on Bourgeau Lake Trail

1 day ago

Hike it two days ago. It was a great trail up hill all the way. Hour prior to the lake we hit 15 inches of snow but persevered so glad we did. Look forward to doing it again earlier in the season,

Beautiful clear lakes, took a swim in the ice cold water

Good short hike, enjoyed exploring the upper falls.

Good hike, not very strenuous. Next time I'll bring my fishing rod.

Went as far as Wall Lake, good place have lunch and enjoy the view.

Great hike, with spectacular views, took the Hell Roaring Falls trail on the way up, separated us from the boat load of people going up, and able to do this part of the trail while still full of energy.

2nd time attempting this. First time was mid July and had to abandon it when lightning took over. Also didn't have a vehicle that could drive right to the trail head.

Yesterday was the 2nd time and drove right to the trail. Unfortunately I never left enough time. I absolutely love this hike. Shortly after you get out of the tree line you have a lot of wind and a few centimeters of snow.

Take layers and I would suggest a balaclava right now, spikes and polls.

enjoy!

lovely short hike. beautiful scenery and came across a geocache.

Shorter hike but definitely a good workout, great views.

A good place to spend a warm sunny afternoon playing around on the rocks and in the water. A fun place for kids to explore.

Just attempted this (Oct 21st) with a couple of friends and if it wasn’t for the snow and sudden drop in temperature, I think I would have given this a 5-star rating. When we reached Lillian Lake, we attempted to go upto the Galatea Lakes, but the snow was too much and too steep. Also, Lillian lake was all covered in snow. Would recommend to hike this in the summer.

Nice hike even with snow and limited visibility.

I did this hike the weekend after I did pocaterra ridge. They are in perfect view of each other. We did Elbow lake, Elbow pass, Tombstone pass then both the lower and upper Tombstone lakes. It was a long hike but the scenery was phenomenal.

I have to go back to this one as it kicked my ass so hard. But even though I didn't reach the summit, easily some of the most breath taking views.

Awesome! Pretty great sights, a decent amount of traffic, the larches in autumn are magnificent.

Loved this hike. Pretty tough, switch backs we're a killer but the views were incredible.

Nice easy chill hike.

Really beautiful both is summer and winter, but also very busy. The canyon is great for all ages, getting to the inkpots is a bit tougher but they are really interesting.
