Bike Vermilion Lakes Road

From dawn to dusk, the gentle ups and downs of the Vermilion Lakes Road are a two-wheeler’s paradise. Each of the three lakes – and the winding road that links them – offers a unique vista to the mountain peaks above. Biking the road makes quick work of the 4.3 km to the third and least-visited of the lakes. Don’t forget to pack a snack to enjoy lakeside and take in the view.
