Great trail but way too busy now for locals.

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

The route shown is not the best. Visit the Adventure Centre or D.O.S. website for better information.

Nice short stop along the Sea to Sky Hwy to Whistler (Hwy 99) just before Squamish. Shannon Falls is an easy walk to an impressive waterfall. There are a couple of additional harder hikes if you have the time. Worth it to stretch your legs. More info can be found at http://www.env.gov.bc.ca/bcparks/explore/parkpgs/shannon/

Less than 3% of BC's Coastline is estuarine and this is a gem in Squamish. It is also a Wildlife Management Area and while dogs are currently permitted they are required to be on a leash. It is also an Important Bird Area and many birds nest in the area and migrating waterfowl seek shelter here in winter. Black bears, coyotes, and bobcats spend time here foraging and hunting. Wildlife and pets do not mix so for your safety and that of your pets, please keep them leashed. Enjoy the wildlife and learn more about this amazing area.

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!

This trail is short (20mins) around the small lake. Very pretty and green. It should be rated easy on this app. Great for children and walking small dogs. If you are looking for something longer, try Four Lakes Trail off of Alice Lake.

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

super hard

Great easy trail for anyone

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

Dont click directions on app as it led me to Mamquam Road (wrong road and is paved road) on google map. We had to turn around and go to Mamquam River Forest Service Road which is the right road and unpaved. It is just at bottom of the hill past the Chief but before the casino. We made wrong turn again on the Forest road left at 16 km as signage for 16 km was on the ground as we found out on way back. You need to keep right and go up hill to 16.3 km where you see the candy cane shaped vent at 16.3 km then turn left which leads to trail head, which is another 3.7 km away. I think 20 km total on forest road and it takes a while. Even if you make a left on 16 km we found out later it would of lead you to the trail head. We removed a fallen tree with the jeep. With time constraints we turned back maybe 45 mins away from the lake at the boulder fields. We went Oct 19 durning a very rainy day and many parts of the trail had water on it. It was fun crossing the creeks and streams. There is a log crossing we opted to go underneath and cross the stream instead. It started to snow slushy at the boulder fields making it very slippery we turned back as we did not want to be hiking back at dark as sunset was 6:15. Even though we didn't make it, it was a fun day outside. The trail is not that hard except the boulder fields a bit sketchy with slushy snow.

This hike is not the most exciting. It's boring for the most part but well worth it. We stayed over night in the cabin which was nice and cozy. The lake is beautiful.

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

Be aware that you have to go on a 18km logging road to get to the base of the hike. 4x4 vehicle recommended! Steady climb to the top with some flat sections for you to catch a break. The last 1.5km to the lake gets a bit steep but well worth it!

Easy walk

awesome trail.

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.

Difficult for kids. 10 hours round trip with my 6 years old.

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.

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.
