Biking the Lazy Lizard Trail at Island Lake Lodge
We know you’re itching to get out! The trails at Island Lake Lodge are now open for use and everyone is encouraged to get out and enjoy nature safely while practicing social distancing. Island Lake Lodge needs your help to limit or refrain from doing bike shuttles by vehicle up the road to the lodge for the Lazy Lizard trail. The trail was built as an “up and down” trail and the Lodge asks that you use it as such. You can park at the trailhead for Lazy Lizard by the Island Lake Lodge gate. Your help is appreciated - enjoy the trails!
