This trail is an easy stroll that reaches a viewpoint which features a set of interpretive panels. Leaving the shoreline, it passes through lichen-rich stands of pine, spruce and fragrant subalpine fir as it loops back to the parking lot.

All domestic animals must be kept under physical control (i.e. on a leash or in suitable confinement) and not become a nuisance at all times. Pets are not to be left unattended on campsites or in vehicles. It is illegal and extremely dangerous to leave your pet unattended in your car during warm weather. If left unattended, the animal may be impounded. Allowing your pet to chase any wild animal in the Park is an offence. Pets are not allowed in some areas. Look for notices at trailheads and info centres to find out where these restrictions are. Remember to clean up after your pet.
