Grueling hike! The entire hike is a scramble up the mountain. Pretty relentless. The final ascent up the boulders is intense. Bring lots of water! Most of the hike is spent in the trees. About 2.5-3hours in you are rewarded with a wonderful view of the water cascading down the mountain from the lake - take a break and take in the waterfall. Another 45 minutes in the trees and finally out for magnificent views! 30 more minutes up the boulder and finally... The lake itself! It is gorgeous!

Good workout and great views. Trail can be a little confusing at times but the gps worked well and most of it was well marked. The track that is featured here was closer to 14km, not the 9.8 listed in the description.

In 3 hours one can hike halfway to pretty Laughing Falls on this trail and back to the Takakkaw Falls parking lot. The majority of the 124 meter elevation gain is acquired on one hill after the spurs for Angels Staircase and Point Lace Falls. Higher, the trail is in generally good condition to the Laughing Falls bridge and campground. Good views of Takakkaw Falls, the Yoho River, and the Daly Glacier along the way.

terrific day of hiking to floe lake. last 3 km were a little difficult as it was a jot jot July day but what a surprise to get to the camp site and e experience a day in the area. played around with a released chunk of ice that floated along side the lake like an east coast iceberg. magnificent day, and met some tremendous folks from all over. Fallen burnt out trees allowed us to experience what heavy winds the previous night can do to change the character of trail. This after considerable work was done with a chain saw the previous to clear the trail. I'd do this again in a heartbeat and will certainly do it again this year.

the hike was 30km out and back from the parking lot not the stated 19km. Very difficult. bring lots of water and Gatorade and fuel snacks. took 6 girls 10 hrs

There is a high amount of foot traffic. Arrive early to find parking, and prepare yourself for lots of stairs. All culminates to a lovely view.

The town offers simple parks and gardens by the waterfront through which you can wander with ice cream, gelato, cinnamon buns, or doughnuts. Grab a seat after the hike and enjoy a beer and pizza, or rent a kayak for a few hours if you're up for more activities.

Worth a trip.

Great day today, the weather was perfect. It’s a little more windy and cold near the falls but that is to be expected with glacier water. Some parts were scarier for me because I’m afraid of heights but even as a beginner hiker it wasn’t too bad. I had my poles and good hiking boots. The elevation is not much and it’s mostly an easy hike, just one steeper section. The falls are awesome and the lake is so blue! By far one of my favorite hikes.

I just completed the entire trail from the east trailhead at Tulemèen to the west end at Hope Bc. It's entire length is 74 km. This map only has the first half. I don't know anyone who does it as an out and back. You require a drop at one end and a pickup at the other. This trail has some great climbs, great scenery and countless mosquitos. Photo ops with wildlife of all kinds from black, brown grizzly bears to deer, moose and a variety of birds

Really great hike with an intense uphill, but definitely worth it for the views at the top! Trail can get super busy as it is very popular, and definitely worth going to the 2nd peak since the top has a lot more room for groups to have their own space to rest and have lunch. Definitely need to be in shape to do this hike especially since at the top you need to pull yourself up using a chain on the rocks.

Great hike with really cool viewpoints! The first three or four viewpoints are the best, but a couple of the viewpoints after that aren't really great because foliage covers them from the trail. The first part is intense uphill switchbacks for about three kms, then it is a nice slow downhill for the rest. Hike took a total of four hours, not very busy either for starting at 10:00 but it was a cloudier day and it was definitely getting really busy by the time we finished.

easy to get to, not too crowded, mamy trails to choose from

Amazing!! Definitely not an easy hike and not clearly marked at times but absolutely incredible. It’s a must if you’re in the area! Approx 4.5 hours

July 15, 2018- There is a steep incline from the beginning and it never ends lol. Wear proper footwear and bring poles if you have them. We ended up using big sticks on the way down because it’s hella hard to not slip due to the sheer steepness. It’s a great workout, covered by trees most of the way, so you shouldn’t burn. We did get bitten by mosquitoes so I’d recommend applying bug spray.

Very nice view at the top and a small clearing to sit for a bit. I’m in decent shape and found this to be a great workout for my legs lol. Didn’t run into any bears. I would NOT recommend this hike when it’s been raining because there’s a high chance you will slip and fall. Prepare to get really dusty as dirt gets kicked up with almost every step. Our little dog was white when we left and brown when we returned LOL. Oh, and bring water!!

Great hike! Started out early, so really didn't see anyone until we started heading down. It was non stop people by then. Arrived just in time at the parking area to stop a guy from blocking us in to our parking spot - guess the overflow on the road wasn't to his liking and double parking seemed to suit him better. Recommend weekday - morning to hike this.

Great hike, did it yesterday. Quite busy on the trail. The last part where you scramble to get to the first brother i found challenging, but overall glad i did it! Bugs were bad past the half way point.

A) Directions to parking leads to a residential area. I suggest finding a better way to get to the trail. We had to walk about 10-15 minutes through homes.
B) Once on the trail, it's beautiful and peaceful. However, the whole area is probably better for mountain biking.

Great hike, it was easy up until the path stopped and then it was moderate to hard from there but don’t let that discourage you; the view was amazing. took me and my girlfriend approx 3 1/2 hours. Would do it again for sure.

Black flies were brutal, still some snow up there but doable in runners - bring an extra pair of socks! Bring more water than you think you’ll need, it was a hot summer day when we did it. Waterfalls were gorgeous, view was amazing.

great hike. nice diversity. options to continue the hike as well.

Great Hike for kids.

Great views of the water- stick to the river! Made the mistake of going through the forest unnecessarily.

amazing view, wow! can see Mara and okanagan lake. bam!

Beautiful trail. Stunning arbutus. I found sections of the trail aren't really run-able: either too steep or loose gravel and steep or too rocky and steep. But the climbs keep you're heart working and the views are lovely. Saw clear to Mt Baker today.

very touristy but a beautiful trail nonetheless :)

I am so glad that I have found this easy approach wonderful trail to hiking. Also the very short trail is covered by tree shadows all the way to the lake which makes summer day hiking do not have to go early morning. Very good place and I will be coming here soon again for sure.

Very challenging rrail, half of it not well marked. Bring lots of water and food! Beautiful place!

The view along this walk is amazing. Lots of great sights and many places to stop for a few and relax. A walk you shouldn’t pass up

Easy trail with gentle inclines and declines around a beautiful lake. Good for a relaxing stroll anytime of the day or an energetic run.
