A good leg burner, the lake was a nice spot to stop and have lunch on top of a big boulder. Saw a few people along the way (did this hike in the summer of 2016), but it wasn't too crowded. A marmot poked his head out of the brush to investigate on our way back down. We stopped at borgeau lake, but perhaps next time will continue on to Harvey lake.

A little mucky at this time of year, nice views of the valley from the top

Lots of snow but a great hike! Stay on the well groomed narrow trail for a good hike. Excellent views at the top around Rawson lake

This was a really nice trail. It was my first time on this trail, I had my dog with me and it was very nice. The weather was 6C and mainly sunny. There was one very large ice patch close to the start of the trail, just before the "legs of fire stairs" after that the trail was mostly dry the odd muddy patch here and there. Very little traffic I saw 4 people, however it was a Friday afternoon (12-1pm). All in all great trail I will have to come back and do it again.

wait for the snow to melt.... we blazed a trail through 4ft deep snow. added a good two hours

Nice and close to the city, lots of ups and downs. A pretty decent view from the top. We went on a Saturday in April and we only saw 3 other groups of people on the whole trail, that part was nice as our dog likes to be off leash.

I love this hike. LOVE. It's my favourite hike to take friends with kids or new/rookie hikers. Huge view pay offs with only a bit of effort... but still enough effort to feel like something was accomplished. I wish it were a couple kms longer... but apparently you can go in deeper, gunna try that this season!

Great way to start off the hiking season. Nice moderate hike
