We finished the loop and then ran into a big black bear going onto the Red Mountain trail and had to turn back.

Hiked this trail every year for 4 years.

Absolutely beautiful

It looks like a lovely place to hike but no where does it say that dogs are prohibited until AFTER you’ve driven up the 16k dirt road. I recommend the park service let folks know at the bottom of the hill. Still, I plan on returning as it looks lovely. Don’t try driving up in a low clearance vehicle.

Fun hike, beautiful views. Primarily for mountain biking, but fine for hiking.

The 10 mi road to the TH is challenging for street-only vehicles. The trail rises steadily to a string of stunning subalpine lakes. Nelson was 92 and blanketed in smoke, but it was 75 and nearly clear on the trail. Well worth the drive and hike.

Such a beautiful hike! Once you get close to the lakes the scenery is greener and the hike is more enjoyable. We didn't hike all the way to the glacier, but stopped for a picnic in the valley where we could see the glacier. Definitely a good hike to do in the summer. We went in August and the lake water was freezing so don't anticipate swimming! Good for a refreshing/freezing dip if you're into that!

Hiked in to the center of the park and stayed at the Slocan Chief Cabin. First time was with my wife in the late 70's from the Nelson side from Gibson Lake and then again in the early 80's with Ken and Kelly Kern from the Slocan side via Enterprise Creek. It's not a really big park, but packs in a lot of spectacular scenery.

Breathtaking. Completed the hike in late July, camped at Kaslo lake. Beautiful glacier, wildlife, lakes, rocks, everything! Looking forward to returning in the fall!
