Pilot Bay Lighthouse, Kootenay Lake, British Columbia

A short drive along Pilot Bay Road will take you to the trailhead to go to the lighthouse. 

The trail to the lighthouse is about half a kilometre.

The lighthouse was built in 1904 and became active in 1905 to guide the steamboats on Kootenay Lake. It continued to function until 1993.

  1. What a beautiful view from the lighthouse!

  2. A lighthouse not on the ocean is rare. Good find, and I agree with Debra!

  3. That's a lighthouse worth visiting!

  4. I would love to see that lighthouse, it's very unique. I have a fascination with lighthouses and that one is exceptional.

  5. Hopefully the powers that be will keep it in good repair so people can visit and obviously be able to climb up to see the view.
