The hike around One Mile Lake is a scenic route through the woodlands south of Pemberton that provides nice views of the surrounding valley and nearby mountains. The trail comprises fairly easy terrain, making it a nice trek for hikers of all skill levels; however, due to proximity to the water, there are many mosquitos along the trail.

Setting out from the trailhead next to the One Mile Lake Nature Centre, head south towards the lake and walk around its eastern shore.
