Description

The Sherbrooke Lake Trailhead is at a small parking area next to a lodge on the TransCan (Hwy 1). It is easily accessible when going west on the TransCan and is marked with a small sign. When going east on the TransCan, make a U-turn at the lodge to go west on the TransCan to find the parking area and trailhead.

Sherbrooke Lake Trail begins by climbing through a fir forest for the first 0.8 miles. As the trail climbs, views of Cathedral Mountain to the south emerge through the trees. About 0.9 miles from the trailhead, a junction with Paget Lookout Trail is passed. Continue straight at this junction to follow Sherbrooke Lake Trail. This is well marked.

After passing the Paget Lookout Trail junction, Sherbrooke Lake Trail levels out and the trees thin. A few small meadows are passed, and one arrives at Sherbrooke Lake after running 1.9 miles from the trailhead. Sherbrooke Lake is a beautiful, turquoise mountain lake surrounded by peaks. Across the lake to the west is Mt. Ogden. Cathedral Mountain, across the hidden Kicking Horse River Valley, can be seen at the south end of the lake. North of the lake is Mt. Niles in the distance.

The Sherbrooke Lake Trail then continues by following the lakeshore for another 0.9 miles. The trail then reaches the lake's input streams and ends.
