The rural landscape is captivating, and the vegetation and wildlife are exquisite. With a map, the incredibly enchanting lake would be clearly marked out. Do drop by there because the mere sight of it is rejuvenating to the spirit and mind.Quick Tips: Do not go alone like I did because it can be dangerous.

More pictures of the Park, including the lake, views from lookouts, as well as some really weird path signs along the way! Be sure to bring along that camera, and lots of film/CF cards/batteries!

Hiking alone here can be more scary than rewarding. Be sure to find out first if there had been any bear sightings before taking the plunge. I would not recommend hiking during the snowy winter.

The Lake is about 1.5km from the entrance of the park, figure about 45 minutes for a leisurely hike. There are amply photo opportunities along the way, so bring along a camera tripod or grab a bunch of friends!

The route to the lake is truly dramatic. You first catch sight of it through the countless tall, thin tree trunks. No, maybe not. I think I remember first breathing in some really... REALLY... fresh and cool air, then realising that I was getting near to the lake!
