camped here at the end of Aug. Breath-taking scenery. absolutely worth the trip. We hiked in to cheakamus lake the first night. Made our way to singing creek on day 2. There were a ton of people and not enough camp sites for everyone that made their way in. So go up early if you want a nice spot!

Pros: Easy trail, nice camp sites, absolutely out of this world scenery.

Cons: Obnoxiously over crowded.

beautiful trail, the lake is stunning with the mountain landscape. mountain biked this trail and it was tiring as lots of climbing throughout. on foot it's a breeze.

June 4 2016- spectacular weather made for a really great hike. took a pack, and got a good sweat on some of the ups and downs. this is 10 miles out and back if you go to the end of the trail. I'd rate it easy and very very beautiful. only downside would be the outhouses but patrons play a part in that too.

Nice easy hike and mostly flat. The lake is very beautiful too and even ran into a black bear on the trail. I wish that whoever was in charge of maintaining the outhouses would put toilet paper in there though.

It is a very easy trail for all age groups. Great camping for the family. Stunning lake.

This well maintained trail had everything! River, creek, waterfalls(small) and the lake. I think 5.3 mile round trip takes you to the first campground and back. We passed the campground and went little farther and found a quiet place to sit and enjoy the lake. Our round trip was 5.78 miles and took us little over 2 hours. It was a very enjoyable and fun hike! You can make this hike easy or moderate by adjusting the distance. Not much elevation change and terrain is easy here so kids can enjoy as well.

BTW, someone posted a picture of a bridge. Where is that?? It is not on the trail to Cheakamus Lake.

Good, easy- moderate hike that runs along river to suspension bridge. Nice views. Trail took a little under 2 hours round trip.
