The trail to Rummel Lake is pleasant walk mostly through the forest to a small lake at the end.

There is only one view point at 1.6 from the start where you can see Spray lakes reservoir to the west, other that it's a walk in the forest until you arrive at the lake.

The trail is a bit "rooty" you have to watch your step continually.

There are fish in the lake so you can take your fishing gear along and spend a pleasant day at the lake.

You can walk all the way around the lake.

It's also possible to continue over the pass to Galatea Lakes

Directions:

As per Rummel Lake winter. Opposite the Mt Shark road, trail begins on the east side of Smith Dorien. There is a pull out right at the start of the Mt Shark road where you can park.

One difference from the winter trail, ignore the bridge on the left when you arrive at it about 1km before the lake. The trail continues and for a short time deteriorates along the edge of the creek. The good trail continues about 30 meters further on.

Much to see. Downside Fishing was rather poor when we went. Comment Check a vantage point to the East of the lake above the falls for an inuk-shuk. We built as we do at every alpine lake we visit. It is our way of looking over the lake while we are not there to do so. Please do not disturb it.
