Lockhart Creek

Lockhart Creek Provincial Park and adjacent Lockhart Beach Provincial Park extend from the sunny shores of Kootenay Lake to the headwaters of Lockhart Creek.

Lockhart Creek Provincial Park, encompasses one of the few unroaded valleys in the region and protects a diverse old growth forest. A pioneer trail along Lockhart Creek leads to grand vistas of Kootenay Lake and meanders through the habitat of many species of plants and animals unique to temperate interior cedar hemlock forests. Birdwatchers and wildflower and plant identification enthusiasts will be rewarded by a visit to this area.


The park has a hiking trail that follows the north side of Lockhart Creek gaining about 800 metres of elevation over a three hour hike.  An old cabin site about two hours up is a favourite destination. Though open to wilderness recreation, the park has no facilities or marked trails and is not regularly serviced.

Visitors should be self-sufficient and proficient in back country travel practices.
