A nice way to end the old growth trail before stopping At the lodge for a beer.

Great hike with view points through and old cedar and fir Forrest. Cool huge trees. Do the lake trail at the top before stopping at the lodge for a beer.

We had two kiddos and a husband on crutches, so we only managed to get to the first lake, which is practically outside the parking lot, and even that was stunning. I can't wait to go back and do the full hike to see the other two.

Gorgeous hike that accommodated our kids and a husband toughing it out on crutches. I've never seen water such a beautiful turquoise color like that. Would hike it again in a heartbeat.

Beautiful short trail. The suspension bridge is incredibly busy with tourists. However, the trail itself is much calmer. Took about 35 mins a decent pace.

We hiked this August 11th-12th for one overnight. I want to start of with saying that my car got broken into and badly vandalized! Such a shock to find my car that way, I bought the vehicle 10 days ago! :(. They tried prying open the hood, broke the front grill, smashed a window, damaged things underneath the steering wheel, everything was turned upside down, they undid the battery. I couldn't even drive it home. After hitch-hiking to town to get phone reception I was able to set everything in motion (police, tow truck, ICBC, etc.). It was a very sad and stressful day. There were more cars with broken windows, but my car seemed the only vandalized. Be careful out there, however I am unsure how I could've prevented vandalism like that..

About the hike. It was amazing, and steep! We were in cloud cover, but still had a fantastic time camping up at Upper Pierce Lake.

Good change to an alpine hike from more typical lower mainland trails. Nice flowers, butterflies and birds as well. The views at the top are supposed to be great but visibility today was limited due to smoke. It was still really good even though I didn’t get the “full experience” at the top. The trail itself is in excellent condition though the same cannot be said for the road. The road has a lot of washout but they are really solid bottomed so you don’t need to worry about anything but clearance.

Great area and trails are dog friendly. The ravine near the playground in the park does not connect to further trail. Visit the ravine spot then return to Hedley road and continue south down the hill and you can pick up the trail behind the tennis court. This is a hidden gem

Easy hike and beautiful lake.

This is ‘my church’, where I go to soothe my soul and my soles. It’s a perfect combination of hills and flat. Excellent for training. If you are not a dog person, it should be avoided.

Nike, challenging day hike. Very foggy up top so will be doing this again on a clear day. Took our group just a bit under 5 hours to get from parking lot to summit with a few water and picture breaks. Puppy made it to emergency shelter with ease but I backpacked her up to the peak and down. Crossing snowfield was not necessary as we could easily go around what was left of it. Pretty easy up to Alder Flats and getting steeper after that. I drank almost 5 liters of water and it wasn’t that hot so bring lots of water.

Unfortunately, the lower portion is closed right now but the upper part is great. Pretty views of the falls and river.

We did this loop in the middle of August. We started at 5:45 am. The trail was overall good, but the lower parts on the west side had tall grass and shrubs to walk through. Definitely recommend wearing full water proof gear from the waist down. The east side of the trail was beautiful, and smelt like fresh pine the whole way. Lots of nice scenery and cool rocks. The east mountain side was our favourite. Overall took us 4.5 hours. There is also a nice cabin at the North intersections.

Beware to those staying overnight: when we arrived Sunday morning, we saw that the cars of those who stayed over Saturday night were broken into. At least 4 cars had their windows smashed and one vehicle had the grill stolen off their car and the front hood and back door was banged up. Don't leave any valuables behind!

The hike itself is beautiful but very steep and hard on the knees (I recommend hiking poles/sticks for the way down). We went straight to Upper Pierce Lake - took 4 hours up and 3 hours down. It was very cold at the top despite it being very hot and muggy for most of the way up - bring layers and lots of water!

Holy smokes this hike is incredible! This was our first backcountry camping trip. I wouldn’t consider this a difficult hike however there is one section of 4km uphill which is tough when you’ve got a heavy bag on your back. Even though it was a little smokey Kinney Lake was breath taking, emperor falls was insane and Berg lake was unbelievable. We couldn’t hike Mumm Basin or toboggan falls due to a rock slide so went out to Snowbird Pass which actually left us speechless. A long old hike but the Icefield was like being on another planet. I’m so keen to go back next summer before wildfires hit.

Some people were hiking out to berg lake and back just a one day. With an early start and reasonably fast pace I feel that it is do able.

Nice easy short hike. Took just over an hour at a brisk walk.

I would recommend taking a bicycle on this trail as it is quite long. Really good long distance running trail too! Pretty much anyone can ride a bicycle as well as the vertical grade is nonexistent (I.e., it’s flat). There were a lot of small children out the day we went, some even with the training wheels on. One of the best trails I’ve ever done. Really unique and quite beautiful. We took a tonne of photos. Rented bikes at the start for 40$ each and completed it in about 2.5 hours.

We went mid-day on a Saturday, so it was pretty busy. If you ride a bike it’s best/safest to let other bicyclists pass from the opposing direction first. You don’t want to be that d*ck creating unnecessary trouble for others. I would recommend trying to do this early or mid-week to avoid the crowd.

Love Rolley Lake trail we go every week, it is pretty easy and a nice hike, there is some rocks, tree roots and logs to walk over but nothing much at all.

The Rolley lake falls however is not easy at all. the trail its self is difficult to find and there are areas that you are not even sure your on the right path.

I go hiking with my mom and my 8 year old son and our dogs and this trail was a little difficult.

Beaware it takes a longer then expected time and where you have to go down you have to come back up again.

There are many big rocks, logs, roots and fallen trees to climb over and at one time it looks like there were stairs but they are all worn away now.

There should be two different entrys on this page about the two different trails and different ratings.

The hike is quite boring as it’s all switch backs, but... the lake is epic and the hike is a steady elevation making it pretty doable :)

Great trail - but I would say it’s a difficult climb - due to distance and variation in terrain- nice glaciar cold lake at the top. Pretty busy on the weekend.

Did the trick for being local and easy to access. Was not overly scenic but was still a few nice hours in the outdoors.

Amazing!!! Super hard hiking but it is worth it!!!

Similar approach as many NW hikes- many switchbacks then alpine lake at the end. We did the loop through the lovely meadow and through Taylor Creek camp. Very glad we arrived in the afternoon - this was the worst crowd at a trail that I have seen since those inside Zion National Park.

Really liked this trail. It was a good workout to the lake. Had our friends dog with us and only encounter hikers on our way up to the lake. We were at the lake alone. A great hike and very well marked.
