Chinook Lake is a popular little lake in the Crowsnest Pass area of SW Alberta. The lake is stocked by Alberta Environment and is very popular with the fishing and canoeing crowd. The are also over 60 campsites near and above the lake (no power).

The loop trail is a short 2km stroll around the lake, starting at the parking area. My suggestion would be to travel counter-clockwise, for the best views (of Mount Tecumseh)(left). The big mountain to the NE is Crowsnest Mountain(right)
, which you can just see the top half of.


Directions:

Alison Lake is 6km north of Hwy 3 on the Alison Lake road, which is about 10km west of Blairmore.
