Distance 4.1 km return, height gain 125 m, easy
Warspite Lake, in a cirque below Mount Black Prince, is a great short snowshoe trip in warm spring conditions or for a quick in and out trip on a short, cold day in December or January. There is no avalanche danger if you donâ€™t venture too far beyond the lake. See blog
Start: Hwy. 742 (Smith-Dorrien/Spray Trail) at Black Prince day-use area.
Difficulty: A steady climb up an old logging road. After about a kilometre, the trail heads down right through trees toward the lake.
Note: You can snowshoe diagonally across the lake, through some trees to the large open meadow beyond and head up sunny slopes to the right, keeping near the edge of the trees.
Please refer to the trail description in the guidebook, especially for unofficial, off-trail hikes.
