This trail earned its status as being HARD.
10/10 would recommend for the views though. Please be in shape & stretch out those hammies. May the odds be ever in your favour.

Went here may long weekend with friends... this was the second time I’ve done this trail. I did it in July a few years back and it snowed on us. This time in may the lake was still frozen. Amazing hike and great views with camping areas. The trail is steep in areas but well worth the challenge.

Completed this amazing trail August long weekend 2017. The hike in is challenging, it is a long, pretty steady incline over the 16km. Most of the trail was in excellent condition. There were a few areas that had been washed out but we found them to be relatively well marked (not sure why others had trouble?). It took us 8 hours to get in with a few breaks and a lunch stop. Getting out was a breeze - under 5 hours (with 35 pound packs). Definitely bring a fishing rod, the lake has incredible fishing.
I wouldn't rate this trail hard but it's definitely intermediate. Also details say no dogs but that is not true.
I don't generally do the same hike twice, but I'll be back to do this one again.

One of our favorite lakes to go to. Did the small 2.5 km trail as there is a geo cache there we wanted to find. Great trails, was a few downed tree's but nothing that we couldn't get around.

Decent trail for a quick walk. It's nothing spectacular. The trail on the north side of the lake has a lot of roots but is still in decent shape.

The scenery was amazing and the trail easy to follow, the name says it all but worth the effort!

Nice trail all the way to the lake. Took just over an hour at a good pace. Pretty tough trek up to the peak with loose shale all the way up. Not recommended for beginners. Just under an hour to highway, would do again!

Was nice, short and small a little steep in spots but very nice

Awesome views! Lots of snow at the near the top. Didn't make the summit as the buckle was covered with snow which made it pretty risky with no ropes.
