Excellent 7.5km trail along Slocan Lake, beautiful views and a multitude of swimming spots. It will take you about 2.5 hours. Please respect Private Property at Pebble Beach. Many people shorten the hike to Beatrice Lake by boating across Slocan Lake to the small cove south of Evans Creek.

Several peaks and traverse routes can be accessed from points along this trail. They require route finding, mountaineering skills and climbing equipment. There are few facilities so hike and camp in a manner which minimizes the impact on the vegetation and wildlife. The terrain is often dangerous, and many areas are prime grizzly bear habitat. Fires are only permitted in designated areas. Dogs are only allowed on the Slocan City to Evans Creek section of the trail.
