It's worth heading to the campsite... you can walk to the top of the waterfall and get closer to the snow, gives you a whole new perspective. Beautiful hike and it keeps getting better as you go:)

Good trail and hike. The drive to Pemberton involves a bunch of curvy roads with not much traffic. I reached the parking lot at around 1:15 pm and it was full . The shoulder parking and the overflow parking were also full. Luckily, I got a spot as someone had just finished.

The first lake is right down the the trailhead and offers great views and is busy . The hike then starts going uphill and keeps climbing from there. The first part of the uphill is easy till one reaches the steps and rocks . It gets steep here and slippery too. A downhill hiker slipped and hurt herself badly - so be careful out there. Hiking Poles are a must for the downhill part. After climbing up steadily and then thru switchbacks , the hike kind of levels out before reaching the second lake. The lake is beautiful but go along a bit further for good colors and less crowd.

The third lake is easier to reach about 15 mins from the second. There is a lovely waterfalls on the way to the third. The third is full of boulders strewn over. The third lake is gorgeous and it gets chilly out there , so a jacket is a good idea.

The campsites are located on the other end of the lake near the glacier fed waterfalls. Absolutely lovely spot for the camps.

A hike well worth the effort.

I couldn't make it to the peak as it was very slippery.
The views from the first and second peak are amazing. There's no reason to risk going to the peak as there's still a lot of snow.
Crampons can be very useful.
Also, as mentioned before, a lot of bugs all around. It can be very annoying.

Excellent trail. A bit difficult if you are out of shape. Wear proper footwear. Go all the way to the final lake - well worth it.

There are washrooms at each lake location.

Attempted it today, July 11 - still lots of snow on the trail - which is breaking apart, collapsing, icy in places, you find yourself pegging through to mid-thigh at times. Lots and lots of bugs. We were not having fun - turned around after 3km or so

Be prepared to ingest some bugs. I don't know what it's like year round, but the flying bugs made this a less than ideal hike -- they followed me the whole way. Because it starts at such a high elevation, most of the trail is snow even in July, which I was not prepared for. I also don't recommend going off to the left to the shorter route near the top. I couldn't figure out how to climb what seemed like the shear rock wall just short of the summit. The view near the top was stunning though.

Hiked it early July yet there was still a lot of snow once we got above grouse. Had to pay very close attention to keep on trail and there were several sketchy parts due to the snow. Despite all that it was a nice hike worth the effort.

Heavily travelled (2 full parking lots and cars parked along the road) moderate hike. Visited 3 lakes. The bright light blue color of the water was spectacular with snow speckled mountain peaks in the background. Outhouses were located at each lake. Just below the 2nd lake was a water spout for drinking and filling water bottles. Also a trough for a dog. The trip was moderately steep uphill taking 1-2 hours to get to the 3rd lake. A great lunch spot. Downhill was faster. Everyone enjoyed the hike even though there were a lot of travellers.
