This loop takes you from North Shore Kamloops out and up through the Lac de Bois grasslands and further up to Isobel Lake and back. It's a 2 hour jaunt until the climb up to Isobel. The climb is not difficult for an intermediate rider. And the trip home is a reward, as it is mostly downhill. It's about 4h 15 mins for me and I am not at all fast.
