FATMAP difficulty grade
This popular trail system encircles the White Clouds Golf Course near Sun Valley Lodge.
It’s close to town and not very hard, making a great introduction to the area or a convenient workout at the beginning or end of the day.
On this loop you’ll run a combination of natural-surface trail and the paved Trail Creek Path, weaving through hillside prairie and among scattered trees, sometimes in view of the golf course but mostly overlooking the town and more of the valley.
Trail surface is for the most part smooth and firm, with just a few looser or rockier sections, and some steeper pitches.
Low elevation and sunny slopes mean these trails dry out faster than most, making them good in the early season when other trails might not be. Source: https://summertrailink.bcrd.org/whitecloudsloop.php
