Overview

Mabel Lake Road is situated in the North Okanagan region of British Columbia, about an hour northeast of Vernon. Two fantastic campgrounds on this trail are right along the lake and have great beaches. Mabel Lake is 35 KM long and narrow; it's excellent for fishing, boating, swimming, paddle sports, or having a lovely day at the lake when the summer heat is too much!

The trail traverses mostly through Crown Land, with Wap Provincial Park on the north and Mabel Lake Provincial Park on the south. As you travel through the dense forest, the trees give way to incredible views of Mabel Lake and the Columbia Mountains.

This trail will take you down the east side of Mabel Lake, and if you want to do the whole Mabel Lake Loop, at the north trailhead is the Thee Valley Mabel Road Junction, which will travel down the west side of the lake and provides access to the lovely little community of Kingfisher.
