Great for a trail run!

The trail follows right next to the road much of the way. At times it feels like you're hiking on the soft shoulder and the sound of traffic reverberates over the trail which is unfortunate. The trail leads you to the overcrowded day area by Alouette Lake. We walked a little further and found a secluded beach area, luckily. On the way back we did the Loop and Lookout trails which were uninspiring. Our hike was about 18km total (4.5 hours including a lunch break at the lake). I would not do this hike again.

Very nice hike along the forest. The trail is not very popular, so we stumbled upon a bear just a feet away. The bear just left looking at us. Please have a bear bell and a bear spray just in case. The lake is very nice. There is canoe rental place to enjoy the lake.

Last December Golden Ears Provincial park Gate was Closed due to Weather Condition. Our main Goal is to Take a sunrise shot at North Beach of Alouette Lake. But unfortunately, we were not able to bring our snowshoe and the Snow along the way was a little bit deep. So we end up hiking along Alouette lake trail towards South beach. The trail was Ok not recommended hiking with kids during this weather condition. But except for a couple of fallen branches across the trail, It was still easy to navigate because trail markers were everywhere.
