    Upper part of Eva Lake Trail Mount Revelstoke National Park British Columbia Canada

    The Eva Lake Trail is a 15.0 km out-and-back hiking route in Mount Revelstoke National Park that sets out from the summit and travels into the backcountry to first visit Miller Lake before continuing on to Eva Lake. Along the trail, you will experience scenic views of the mountain peaks that blanket the landscape and take in the natural beauty of the two picturesque mountain-top lakes. Hikers can also camp overnight at the Eva Lake Campsite if they would like to complete the trail as a multi-day hike.

    Route Description for Eva Lake Trail

    Hiking through Mount Revelstoke National Park along the Eva Trail is a pretty straightforward affair due to the relatively easy terrain and moderate 493 m of elevation gain. Still, hikers should come prepared with proper hiking footwear and any additional gear, such as hiking poles or microspikes, that they might need for the 15.0 km journey. As grizzly bears are fairly active in the region, you should make sure to travel in groups and carry bear spray to avoid any potentially dangerous encounters.

    You will hike through a nice mix of terrain that includes dense stretches of forest, beautiful alpine meadows, and some rocky paths along the trail. After a short detour from the main trail to visit the charming waters of Miller Lake, the hike continues north to arrive at the picturesque area around Eva Lake eventually. From here, hikers will have some breathtaking views that stretch across the small body of water and look out into the vast expanse of the park. After you’ve taken in the scenery, head back down the same route to return to the parking lot at Balsam Lake or set up your camp for an adventurous overnight stay in the mountains.

    Getting to the Eva Lake Trail Trailhead

    To reach the parking lot for the Eva Lake Trail from the BC-1 Highway in Revelstoke, take the Mt. Revelstoke National Park exit and drive along the Meadows in the Sky Parkway for 24.6 km to get to the parking lot beside Balsam Lake.
