During our recent camping trip to Alice Lake, we did the Four Lakes Trail to conclude our trip. Currently it’s supposed to be a one-way trail going clockwise, but there was no signage when we started at Alice Lake so when we found out about it, we were already committed to going counter clockwise.

The trail around Alice Lake is almost completely flat except for one small section with some incline, so the Alice Lake Loop could be done with a sturdy stroller.

Lake 1: Alice Lake

As we turned off Alice Lake towards Edith Lake, we climbed a 800m section which was the steepest of the whole trail, accounting for almost all of the elevation gains. This means the rest of the trail was either flat or downhill.

Lake 2: Edith Lake

The hiking trails were mixed with mountain biking trails, and we did meet a few friendly mountain bikers on the way.

The trails were well maintained, with minimal roots and rocks.

Lake 3: Fawn Lake.

By the time we reached the fourth and final lake, the kids finally woke up and rejoined the hike. We had some snack and played next to Stump Lake a little.

Besides Alice Lake, our favorite would be Stump Lake. It provides more shading and view points, and little areas at the lake shore to take breaks. It’s also only less than 1km from Alice Lake, so it’s a worthy detour next time you visit Alice Lake Park to get away from the crowd a little.
