CampingGreat!Over grownRockyScramble

The trail: took 3 hours up and 2.5 down with 40 pound packs. Pretty over grown in the beginning and we went up on a friday; didnt see a single soul. On the way down on saturday the parking lot was overflowing and there were tons of people going up. Camping: very. Very. Very windy. If its windy or rainy in any way when you go up camp closer to the lake where its less intense. Gorgeous views and very worth it. Rained most of our trip.

Beautiful trail with lots to offer during the hike. The final view is amazing with a ton of great scenery in between. Somehow way colder at the top than we had anticipated, be safe and be warm!

Beautiful trail, well worth the hike. A couple sketchy places and some challenging switchbacks are at the end to be prepared for!

We started at Lake of the Woods , to Pyramid Lake then to Ladyslipper . Very beautiful. Up hill to Ladyslipper Lake . Vista point then down to Ladyslipper. People were swimming . Trail conditions were good . We carried on to Stone City . Loose shale . Easier to go up that trail than to go down I’m certain .

Decent challenge the first 4km or so. Not much traffic, amazing views! Saw my first rattlesnake, so I probably won’t be going back.

RunningGreat!

Absolutely stunning. Water everywhere, views around every corner. I am a trail runner and went fast and light. Poles, Salomon vest, 2.5L water. Hiked all the uphills and ran the flats and the downs. Lots of stops for pictures and swims and generally feeling awestruck at the beauty. Did the whole 41-42k out and back in 6:45 moving time, 7:30 total time. Would love to go back and spend more time at Whitehorse or Kinney. Note that there is over 450m of gain on the way back. It’s not ALL downhills w what the profile says. Also, I forgot my water tabs and decided to see if carrying 2.5L was enough. It hit 30C that day (Aug 4) and I barely had enough. If you are doing this trail in one day I’d highly recommend taking a life straw or bottle with a filter. There is water everywhere. Only one 4K stretch without it. A must do trail!

Good intermediate trail. Here are my notes for those who haven't been before. The last 10km of the road to get to the trailhead is gravel with some rougher bits, so be aware. I did fine in my subcompact but there were a few big potholes to avoid. Overall the trail is well maintained with no technical bits or climbing. The intermediate rating, in my opinion, is really due to the sheer length of the hike. At a moderate pace with full overnight packs and stopping to enjoy the view a few times, it took us about 3 hours on the way up and 2 hours on the way down. The first half of the trail has some beautiful views peaking through the trees, but is otherwise a bit of a steady uphill slog. The middle is marked by the Red Heather hut, and after this the terrain becomes more interesting. There's beautiful views throughout the entire second half, but again nothing technical. The lakes themselves are a bit underwhelming, but the views of the mountains from the tent pads are wonderful. The shelter was closed when I was there but the communal hut for eating and washing was clean and well maintained. Overall a great intermediate hike for those just getting into that kind of distance.

HikingGreat!Rocky

Have completed lindeman lake a handful of times, it’s quick and steep, but doable for most physical activity levels. Quite a few people were wearing flip flops and carrying nothing but a small water bottle. Would advise to be more prepared: hikers/runners, more water, first aid kit, you just never know regardless of the length of hike! Reached Greendrop in a little under 2 hours, the variety of vegetation after Lindeman is gorgeous and much of the trail has been updated! Well worth the steep climb to Lindeman. It is quite levelled from then on, but scrambles and a handful of fallen trees at the very end does add difficulty! Greendrop does not offer as many areas to sit by the lake and is more shaded than Lindeman. Spotted 4 tent pads.

Great hike. Very difficult scramble at the top. Your car will 100% get towed. We were left stranded, but thanks to a nice resident in Lions Bay, he was able to drive us back to our car in North Van at the impound.

Hiking

A little difficult to find the so-called detour marked with pylons at the beginning, but otherwise the trail was well marked. It's uphill all the way to the lake on first some gravelly road, through the haunted forest, then up some pretty technical rooty bits. The last 3km is the toughest with the last km+ steep (and slippery after it started to rain) but the payoff was spectacular! If it was a sunny day, it might be worthwhile to schlep up a floatie, but toting in lunch was perfect. Don't forget to apply mozzie spray, it's a bit buggy (and muddy) by the lake. Also hiking poles helped for that steep rooty part!

Amazing hike - trail was well marked and hiking with the sound of the running water ( multiple water falls) was stunning!!

BackpackingRockyScramble

Went up Aug. 6 and returned Aug. 7. It was raining the entire way up, which had made the root sections of the incline more slippery. Definitely waterproof the contents of the backpack well if there is any chance of rain. The part leading up to the panorama shelter had very steep incline that requires serious scrambling. We were lucky to see the brief sunset after strong winds blew away the fog. Some bonuses to hiking in the rain/wet condition are less traffic and barely any mosquitos.

My feet still hurt from this hike. An exceptionally tough hike to do in one day, I’d strongly recommend staying at the camp site (which would have amazing sunrises and sunsets). Bring lots of water. It appears that the bug actually like bug repellant. The summit was spectacular. There’s also an emergency shelter near the top if you need it.

2h10 pour la montée et arriver jusqu'au lac Garibaldi, mais on a marché assez vite. Ensuite pour redescendre on trotinait beaucoup et on a mis environ 10min par km, donc environ 1h30 pour redescendre. En marchant tout le long je me demande comment on pourrait mettre moins que 4h pour faire l'aller-retour. Le paysage est magnifique arrivé en haut!!!!

HikingBugsGreat!MuddyRocky

We live in Alpine Meadows and finally got around to this hike! Definitely worth it and will be doing it more regularly. The lake is cool to climb to once but I think the meadows were the most mesmerizing! The views and little ecosystems throughout are stunning! Can’t wait to come back through with a good camera! Not easy but Wouldn’t call it ‘hard’ either. Not for beginners but there’s definitely harder things out there! Best recommendation- BUG SPRAY
