Access to Mount Revelstoke National Park of Canada is by highway. The community of Revelstoke, 0.8 km southwest of the park, is located almost halfway from Calgary, Alberta, to Vancouver, British Columbia. From the Trans-Canada Highway, most summer visitors drive up the 26 km long Meadows in the Sky Parkway. This winding, paved mountain road leads to the Mount Revelstoke summit, and is the only opportunity in the Canadian national park system for private vehicles to access a mountaintop environment. Parking for summit visitors is located at Balsam Lake, on km 24 of the Meadows in the Sky Parkway. Trailheads for several different hikes are found at Balsam Lake.
