Edith Hill

Take exit #368 off the Trans Canada Hwy 1 (freeway) in Kamloops, onto Hwy 5A to Merritt. Start your odometer at the first traffic light and then proceed South. At 4.5 km (2.6 miles) turn right at an “O” sign on to Long Lake road, and then at 1.5 km up this road, keep left at the second “O” sign and 2.0 km further, turn right at the third “O” sign. You now proceed up this gravel road (may be dusty, so keep your distance and watch for oncoming traffic) for 5.4 km (past Edith Lake on the left) to the final right turn at the last “O” sign. You must now pass through a large steel gate. If there is no attendant there when you arrive, you may manually pull the gate bar open wide to allow you to pass through, but PLEASE ENSURE THAT YOU SWING THE GATE BACK CLOSED AGAIN AFTER YOU HAVE PASSED THROUGH. From this point on you will find yourself on a small, slow farm road which passes through two OPEN barbed wire fences during the final 0.5 km to the parking area adjacent to the obvious toilets on the right. Please park on the left (south) side of the road, right angles to the road. It takes about 30 minutes to reach this point from Kamloops.

Competitor Notes

The map is elderly just like your course planner and controllers. Edith Hill is a complex map and met the standards for 1990 but there are a few things that you should be aware of:

  • Some unmarked selective logging
  • Lots of unmarked rock features and cliffs
  • The vegetation edges are not so clear as they once were because of vegetation growth


0 k ….. after leaving Highway 5 at the 5A intersection … Rogers Way

4.1 k ….. turn right at Knutsford on to Long Lake Road

5.7 k . …. stay left on Long Lake Road

7.7 k ….. turn right on Edith Lake Road

13.1 k ….. turn right up small hill to big steel gate (see detailed gate instructions)

Gate instructions
