The view up top is well worth the work. Be careful of the map provided here as it took us up the old route which was still a trail but largely grown in and lots of bush whacking. If you open the map look for the "New watersprite trail" which is black dotted line I believe. Where we parked there were people siting in their rifles when we came back down. We did not park in the proper place but we did park at the old trail head.

Great trail - you defiantly need a high clearance car and AWD - though our Tesla model S worked with on the “extra high suspension” VERY Nice hike, however once you hit the boulders it’s gets a little rough, however, the view at the end is all worth it. No bear sightings.

Maybe this was a moderate trail before but isn't now. You can make it with light packs but having all your gear make it a very difficult trail. Few washouts - one after the river and one on the final stretch to Rampart Ponds where it would be too dangerous to continue with all our gear. I'd probably hike just to Opal Cone as the alpine Meadows were amazing as well as Opal Cone itself. Still would rate it on the moderate to difficult especially if you're not an avid hiker

Very, very long day from trailhead. Better done from Elfin Lakes campground. Spectacular view. Glaciation meets volcanism.

This is not a moderate trail. Definitely hard. It’s a long hike with lots of inclines and declines. We did it in one day out, overnight, and one day back. And it was gruelling. BUT, it was absolutely amazing to experience and see. Definitely pack a tent and overnight at Rampert Ponds.

Great day hike off of Elfin Lakes! Would be pretty intense to do it as a single day hike. We camped, did Opal Cone in the morning, and hiked out right after. The trail is very up and down, so the return route is no easier than the route there. That being said, the destination is magnificent! Well worth it.

Went from parking lot to rampart ponds. Parts of the trail were washed out but was easy to get around. Stunning views the whole hike. Bugs were a bit bad but not horrible. Saw 2 bears. Lots of up and down the whole way - very quiet trail past Elfin lakes.

Great route to add in to a camping trip to Elfin Lakes. Endurance athletes can include in a single day trip from parking lot.

It’s like running on the moon. Terrain is incredible. Some challenging sections as a result of some heavy rains. Be prepared for bears. I have seen several on this route closest to Mamquam Lake.

Awesome hike! Did this from the hut on June 21st. The trail wasn’t always easy to see due to the snow, but we followed another group ahead of us, so sometimes the route would be on a safer track though off the actual trail. Didn’t need spikes or snowshoes, but hiking boots got damp eventually.

It’s quite flat. Difficult to return without skins on.

This is a track of the the winter route. It's a challenging hike in the depths of winter, -20 and 50kph polar winds make it hard but so worth it. The views are amazing, the scenery is breathtaking.

Very well maintained trail (kudos to park administration). Moderate and good for trail running. There was no snow on October 29th yet, so managed to make it in 10 hours

Great trail. Lots of bear activity on this trail. The shelter is well equipped. They have gas burners and big pots for boiling water.
