Lockhart Creek Trail

The Lockhart Creek Provincial Park Trail follows the north side of Lockhart Creek gaining about 800 metres of elevation over a three-hour hike. An old cabin site about two hours up is a favourite destination.

The trail leads to grand vistas of Kootenay Lake and features many species of plants and animals unique to temperate interior cedar hemlock forests. Birdwatchers as well as wildflower and plant identification enthusiasts will be rewarded by a visit to this area.

From the eastern boundary of the Lockhart Creek trail and park, more experienced hikers prepared to camp overnight may also wish to continue on another 7 kilometers along the trail to Baker Lake Rec Site.
