Nice view at end of it. Walk is pretty boring by bc standards.

Love this hike!! Not too crowded and beautiful scenery. :)

nice woodsy hike, well marked, beautiful lakes

Very good signage, easy to stay on the correct trail. Easy-moderate hike, good for dogs, did this hike in the rain due to tree coverage and less incline (less mud, less slipping) and was very enjoyable. Good rainy day hike!

Challenging trail Rocks a bit slippery it rained most of the time .

super hard

Magnificent view... a bit steep with some chains closer to the top to help with the hike over the stones

Nice hike in an enjoyable setting. Busy on an October Sunday. Nice view from the river.

Stairs! Stairs! and more stairs!!! Do the loop counterclockwise - so start your ascent to the third peak then second then first. Beautiful sunset views, but need lamps for descent.

Nice and quiet trail. Mainly in shaded wood areas. A couple of views and lake at end. Hidden gem.

Today, Sept. 2, 2017, portions of this trail closed due to cougar activity on the trail. See photo.

Very rugged trail. Need to do a little rock climbing. Took us 4 hours to complete. It'd little steep do decided to take gondola down. Amazing views of Howe sound. And upper waterfall.

The trail is now called Sea to sky summit trail.

It was a fine hike, but lots of better trails close by that are more scenic and enjoyable.

Great views and takes a bit of time to do. From the moment you start you enter the forest and feel like you are far from civilization. Minor spots of incline and declines in terrain, but nothing too difficult for people who aren't terribly active!

Easy trail to follow! Great just for any distance you'd like to hike. Beautiful and lush landscape.

Nice and easy walk through the wilderness with some nice views of the river

Easy to slightly moderate trail (there are a few steep areas and flights of stairs). We did the smallest loop around the lake (4ish kms) with a 12-year old who had no issues. Some pretty views of the lake, but mostly forested throughout. Very easily accessible, there is parking right off the highway. Trail was lightly trafficked but there were a lot of people hanging around the lake and swimming - would recommend getting out early to get a parking spot. You can also add to the main loop around the lake and make this a much longer hike as there are various connecting side trails.

Easy to follow trail. View from the top was well worth the work!

Great views at the top, but you *will sweat on the way up! luckily, it's shaded with tree coverage on the way up, for those hot days!

Awesome hike.

I would rate the Brohm Lake trails from moderate to easy.
I did the Brohm Lake trails and got the connector trail to reach the Tantalus View Trail.
There are 3 or 4 short steep sections that will require some effort, but totally doable.
A wold say this trails is good to go for people with 13 years old and up. (I don't have kids yet, but I feel younger kids may complain on the steeper parts)
There's not much to see on the trails it self, but the view at the top of the Tantalus view trail is incredible!
For such a "short" hike, it's a very nice reward.
I recommend starting early, as it gets "crowded" on weekends and the trails get a little busy.

Hiked this May 20, 2017 and took about 5 hours to complete. There was still a bit of snow and mud for the last 0.5 km near the lake, but not enough to cause much of a delay. Be aware that the terrain is quite varied and can be very challenging, especially for the first section near the highway and the steep ravines in the forested sections.

When you first enter the logging road (about 2km in), you will turn right and hike uphill. There will be two major forks in the logging road, both of which you will veer right. Make sure you keep an eye out for the stone arrow markers leading you in the right direction and eventually back into the forest. Got lost briefly on the logging road, when we made a wrong turn and couldn't find the turnoff into the forest. I recommend double checking the GPS in this stretch to ensure that you're on the right track.

Overall, it was a great workout. The views of the Howe Sound, the Chief, and Squamish were amazing. The trail itself isn't well marked outside of the forested sections, so be aware that you may spend time trying to find where the next trail marker is. Also, there isn't really a defined trail throughout much of the forest. So often you will have to figure out the best way to get from point A to point B on your own. Also, there was bear scat along the trail so be prepared for a potential bear encounter.

This trail requires your attention especially if it's your first time hiking it. Everyone I ran into told me they got lost at least once, and that goes for me as well. Once you are in the forest and the traffic noise gets left behind, things are straightforward. Until that happens though I would encourage you to pay close attention to the markers as there is tons of rock climbing in this area and the very first part of this trail actually leads to a granite mass for that purpose. The chain wall you climb. The ropes you don't. Also, don't get discouraged by the logging road. You gonna spend a good while on it. Don't worry about the forking just pay attention to the orange markings/paint on the trees and stay on the road until you see an arrow on the ground made of stones and sticks, pointing you back into the forest. (You will veer left after a little while on the logging road, then continue up and over many streams/creeks/washouts then you will get to a point where you can go straight or turn right, you want to go right and continue the steady climb up for a good while longer and when you feel like you might have gotten lost just continue straight don't make any other turns and you will eventually get to the arrow on the ground.) Once back in the forest the trail is clearly marked. The lake was frozen and the surrounding area was covered in snow on May 7, 2017. This trail offers a very good workout. Not too difficult. I would recommend plenty of water, lunch and most importantly proper gear. Enjoy!! :)

Very nice secluded hike. Some good hills to get your heart going. Beautiful scenery. Will hike again for sure.

Easy hike right off the main road to Whistler. Really nice falls.

This is a very easy and accessible out and back trail to a majestic tall waterfall. Appropriate for strollers and canes alike. Parking is a bugger, but there is usually spots left in the overflow parking across the street.

I went off the trail to get a real taste of this heavily populated tourist stop waterfall and I'm glad I did! The steps are intense but the terrain was lovely. Parking was a bit ridiculous, but I was there early enough that I only had to deal with the cutthroat spot takers as I pulled out.

Nice water falls. Walked right to the falls. Quite a bit more powerful then expected

Nice hike and not very busy. The terrain is pretty varied so it's not a slog the whole way. Views of the Chief and Squamish going up with a great view at the end.
