Nice day hike! The water is amazing. Super refreshing.

This is a reasonably steel hike, it starts out in the woods and you be going uphill through them for the first 4 kilometers or so. After that it flattens out when you enter the Alpine meadows.

Absolutely beautiful hike. Wildflowers are blooming up in the meadows and the snow starts soon after that. I didn't end up going to the lake as I didn't fancy picking my way down the snowy slope to it so instead I climbed up to the peak.

The path of to a peak was a bit of a slippery scramble in the snow, I ended up using my poles as makeshift ice axes and I wouldn't do it without microspikes. Once you get you the peak you're treated with an amazing 360 view of the surrounding mountains. If you decide to head up to the peak when the snows gone I'm sure it would be much easier though.

Hiked and camped up at Statlu lake. The road in was well maintained and perfectly doable in our low clearance 2wd. As long as you're careful and drive slow you should have no problems.

The trail up to the lake is alright. For the most part it's fairly flat, though there are some short steeper segments and it is overgrown in places.

Once you reach the lake there are a handful of spots you can camp in, however there are practically no spots after that until you reach the other side of the lake. We went up on a weekend and found all the good spots taken so we ended up going out to the waterfall looking for spots to camp. Unfortunately we found nothing, though we were told afterwards that there are camping spots at the end of the lake. The trail towards the waterfall was pretty overgrown in places and forks off to Upper Statlu lake just before the waterfall. If you plan on heading to the other end of the lake you will need to get your feet wet crossing a shallow Creek as well.

Overall the lake is very beautiful and it's a great place to camp. I would rate the hike as moderately difficult.

short hike. done in mid june. hlaf of the trail was still covered by snow. bring your crampons. rewarding when you reached the summit.

one of the best hikes I've been on!!

Definitely need a 4x4 to get to mount cheam. If you don’t like we didn’t we walked the road 12km in. We didn’t get to the peak not enough day light and or time add on another round trip of 4hrs to the peak and back down to the car it would of been late. Traveled June 15th. Lots of snow still up at cheam.

Nice hike, quite relaxing. Lots of places to have a seat and relax at the lake. If you're brave, jump in for a cold swim! Camping is also an option but there a fee. Cayaking is also an option here! Check it out!

great hike on snow shoes very crisp and sunny day in February followed two cross country ski tracks snow got deep but persisted good day beautiful views.

Nice hike, the steepest part right at the beginning. If boulders are your thing, you will have fun:) some campers at both lakes on a weekday, unfortunately making fire and leaving trash/food around.

Lindeman lake is much more beautiful and I wouldn't continue to Greendrop a second time, unless I wanted the workout. View is not all that. Would love to have looped back via Flora but reviews of poor trail put me off.

Tried accessing trailhead today, no luck. I had to turn around after about 1k from the main road when road got too sketchy for my rental 4WD. DId see a larger truck coming down the forest service road though so someone made it further.

Loved this hike! The scramble was rad - definitely my highlight next to the view from the top. A must-do!!

Steep short climb but worth it for the views on the way up and at the top. Should be rated at least moderate.

I now understand the reason this is a popular trail. It is a relatively easy, considering the rewards.
At least on weekends, it is a very busy trail, so I would pick a regular business day to avoid crowds
The lake is gorgeous, but you have to be really brave to dip into these waters since it is cold.
Still worth the effort. The lake is amazing.

Short and sweet ascent. Tricky FSR drive in. Had to rescue a few people after their cars didnt make it. 4WD and high clearance is necessary. Insist on doing this on clear day as the views down the valley are amazing.

Hiked this trail the other day. I used GPS markers from another website to navigate to the trailhead and then keep track of where we were. It looked very untouched, no other footprints in the snow and fresh animal poo on the trails. The second bridge was no where to be found so we went through it with our shoes on there and back as there was no safe way to scramble across on rocks. It was difficult to navigate prior to that. The assent to the lake and waterfalls was much better. We made it to the beautiful eastern campsite area to soak in the views before heading back. We would have liked to do the rest but there was still hard packed snow and finding the trail would have proved challenging. The hike itself is not difficult.

This was our first hiking and we loved it!!

Absolutely 100% worth it, but you will need a 4x4 or something with good clearance to make it up the service road, Incredible views from the peak aswell. will be doing again one day

Fun hike, lake wasn’t quite worth it though, squelchy and not the best for swimming, although very nice and cold after a hot summer hike.... didn’t go further to Mt Webb which might have made it more worth it.

Doing it again this weekend, last time was 2015 when I first visited BC. Loved it then! No need for snowshoes, well used and packed down apparently. Unless going further to Greendrop, which is less well trodden.

Beautiful but go early because it’s way to popular and gets real busy.

.... parking lot is right on the highway so access is super easy ....excellent views of the area once out of the trees and to the false summit ... although fun exploring, the views from the true summit were non existent due to tree cover and you will have a choice to make since there is a rather steep decent and and then more uphill to reach it . ( but ,hey .. why not if you have time)

Great day with amazing clear blue skies. A bit cold for the dogs, -22 or so but they survived. Once we got past the tree line it got a bit windy so we turned around about 1/2km from the top. Beautiful scenery throughout and the trail is well tracked so very easy to follow. Took us about 2 hours up and one down. Definitely would like to come more frequently but road conditions on the connector and coquihalla are just terrible this time of the year. Witnessed several vehicles off the road and one three car pile up. Road was closed temporarily on our way home due to MVA.

Steep but short hike up to Lindeman (take polls if you have them). The autumn colours are lovely. Great place for a dip in the summertime.
Lots of boulder hopping to Greendrop. I personally found this lake less attractive so would stop at the far end of Lindeman next time.

Only made it to the 5.5km mark up and had to turn back due to snow and being so slippy.
