Hiking

We did this hike about a month and a half ago. We did the full 22 km hike since most of it is just a scroll with a view of a lake I would recommend that you just do the last 3km to the top! The view was definitely nice kinda busy, but it was much chillier and windier so dress accordingly for that!

We did this hike a little over a month ago, it was BEAUTIFUL. I would definitely recommend doing it cause it was pretty chill as far as elevation and terrain but stunning views the whole time. It would be a great hike for a cloudier or misty day cause you aren’t just climbing a mountain to have no view!

Some muddy patches that made the more challenging descents extra hard. Other than that, gorgeous trail, gorgeous weather.

Great but icy! Ice started in the first km or so and just got worse from there. I wouldn’t try this without microspikes (you could, but it will be a bad time!). Lots of people slipping, etc.

Planned a basic hike/snowshoe up to the lake. Saw a fellow hiker breaking trail down the shore and decided to follow. When we caught up, we decided as a group to attempt the ridge taking turns breaking trail. it turned out to be a grueling 2.5 hour trek in waist deep snow up to the ridge but worth every moment of effort for the views. Highly recommend this hike. Don't recommend that most do the ridge in the winter. Skill, endurance and safety are required to head up the ridge but the hike to the lake is doable for most!

Mon coup de cœur cette année! le nez de l’indien et la montagne verte valent les efforts pour accéder à toute la beauté des sommets! Enneigé en ce moment...:)

HikingGreat!

Have walked many times. I would rate this trail as visually great, mostly flattish, a tad longish for an easy rating, but not very hard. Only a few harder sections involve climbing and rockhopping through drainages (though they can be difficult after rain or spring runoff..best to do an out and back from Cape Spear to the halfway point around North Head at those times). That section is all-season winter and summer. Note: Even though close to town, much of the trail is out of cell range. Don't count on access to online maps/emergency services at all times.

For someone used to living in the prairies, the first 6km was rough. Next time I wont bring pretzels lol since I got attacked by one hungry bird. Other than that, it was beyond beautiful and so happy I did it!!

We hiked the trail all in one day on Oct 24, starting as soon as there was enough light. Temperatures were around -5 degrees, there was some snow on the trail but it didn't pose any issues until we got near the top, where the waterfall runs beside the rock face: Due to the spray and freezing temperatures the entire rock face was black ice. From here to the top was very tricky, we managed it wearing spikes, other hikers turned around. Due to the limited daylight hours we just had time to return to the trailhead before dark , so no chance to go to Burg lake this time of year unless you camp or are much faster than us (and we're reasonably fast... ). The views of the lake and surrounding mountains are well worth it, just make sure you're prepared for a very long hike in the cold!

Belle randonnée de 2 jours. ça vaut vraiment la peine de camper au lac Sandbag, la vue est splendide. La montée jusqu'au 1er lac est monotone mais par la suite les points de vue deviennent intéressants. Le sentier n'est pas toujours évident à suivre. Après le 1er lac il y a une section très abrupte, il y avait de la glace et de la neige. 2 personnes avant nous ont rebroussé chemin car leur chien ne pouvait monter.

Sentier de "marde" tellement c'était boueux. Désolé pour l'excès de langage. Le sentier Inter-centre était très beau et bien entretenu. Les 700 derniers mètres avant le Belvédère étaient très glissants, alors nous avons décidé de continuer sur le sentier le Mésangeai. QUELLE ERREUR ! Nous avons eu à faire au moins 3 km de descente dans la boue (marde). c'en était dangereux. J'ai failli tomber plusieurs fois. ce awnti

The trail is not very hard, but because of the snow it was quite icy, wear crampons, that will help getting there and back faster and safer. The scenery was beautiful, and the snow made it even more special.
