I don't reccomend this hike due to mosquitos, and it was easy to miss the lake and hike in even heavier mosquitos. Hiked this from the campground, by the theater. 2 suspension bridges have pretty view of river. Sign after bridge was helpful. A few flowers were pretty in the woods. Take an unmarked but dirt, well trodden trail to right to reach lake. if you get to the next, confusing trail sign (by the warped railroad style wooden bridge), turn around, you passed it. The trail also thins, and there's thicker plant life and mosquitos after that. Also bear activity in area.

Nice, easy trail with pretty scenery. A good low-elevation option for when the weather is questionable as it was the day we went. I imagine this trail would get quite busy on nice days, so I recommend going on a rainy day and/or in shoulder season like we did. It was still fairly busy, but not too bad since it was late September and it was intermittently rainy.

Deep into the woods and a decent incline but beautiful views of the forest. Quiet. 6 km and worth it

Interesting hike with good flowers. The bridges early on were a highlight, but then no views until you reach the pretty lake. Lots of mosquitos.

Pros:
Good for all skill levels
Different hiking options on the trail (It is 2.7 km one way and we took the loop to East Kootenay Trail, so totaled about 7 km instead of 6)
Lots of wildflowers and great lookout points

Cons:
It was cloudy so I didn't get great mountain views - still worth it!

Was a quiet morning hike though the bush with lots of Fall colors to enjoy. easy trail with a nice reward of snow capped mountains reflecting in the lake
