Route Description for Lake Enid

Hiking the Lake Enid trail is a perfect way to spend a few hours in the beautiful Invermere landscape while getting some light exercise at the same time. The trail is relatively flat and offers a relaxing hiking experience with some pretty views for the minimal effort required to complete this trail.

Follow the loop in either direction as you work your way around the calm waters of the lake. To the east, you will have some views that look out across the Columbia Valley, and to the west, you will have the rugged expanse of the Purcell Mountain Range. After taking in the natural beauty of the surrounding landscape, you can either head back to your vehicle for the return trip home or spend some extra time hanging out by the lake and exploring the trails branching off the main loop.
