A short walk around Heather Lake to gain views of the Columbia Valley. From here you can walk to the historic fire tower on the true summit of Mount Revelstoke or head back along the west shore of Heather Lake. Constant mountain views. Where else can you hike around the top of a mountain in your sandals? The trails are so well maintained you’ll have no fear of vicious undergrowth grabbing at your ankles. You will, however, be swarmed by horseflies and mosquitoes, so bring your bug spray and a swatter if you have one (or better yet, a complete bug suit).
