Came up from Texas, hiked this in late September, very wet. We did the trail straight to peak 2. Excellent hike, lots of stair climbing, both wood and placed rock. Up to the last bit towards peak 2 it's simple, but a heavy leg workout. The top bit of the trail just before peak 2 starts having some tighter squeezes and chains to help you up steep inclines, and then there's a switchback. We had to stop there because of the wet and some of our party didn't have shoes that could handle it. Disappointing, but we'll be back in a couple months to beat it!

Beautiful lake but to popular

It’s a work out for this hike as it’s a 2000 ft continuous rise, leading to spectacular views of Squamish town and Howe Sound, take snacks or lunch so you can relax and enjoy the views.

Rad, challenging hike. I'm athletic enough but work a desk job and don't get out as often as I like, so the first 1/4 of this one was a bit of a winder - once you settle in to a good pace, though, just take in the beautiful surroundings and drink enough water, the views along the way and at the top are worth it!

pretty rough but so worth it. Best climb yet.

The stairs at the start are quite challenging, but the view is well worth it

Other than being very busy this is a great trail!

Amazing hike, great view of the lake. Not busy at all!

Would rate as intermediate, not overly difficult, just some easy technical stuff at the beginning.

Beautiful hike with a rewarding destination at the top. I love the view from peak 2. Make sure to pack a snack to enjoy at the top. The chipmunks are friendly and will devour any food left behind. It gets a little chilly at the top so pack a light jacket.

Super easy trail with flat terrain and great for a quick trail run. Family friendly trail with a camp ground, playground, picnic tables and much more.

Overall, wonderful picturesque lake destination. Be aware that there are lots of boulders..... you require high ankle support hiking boots if you are camping and carrying a heavy backpack. A nice variety of terrain. Long stretch of boulders during the trek and also when arriving at the lake.... the boulders are very technical to get to the camp site. We saw lots of dogs on the trail. Oh, final thing, there is a newly painted and beautiful hut! A special shout out to the BCMC Team upgrading and working hard at making the trail enjoyable!

It was a rather hot day that we did this hike. It was well planned as the canopy & proximity to the lakes kept us nice & cool. It's more of a walk than a hike, but it was worth it.

Amazing!

An beautiful hike almost anyone can do, we did this one with a 5 and 3 yr old. There’s a great off shoot adventure trail for kids called Adventure Alley!

4WD HIGH CLEARANCE IS AN ABSOLUTE MUST! Amazing hike with a beautiful lake but do not try with 2WD

More of an easy trail, and most trafficked trail from sea to sky gondola. Views were pretty good but the amount of people on the trail might make the experience less enjoyable, try to go at a less busy time or try another trail!

Great stop on the way back from whistler if you’re looking for a rewarding view for a easy leg stretcher.

We did this hike on the way back from whistler. Didn’t take too long, great if you’re looking for sore calf’s or a natural stair master.. the views at the top on a nice day are super rewarding and worth the quick hike up!

Always a super fun trail to hike! Very steep at first, but don’t be discouraged by this, it gets better! The top is super fun as you kind of have to scramble a bit.

I rate this as difficult, because there was some exposed area and scrambling required . Total route from gondola was 5 miles . Beautiful, even though heavy smoke due to fires

It was nice easy to moderate hike.

I wish there was "Godlike" rating for this trail. "Hard" rating is kind of injustice to this trail. We went in on this trail thinking if we could do mason lake and serene lake this should be doable too but we were wrong. I took us around 3 hours to reach the summit even though its just 4.5 miles.

Such a gorgeous view! I am a beginner and was still able to manage. It was really tough and I took my time; took about 2 and a half hours. I recommend going early or on a week day.

Easy going hike. Opens up access to some nice scrambling above the lake. Also a great place for a summer swim.

Cheers

Amazing hike, do it every year, it is busy on weekends and I recommend visiting second peak as first peak is usually full

amazing views. top end of moderate but not too long. great experience sitting in top of what is basically a massive bolder.

Fun trail with some scrambling up granite ridges and in the forest over roots and logs! Didn’t see any views due to the fog but sill a great trail and fun adventure.
