The Spirit Trail is an unofficial trail that runs along the east side of Columbia lake from Fairmont Hot Springs to Canal Flats through the East Side Columbia Lake Wildlife Management Area. The trail is approximately 18km (11 miles) each direction. The terrain is mildly hilly making it an easy mountain bike or a leisurely long hike. There are several stream crossings which can be challenging to those on foot who prefer to stay dry. The trail offers forested area, open meadows, and both mountain and valley views.
