Rice Lake is near the trailhead to Lynn Headwaters Park and there is a 1 kilometre connecting trail from there to the Rice Lake trail.  There is also the more convenient parking lot at the Rice Lake trailhead at the end of Lillooet Road.

There are several picnic areas and viewing areas with seats around the lake as there is quite a variety of wildlife in the area as well as some impressive Douglas Firs and Western Red Cedars. Fishing is also fairly popular at Rice Lake as it is stocked frequently with catchable sized rainbow trout.  There is a large fishing dock perfectly located for fishing.
