Located directly south of Diana Lake and the headwaters of Pinnacle Creek, and east of the Columbia River, Mt. Norman is an attractive peak with a steep north face, which is the high point of a ridge extending around the W side of Diana Lake.

The peak can be accessed using the trail to beautiful Diana Lake. Take the Kindersley Creek Forest Service just south of Luxor, then take the fork in the road which goes right at approximately grid reference 629242 to head up Pinnacle Creek. There are signs pointing the way to Diana Lake. Follow the road to its end to access the Diana Lake trail which is approximately 6km long.

For more information on the trail to Diana Lake consult Aaron Cameron & Matt Gunn's Hikes around Invermere & the Columbia River Valley guidebook. Diana Lake sits in beautiful Alpine surroundings and is worth a visit at least once.
