Map & Terrain:
Dewdrop is one of our oldest maps first
mapped in 1990 for the Asia Pacific Orienteering Festival. It
has been used many times but not since 2016. Updates to the
vegetation and trails are needed but the bones of the map ....
contours, cliffs, rocks .... are good. The area is mostly open
and great fun to walk and run on with spectacular views of the
Thompson valley and Kamloops Lake. The grasslands are in
excellent condition this year and there are many interesting
plants and birds to watch for. On our way to the map this spring
we saw half a dozen big horn rams and a group of mule deer just
off the road. The area is home to rattlesnakes and they could
be active in small numbers when the event takes place. They have
never posed a problem to runners in the past. If you are lucky
enough to see one or hear one, move along.
