    Route Description for One Mile Lake Trail

    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. Make sure to bring bug spray and adequate clothing to protect yourself from bug bites when hiking along this route.

    Setting out from the trailhead next to the One Mile Lake Nature Centre, head south towards the lake and walk around its eastern shore. Reaching the junction at the end of the lake, go left to follow a path alongside the creek and another left at the next fork. Continue for a short distance and head left onto the Overhill Trail to follow a forested loop through the area. You’ll periodically have views overlooking the valley and nearby peaks along this stretch of the trail, including Mount Currie. After completing the loop, head back on the same path to return to One Mile Lake, where you can either spend the rest of the day by the water or head back to your vehicle.
