This hike to Klapatche Park is all uphill and a strenuous but worthwhile climb. The tranquil waters of Aurora Lake and the beautiful subalpine meadows of Klapatche Park are popular destinations for park visitors. The trail takes you up the Westside Road and through old-growth forest with fascinating rock formations, colonade, formed from cooled lava of past eruptions. You’ll also feast on the majestic deep-blue waters of St. Andrews Lake and the scenic meadows of St. Andrews Park.
