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 â€œLizzieâ€ 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.
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
Please refer to the trail description in the guidebook, especially for unofficial, off-trail hikes.
