If ever a walk revealed the folly of using distance alone as a guide, it is this one on a B.C. Forest Service trail. The apparent discrepancy between distance and time soon disappears, however, as you rise and descend, rollercoaster fashion, the thrill increased on the east side of the lake by the steep drop to the water below. The usual start for the walk is from the parking lot on the west side of Highway 99 (Sea to Sky Highway), about 4.5 km (2.8 mi) north of the Alice Lake junction. From this spot you may ease into the walk by going south on a gentle trail paralleling the highway, crossing the bridge over the reedy narrows and turning north again at the fork where Bridge Trail (Walk 98) goes left. Now you begin your upsy-downsy way along the lake, passing en route a second trail into the interpretive forest before arriving at a junction with the Thompson Trail, which leads down to the Tenderfoot Fish Hatchery.
