This ride follows the West side road along the shore line of Kinbasket Lake to the Saddle Lakes and beyond. These small lakes are known for active little rainbow trout. If fishing is not your intent, continue past the lakes as long as you desire and continue exploring.
For best access, travel 1km south of Valemount on Hwy5 and turn left at the first intersection where you will see signage for the Kinbasket lake. Remain on this road for 7.5km where you will reach the intersection of the East and West side roads. Turn right here and travel another 1km crossing the Canoe River and take your next right where you will find the staging area.
