Hiking trails abound in the Monashee Mountains around Christina Lake.
Routes range from relaxed creek side rambles, suitable for walkers of any ability, to endurance-testing alpine climbs for experienced trekkers only. Cross the longest railway trestle on the former Canadian Pacific Railway line, plunge into dark tunnels, view hidden Cascade Falls and explore the ghosts of long-gone mining towns. Many of these trails are also ideal for mountain biking and horseback riding.
The Christina Lake community website provides specific information for 13 trails in the immediate area along with an overview map. An additional 48km/30mi of trails lead to lakes and lookouts in Gladstone Provincial Park at the north end of the lake.
