Directions: Situated 20 km to the east of Smithers. Access to Round Lake is off Route 16 either at Woodmere Road or east of Woodmere Road at Round Lake Road.
Description: Round Lake is on the east side of the Bulkley Valley, in the foothills of the Babine Mountains. Round Lake is a smaller, shallow lake popular with canoeists and fisherman. Flyfishing or trolling with lures is an easy way to catch the resident cutthroat and rainbow trout.
A popular driving tour uses Round Lake as its centerpiece. After turning onto Round Lake Road, you are taken on a circular tour through dairy farming country. From various vantage points, you are able to get spectacular views of the four mountain ranges of the Bulkley Valley Telkwa Range, Hudson Bay Range, Hazleton Range and the Babine Mountains. Near the end of the tour, you'll catch a quick glimpse of beautiful Tyhee Lake, just a few kilometers northwest of Round Lake.
