Just off the highway at the edge of town an easy trial goes around the lake. Apart from geese, ducks and herons, I have also seen Moose here. Can take anywhere from 15 minutes to a couple of hours,, always something to see.

I would not recommend swimming in this lake it is dirty and the seaweed almost reaches the dock. The dock is tilted

Beautiful lake in fernie full of little fish and a decent sandy-ish beach area . We stayed over an hour cooling off in the water and playing in the sand and rocks . Scenery is majestic. Walking trail there too.

A great little spot to have a picnic at, dip your toes in, walk all the way around it, throw rocks into, or teach your kid how to skip stones into.
