KAMLOOPS - Nestled in the grasslands surrounding Kamloops is an area designated for off-road vehicles complete with hills and trails ideal for dirt bikers and ATV riders, and apparently big trucks with crazy drivers.

Off-road vehicles can often be seen tearing up the hills, including one called the ‘Widowmaker’, but in these videos the driver of a GMC Sierra takes on the steep hill, much to the amusement of on-lookers.

“Yeah, he’s nuts,” can be heard as the driver takes a running start at the hill.

Comments about the steepness as he tries to keep control while slowly descending can be heard throughout the second video.

While the Lac Du Bois Grasslands are a protected area, a section of the park close to east end of the grasslands is designated for ATV use. This is where the Widowmaker Hill can be found.
