Hiking through northern alpine meadows to a glacier blue lake tucked away in the mountains

Along the Alaska Highway approximately 140 kilometers North West of Fort Nelson, BC lies Summit Lake Campground within the Stone Mountain Provincial Park. You can begin this secluded hike right from your camp site along the alpine lake at the camp ground. There are two routes for this hike. One begins along Summit Lake adding an extra 3 kilometers to the hike. We chose to take the gravel radio tower road up to the meadow where the road meets the trail head. The radio tower road is on the left of the highway just before the camp ground. You have the option to drive up the tower road to meet the beginning of the meadow trail, making this hike easy with little elevation gain. Along the side of the tower road the trail begins with signage and a picnic table. The beginning of this trail is very damp walking through some bog and shrubs. As you get further into the trail you gain a little bit of elevation and the ground dries out. After about 3 kilometers of hiking along the brush you will see Flower Spring Lake. The distance from the camp ground to the lake and back is approximately 11 kilometers. The most elevation you gain is up the radio tower road. For more advanced hiking you can continue to the upper lakes beyond Flower Springs Lake.
