This was a very tough hike up, it was our first hike and we are not in shape. The first part is straight up , it never seems to end. The lake is worth it , beautiful views and lots of fish jumping. The camping is great , lots of spots , lots of fire pits and home made benches.

Amazing views and camping sites. 10/10 would reccommend.

A good moderate hike. It takes about 45 - 60 minutes to hike to the lake. About the same time to go around the lake. The trail head is at the parking lot West of the Eagle Lake campground on the north side. There are outhouses and an info board. OHVs and horseback riders also share the trail so be mindful of the other users. Enjoy!

Great trail. Easy to find. Fantastic for dogs and kids. Both loved playing in the water.

Don't know why this is rated as moderate, we scrambled at least half of this hike and it was a tough one. It's doable but I would not recommend it to first time or inexperienced hikers. Lots of opportunity to get lost and make mistakes!
Great view at the top and at the lake!

My girlfriend and I ran this trail July 15 2017, the trail GPS distance was actually 38.6km. There has been a washout recently about 4km before the junction that has changed the trail from a moderate, fun trail to a difficult, high consequence one. Experienced route finding is needed to navigate above the river's edge; I would suggest anyone braving it to be equipped with poles. All in all a great trip, we finished our return trip in just over six hours. There are some great camp spots along the way.

We hiked this trail this weekend. I was looking forward to it because it seems to have good reviews, but the first 2/3 is quite a grind uphill, and I've had nicer views as a reward. For maybe the 20 minutes (total) of the hike we were able to see glimpses of Abraham Lake, but I don't doubt that other hikes in the area have better views. Allstones Lake was nice but nothing spectacular. We likely wouldn't do this trail again but it wasn't awful.

very steep hike pretty tough but so worth it to get up to the top. i suggest getting there around 8am or so. was nice hiking up without the blazing heat! at that time not very many people going up. we came down and got to the bottom at about 3pm lots of people coming up the mountain at like 1pm.
if you are going to do the summit bring some gloves. you will be going up small gravel and shale. very slippery and nice to have the gloves to grab onto big rocks etc.....

Quite a grind up. The first few hours feel like you are straight
Uphill. Once you get about 60% up, the terrain changes to meadow type, with lots of really nice colours and scenery. It took us about 3.5 hours to get up and 2 to get back. Nice hike, but have it a 3 star as it's really hard walking to get up to a nice spot, but other hikes like kinglet I find give a nicer reward. Happy hiking !

Of course you must take the steep decline to get to the falls !! its not that bad ! it's beautiful down there you can actually sit on the rock beside the falls. I'm shocked to read that people just stopped at the top !

We just did this trail last weekend. For beginners to backpack in, it definitely challenged us. The views were amazing, and getting to camp next to the lake was a fantastic experience. It is a very well used trail, with lots of traffic and a surprising number of people backpacking in, so if you're looking to be alone in the wilderness, that will probably not happen. Overall a great experience.

July 15 2016, This was my second trip up, the weather was pretty crappy the first couple days, creeks were overrunning, with rushing water, and the thunder of rocks moving, some of the path was washed away. We meet some people as we made our way up that had turned bad, it turned out to be a pretty good trip. looking forward to the next trip in a few weeks or so.

Beautiful hike. I managed to get a bit lost right off the bat because I am apparently a potato, but it's a pretty easy area to quickly regain your bearings. The lake was beautiful, and about 20 min after pitching my tent (which is a hammock), a marmot wandered through my site and literally right underneath me. Little buggers are everywhere and adorable. Great hike, starts off nice and easy, and then an enjoyable amount of elevation gain for the last third or so of the hike in. Lots of sites at the lake, all pretty far from each other. Fishing is apparently pretty good too, according to a few guys I talked to on the way in.
