    Route Description for Lindmark Trail

    Hiking along the Lindmark Trail is an awesome outdoor experience in Mount Revelstoke National Park that will take you on a long uphill climb through the beautiful forests of the area to reach the wooded shores of Balsam Lake. As this is a strenuous route, hikers should make sure to come prepared with proper hiking footwear and enough snacks and water to stay fueled along the trail. Additionally, dogs can use the lower portion of the Lindmark Trail up to the Columbia Viewpoint; however, frequent interactions with bears now restrict them from being able to access the area around the summit of Mount Revelstoke any backcountry areas.

    The trail sets out from the edge of the city and enters into the forest along the mountain's lower slopes. From here, the trail splits off from the Summit Trail on a path to the west that climbs steeply uphill. Hikers will be able to catch some awesome views of the valley and surrounding mountains from the Monashee and Eagle Pass viewpoints before continuing their climb through the dense tree cover. The route will pass through a series of switchbacks before arriving at the tranquil waters of Balsam Lake. From here, hikers can either opt to push on to the summit to explore the area or return along the same path back to the trailhead.
