 Overview
 Description
at least 6 underground caves, possibly more of them.
Want to go explore the caves ?

The caves are called: the Bearcat caves. They are located a short drive east of kamloops near the town of Monte Lake. Once there you will turn on Mill Road. Follow this road for a while, this will become Monte Creek FSR. you will come to two forks along the way. keep left at both fork. soon after the second fork there's a little logging road going down hill on the left side. follow it until you get to the clearing. Again, go left. a ways up you'll come up to wood 200 road. fellow it till you see the log on the right side that reads Bearcat / clowns. this is where you park your vehicle. (gps; N50 23.387 - W119 51.22) if you miss it, the road end soon after so you wont be able to drive too far past it.

I didn't need a high clearance 4x4 to get there, but if trees have fallen or its been raining... i could see some fallen trees, deep muddy holes... requiring a truck to get there.


Now, Walk across the clearing on the left side of the road. There is no real trail, just bushwhack your way thru it. the first 2-3 caves are not so hard to find, for the others tho. For sure you will need a GPS.

here is some cave coordinates :
N50 23.584 W119 51.006
N50 23.463 W119 51.22
N50 23.463 W119 51.221

N50 23.448 W119 51.088
N50 23.390 W119 51.129
