Premier Lake Provincial Park

About an hour drive from Cranbrook is the scenic Premier Lake Provincial Park. The hiking trail to Yankee, Canuck and Turtle Lake is an easy/moderate, low-elevation forested trail around a 6.8 km loop.

The elevation gain is 150 m (500 ft.) with the highest point along the path between Turtle and Canuck Lakes at 990 m (3,249 ft.). These deep and clear lakes are close together, and they sparkle with the reflections of the adjacent Rocky Mountains. Premier Lake Provincial Park features an RV campground, and the deep, clear and cool lake is suitable for swimming, fishing and boating.
