  • Site Description: Diana Recreation Site is approx. midway of Diana Lake Trail. The trail distance is 6kms ( one way). Elevation gain 600 metres. CAUTION - SEVERAL DOWNED TREES SLOW TRAIL TRAVEL . TRAIL CLEARING PLANNED BUT NOT COMPLETED TO DATE. Hiking time - 2.5 to 3 hours one way. A moderately easy hike suited for day trips and family hiking. The Diana Lake trail has a steady but gradual elevation gain as it travels through open larch meadows towards the scenic lake. From the parking area the trail follows the old roadway. Soon after the aluminum footbridge, take the trail to the right. Towards the final approach to the lake grades become gentler and two creeks are crossed. The trail end destination features the shaded cool waters of Diana Lake framed by peaks of the Brisco Range. Further excursions are possible to the alpine ridges for views of Mt. Assiniboine, the Goodsirs, and the Bugaboos, to Boyce Pass and the Kootenay River valley or Kootenay National Park. A camping spot is available at the south end of the lake. Enroute to the upper meadows the trail passes a private cabin, which is not available for public use. Horse impacts are increasing at the lake and meadows; please graze horses at least 75 metres from the lakeshore. Catch and release angling at Diana Lake is suggested. The lake elevation is approx. +/-2143m.
