Four Lake Trail

Hiking the Four Lakes Trail at Alice Lake Provincial Park
The Four Lakes Trail is 6 km in length and takes a circuitous route past all four lakes. The trail takes you through Douglas fir, Western Red Cedar and other coniferous and deciduous trees. Some of the birds that can be seen are warblers, Steller Jays, Chickadees and Robins. Small animals such as raccoons, squirrels and chipmunks inhabit the forest and are more apt to be seen by visitors. A few box turtles have been spotted sunning themselves on logs at Alice Lake and Stump Lake. It is best to park your car in the far end of Alice Lake parking lot and walk back along the road to the yellow gate where camping begins. The reason being - the trail is easier to travel, increasing at a gradual elevation instead of a steep climb if you should start the trail at the south parking lot.
