Great backpacking hike or long day hike. You steadily gain elevation to the pass for a final push straight up. You then descend a lot of elevation to Egypt lake. The campground is beautiful, well laid out sites, well maintained washrooms and some spots are sheltered with trees. If staying overnight definitely take the time to hike up the whistling valley trail to scarab lake. There is a big waterfall you can get a view of flowing down into Egypt lake. The views are amazing and it’s absolutely worth the extra 4km.
