Distance: 5.6 km return to lakes.
Description: A great day outing. Recent work done to the trailhead access makes it an easy approach. That being said… a recent avalanche on the south side of the pass has taken out the trail in a few spots making the trail hard to see in places. With good routefinding skills, staying on the trail is not a problem. There are also numerous rock cairns and flagging tape along the way where the trail gets a little faint to help you stay on the trail. This trail is in need of some work. Still, worth the effort. Equally, if not more beautiful than any trail in Mount Revelstoke National Park, and you are almost guaranteed to have it to yourself. Trail starts at 5000 ft, ascends to an alpine pass, then drops back down into the upper lake where you will find a fantastic camp spot. Alternatively you can stay on the main trail at the fork and head to the summit of Eagle Pass Mountain.
Directions: Follow Hwy 1 west of Revelstoke to the Crazy Creek FSR. Drive for 8.5 km on the Crazy Creek FSR until you reach a Y. The Y is well signed for Twin Lakes and Eagle Pass Mountain. Take the left. Follow this road for another 5 km climbing to the trailhead. Eagle Pass Mountain and Twin Lakes Trails share the same trailhead.
