Dorothy and Christine Lake Trail Description

From the trail sign at the Dorothy and Christine Lakes parking lot, hike along the dirt road to an embankment. Cross the railroad tracks here by following the hiker sign to the trail on the other side. 984ft from the trailhead, the trail crosses the Miette River on a footbridge.

The trail climbs steadily on a gradual grade until coming to a junction at 2.7mi. A 1640ft, the side trail on the right leads to the beautiful Virl Lake if you choose to take this. Continue on the main trail for 984ft before meeting Dorothy Lake. Christine Lake is another 984ft from here. Take your time at each of the lakes and return the way you came.
