The loop pathway is considered an easy-going, level pathway measuring approximately about 1.5 kilometres. Much of the pathway is exposed to the elements with little shade provided. Bring sunglasses and a hat.

The pathway looping around Sunshine Lake connects to - and is part of - the Happy Trails Pathway. The Happy Trails Pathway explores the community of High River, Alberta east to west.

The pathway in the Sunshine Lake area, the lake itself, the large sprawling grass lawns, the sightseeing benches and the Happy Trails Pathway provide an opportunity for many activities in High River, Alberta.
