Galatea lake is beautiful but this trail is so busy! We spent half our time stopping to allow people to pass on the way there. I would recommend starting late ie we started around 3pm and then you get the lake almost to yourself and the hike back is low traffic.

Good hike with a great lake views. We enjoyed it! The trail is completely fine after the bridge, and there were plenty of people hiking it on a Saturday. Apparently there was a bear with a cub seen at the lakeside today, we didn’t cross paths though.

Great!Off trailRocky

Rocky trail was killing me, beyond that the hiking was perfect itself in such a sunny day!

This was an amazing hike! Spectacular views from start to finish - a slow and steady climb (nothing too strenuous) with a huge variety of colourful wildflowers the whole way. The lakes were pristine and stunning as well. It’s worth walking beyond the first. The only downside is that this is definitely not a trail for “social/physical distancing” - the trail is pretty narrow for the majority of the way to the lakes (and around the third one). People tried to make space for one another, but only as much as was possible with the hundreds of people out there on Saturday!

Beautiful trail, fantastic views. The forest part feels like a calming, nurturing energy (for those of you who are into it!). The trail is pretty muddy, you need sturdy hiking shoes. There’s a rocky/scree part but it’s manageable. The views along the way are just breathtaking. Take a bear spray as we’ve seen paw prints in the mud.

Hiking

Well, just hiked the whole thing with my pup. It was also 44.5k for us. It's great to see all the new bridges that remove the river crossings! The climb was more than expected, but we also went clockwise, which was definitely harder. Although, as the hike was nearing completion and my feet were long past dead, it was nice to have a more gradual decent. If we had gone counterclockwise, we would have done the full summit before completing 22k, and it still would have left some steep ups and downs. For a bike I agree counter would be best, but hiking I think clock would be best. I loved the stream across the trail at the summit, it sure refreshed us with a soak of my hat, and a face dip right into the stream! I also love the cold mountain water to hydrate! I don't know if I'd hike it again, it more than doubled my previous distance record, and I was so mentally and physically fatigued by the 35th kilometre. It was a beautiful hike though, and my pup was such a trooper, even having enough energy to want to catch up to another dog up ahead us near the end! Took us 8:14 but we never stopped for more than 6 or so minutes. Without service, I didn't want to delay too long. This hike would be perfect if staying overnight at one of the backcountry camping sites!

HikingBugsNo shade

Good hike, not difficult, our 7yo twins were able to follow up and enjoy it. Not too crowded, couple of mountain bikers but really respectful. Bring bug spray, most of it is in the forest. After the highest point (6km), almost no shade until the end, but that is the part where we get the scenic views.

Loved doing this trail. It's a long way to Three Isles Lake (the last km is very rocky and steep, poles recommended) but definitely worth it. There is a campground there if you want to stay overnight and do this in 2 days. More trails are nearby too. From the parking lot at the Upper lake, to Three Isles and back again took just under 8 hours with stops for food etc. The trail very rocky in spots and lengthy (NOT suitable for children under 12 in my opinion), and would be challenging for most dogs too. Very slippery rocky spots near the top- choose your steps carefully! That said, the views are amazing and well worth the trip.

Love this hike. A lot of traffic on the trail today, but plenty of space to step off to the side and let everyone pass. Glad I brought my hiking sticks, walking along the side of the mountain some parts were almost washed out.

Our return trip. A bit quicker than on the way up. We lucked out with gorgeous weather. Should note: all trails are clear, blowdowns have been chopped up, snow almost completely gone (just a couple of spots up past the stairs). The trail is very clear and easy to follow. Forks campground is a great spot to stop for a bite.

Hiking

The worst part is getting to the top at the beginning as the trail is crowded with traffic from Bertha falls. The trail is very easy to follow and has beautiful views the entire time! Can get hot in some parts so be sure to bring water. Would not recommend for those who don’t do well with steep slopes but children 8+ shouldn’t have a problem! Fully enjoyed :)

the creek the previous comments mentioned is flowing low enough to get across dry without any special talent. beautiful flowers the whole way, but especially in the recently burnt sections.
