tried this hike May 23rd, could not get by car to any top parking, had to park on the way. then tried to hike without snowshoe but still too much snow even on the way to the last Parking lot. people told us they went to the meadows (still without snowshoe) but has to U-turn because of to much snow. will go again in few weeks for sure, amazing off-road to access and beautiful hike too!

Awesome trail. Did it on Saturday, little bit busy but still perfect also for dogs!

No snow until final push, summit still covered but some exposed rocks for relaxation. Great views from summit especially with moderate clouds.

Beautiful trail along Lightning Lake. We did this hike on May 19, and there was still significant snow from Strike Camp to Thunder Lake (as per below) so we also did not do the last 5km. Returning via the other side of Lightning Lake makes the loop approx. 17km and is a lovely, relatively easy walk back.

Great trail. Not busy at all for a Sunday morning. Majority of the route is wide and paved with gravel, making it very easy to social distance. I’d recommend going counter clockwise on the trail to experience a climb on the 500 steps.

Steep hike right off the get go. Was able to summit but there were quite a few spots with the snow melting near the top that you could fall through and didn't know if there was stable ground underneath the snow. Great views, with lots of different hiking terrain. Slippery and hard on the knees on the way down but really enjoyed ourselves.

We did today, May 24th. it was a challenge for us. The markers are made far apart(actually we saw quite a few stripes were buried by mud or snow), had to follow; even we had the trail map but got lost and had to climbed up a rocky hill about 500m before the lake. The lake is stunning! And my kids were very excited about the snow and the rock hill challenge. Mosquitoes repellents, hiking shoes, hiking poles are recommended.

Went on May 23. The trails were fairly clear of snow up until the last 5km towards Thunder Lake. We had to turn back because the trail was unclear due to about 4ft of snow blocking our way. Beautiful quiet spots to stop at and enjoy each lake along the way.

Great trails! The lake loop is a nice easy stroll around the lake. Great for all ages. We took a trail up to the campground and hit the falls trail at the northern end. The trail to the smaller upper falls had several *very* muddy spots, over grown areas and fallen trees. Once we were past the bridge and the upper falls, we went downhill along the trail on the North side of the creek. The trail here is steep and fairly rough terrain with some rocky switch-backs. Definitely more of a challenge. Once we came down a ways, we could see two platform areas at which you can have a look at the larger, more impressive lower falls. We continued down this trail until we reached Florence Lake Forest Service Road. We walked across the bridge and made our way back up the hill on the trail’s south side. The trail is longer but less steep and a little more even on this side. There were several fallen trees over the trail in this area. We eventually came to a fork in the trail that lead right back to the original trail back to the campground and Rolley Lake day use area and parking lot (the other direction would lead back to the lower falls).

Great little (moderate) hike to start off the spring/summer hiking season. Not hard at all, but there are moderate slopes up and down. Lovely forest to walk through. We turned left at the fork, so ended up on the moderate trail. Close to home so would go again.

Short hike with a high reward!! The waterfalls are beautiful and I really enjoyed being able to stop and take in the scenery next to the creek/waterfalls. The trail is easy to follow, with markers here and there. There are quite a few families that go up, so depending on how you feel, the earlier the better! My friend and I are beginners at hiking and we got up in about 1/2 hour

The lake and first viewpoint were completely, free of snow. Some compacted snow yesterday, starting from 900m.. On the summit loop, East side was still covered in 1m deep, compacted snow. West side, towards the lookout points(Spahats Rigg) was completely thawed and free of snow. We decided to go to the summit, just to say we did. Its just a forest, so no view. Enjoy.

Beautiful trail. Easy and well suited for the whole family from young children to grandparents. This suspension bridge does not swing or move like Lynn Canyon or Capilano. It is stable for horses and powered vehicles etc. The Elbow trail at the end that leads out to the lookout seems to be missed by most people and they and up going by. This is the nicest part of the hike and the tables at the end are perfect for a picnic.

Hiked to the summit. Snow starts about half way and some of the trail is quite wet. Still a lovely hike!
