One of Knox Mountain's lesser-known pathways, this trail leads you to the serene water basin that is Kathleen Lake.

To reach the lake, follow the path behind the gate located between the first (Crown) and top (Apex) lookouts (about 1.12 km from Crown Lookout on the right). It takes you on a loop around the lake where several plants and animals such as deer, coyote, cougar and bear habituate.

Hikers are advised to stick to the pathway as the area is recovering from heavy off-road use. This trail is often shared by cyclists.
