The entrance to the park is less than 5 km from Revelstoke down town. There's only one way in which is a 26 km road winding uphill with trails and viewpoints along the way. You get a map at the entrance which tells you very briefly about everything so it's very easy to figure out what to do and how to get there. You can get to the summit of the mountain in 3 ways: hike all the way or park 1 km before the summit and hike the last 1 km or take the free shuttle bus. There's several trails to choose between, I liked the 5.5 km hike to Miller Lake (11 km and 3-4 hours in total).
Mt. Revelstoke National Park recommend that you bring bear spray and hike in groups. But it was not mandatory as it was on several trails in Banff, Jasper and Lake Louise (where you should hike in groups of min. 4 people due to bears. I'm sure this is seasonal but it was effectuated in September 2013 and could result in a USD 5,000 fine if not followed). So as a party of two it was easier to explore Mt. Revelstoke NP.
Another huge advantage was the very few people: We had Miller Lake all to ourselves for half an hour while eating lunch. Speaking of lunch I did not see any shops or restaurants in Mt. Revelstoke so remember to bring your own food and drinks.
