Flora Lake Trail is a 12.2 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Fraser Valley, BC that features a lake and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding and is accessible from July until October.
Nice hike, took 6 hours to the lake and back. Passed a couple people coming down but had the whole lake to myself
Had a surprise hail storm on the way.
Hard hike! Didn't make it all the way to Flora as the snow made it hard to find the path but still got some nice views.
Flora was fantastic! Her natural beauty and her charm flowed elegantly throughout her trails. I could spend days in her presence. Her birda is cute. Well worth exploring the extensively intimate trails of her body, soul and character.
Just last weekend (May 18, 2015) two of my friends and myself hiked/camped at Lindeman and hiked to Green drop and then Flora and back to the base.
From Greendrop the trail to Flora was often very thin and blocked by fallen trees, and at times hard to find the next marker.
Due to it being May the highest point of the hike, and heading almost all the way down to Flora was covered in snow.
Flora was a challenge, especially with full 60L bags, but if you want a good workout and a hilly, rocky hike give it a go.
If I were to do this hike again I would do it from base to Flora and out through lindeman.
The loop is long and not very well maintained in many places. The trail is poorly marked which can make it confusing. There is also lots of Devil's club encroaching on the trail. Lots of tiring scree fields. Beautiful views at the top of Flora peak of Chilliwack Lake and the surrounding mountains. I would advise going straight up and down Flora, as opposed to doing the loop from Lindeman to Greendrop to Flora, as the loop is not really worth it and isn't much easier than going straight up and down. There are a couple of decent campsites at Flora Lake and it makes for a nice overnighter.
