic then carry on back to Kamloops.
