Hike around McConnell Lake, B.C.

Rate this Adventure Canada McConnell Lake

Added by Katrina Schellenberg

A beautiful location for kayaking, fishing, canoeing, or for a nice trail walk around the lake.

McConnell Lake provides amazing, quiet waters for kayaking, paddle boarding and maybe even swimming in the summer! The area even offers 45km of trail, including a primitive trail around the lake (3.5km).

Known for its clear water, McConnell is also a good place for fishing large rainbow trout, and ice-fishing in the winter.

Crescent beach is a great place to end your day, by taking some sunset pictures. It often lights up the sky and really pops with colour.

Hike the Butze Rapids Loop Trail

The parking lot for the trail is just outside of Prince Rupert and right off of Highway 16W. This hike is an easy hike, with some hills, through a beautiful coastal rainforest.
