Marvel Lake Trail
The Marvel Lake Trail is a scenic adventure that will take you between two camping sites within Mount Assiniboine Provincial Park. While out on the trail, you will hike past several charming lakes and traverse the rugged terrain of Wonder Pass, enjoying the beautiful views of the park as you cross over the British Columbia-Alberta border. This is a point-to-point trail, so make sure you plan on staying overnight at the Marvel Lake Campground or else you will be in for a very long 30.0 km day on the trails!

Route Description for Marvel Lake Trail
The Marvel Lake Trail is a fantastic point-to-point trail that is popular with backpackers making their way between the Lake Magog and Marvel Lake Campgrounds, as well as day hikers looking to explore the stunning views of Wonder Pass. The trail sets out from the scenic shores of Lake Magog and heads to the southeast, climbing uphill through the mountainous terrain of Wonder Pass between Wonder Peak and The Towers to cross the British Columbia-Alberta border. From here, you will descend the mountainside and hike along Marvel Lake until you arrive at the end point of the hike at the campground.
Getting to the Marvel Lake Trail Trailhead
Mt. Assiniboine Provincial Park is (thankfully) a fairly inaccessible place, which helps to preserve the landscape but also makes it difficult to visit. Those looking to explore the park can either backpack in via the Mount Shark and Sunshine Village trailheads, or take a scenic helicopter ride to avoid the extra leg work.
