Two Jack Lake
The soft crunching of sunbaked pine needles underfoot blends in with the happy calls of lakeside revellers along the Two Jack Lake shoreline trail. The pines give off a soothing scent from the forest and over the lake to the delight of hikers, paddlers and picnickers.
Across the lake, the iconic summit of Mount Rundle rises serenely above it all. Visit in the evening golden hour to watch as the setting sun illuminates the sky behind Rundle before shifting into rosy twilight.
