After circling the east side of Kaslo Lake, one passes the large Kokanee Glacier Hut where a sign points to the trail that accesses Sapphire Lakes. The trail climbs moderately to a Enterprise pass and another fork to Tanal Lake and the Enterprise Creek watershed. Good views towards Kaslo Lake reward the runner but are soon lost as one presses higher toward Saphire Lakes.
Once out of treeline, several minor lakes appear on the right (north) of the trail which passes through giant alpine meadows before reaching the first of the Sapphire Lakes. There is an outhouse at the lower Sapphire Lake but no camping is permitted. Following the trail onward from the first lake, one will reach the second, higher, lake in a matter of minutes.
