Hike to Miller and Eva Lakes in Mount Revelstoke NP
Rate this Adventure Canada › Eva Lake Trail, Revelstoke
Added by Joe Whitson
Experience a mountain summit without having to hike up and see unbelievable mountain wildflowers. This hike allows you to visit multiple lakes within a short distance.
Mount Revelstoke, located in the Columbian Range on the border of Alberta and British Columbia, is the only summit in the Canadian Rockies you can reach by car. The windy road from the Trans-Canadian highway rises about 4000 ft. offering increasingly expansive views of the valley below. The park is known for its fields of wildflowers, so try to visit during their incredibly short growing season - usually about three weeks in August.
While the peak area is great to explore with some shorter trails and panoramic views, to really experience the park, you have to get away from the crowds. At about nine miles round trip, the hikes to Miller and Eva lakes provide a great sample of what the park offers. The trailhead is on the far side of the main peak area across from the parking lot and should be easy to locate. Follow the path through alpine meadows keeping an eye out for marmots, pikas, mountain goats, and black bears on the way. About three and a half miles in, you'll hit the short spur trail to Miller Lake. A long peninsula allows you to trek almost to the center of lake for a 360º view of the area. Head back and follow the trail to Eva Lake, a glacial lake perched on the edge of a cliff with a skyline of mountains rising behind it. Check out of the old park warden cabin and take the short trail that circumnavigates the lake. This is a great place for lunch before heading back to the main area.
The Canadian Parks page offers additional information about the hike as well as lengthening your route to include Jade Lakes: Canadian Parks.
