RUMMEL LAKE SNOWSHOE
Distance 10.9 km return, height gain 396 m, moderate
Less steep than the Chester Lake trail, it is a popular winter trip for both skiers and snowshoers. This little lake, named after Baroness Elizabeth “Lizzie” Rummel is set between the impressive cliffs of The Tower and Mount Galatea and below a spectacular upper valley.
Start: Hwy. 742 (Smith-Dorrien/Spray Trail). Park beside the highway opposite the Mt. Shark Road.
Difficulty: Easy snowshoeing on a good trail that was improved for snowshoeing (but not skiing) during construction of the High Rockies Trail.
Note: You can extend your trip into the upper valley by heading a short distance along the left side of the lake, then following a trail that climbs to treeline giving access to the valley. See map
