The Teapot Hill trail is one of the most popular trails located next to Cultus Lake (short walk from the resort) and offers a short hike uphill with a view of the lake. Park in the Teapot Hill parking lot and start the hike, heading uphill. After 100m, there is an outhouse and park map on your left. Continue heading up the service road, passing by a stream and groves of mixed deciduous and coniferous trees. After about 20-30 minutes, a sign will be posted that points to Teapot Hill off to the right. Continue along this path passing a sign that describes the area flowers that include Stinging Nettle, Western Columbine, Tiger Lily, and Trillium.

A steep hill is an indicator that you are almost there. After ascending the hill, the trail levels out and you come to the first view of Cultus Lake. Stop to take it in briefly before continuing along the trail for another 100m to the second viewpoint that overlooks the lake and Columbia Valley towards the USA. Stop to have a break here or make your way back to the previous viewpoint before descending back down the hill towards the parking lot.
