    Route Description for Slocan-Evans Trail

    Hiking the Slocan-Evans Trail is a fun day outdoors that will provide you with some truly beautiful views overlooking Slocan Lake and the scenic forests that can be found within Valhalla Provincial Park. The trail sets out from the town of Slocan and crosses over the Slocan River before following the road north for 400 m. Here, the actual hiking trail will begin, as you leave the residential houses of the town behind and head into the beautiful lakeside forest.

    When you enter the park and make your way down the trail, you will have access to a number of vantage points overlooking the lake that range from rocky outcrops to partially forested views. Across the water, you will be able to spot several mountains that frame the rugged landscape and tower over the blue water below. After working your way along the forested edge of the lake, you will eventually reach the end of this particular trail. Those looking to extend their hike can continue north to eventually arrive at a beach and the Evans Creek Campground.
