Great trail - but I would say it’s a difficult climb - due to distance and variation in terrain- nice glaciar cold lake at the top. Pretty busy on the weekend.

Very well maintained trail. Felt like a steady incline for most of the hike. Had very cloudy and rainy weather for most of the trip.

Very beautiful hike. Definitely worth checking out Cream Lake as well if you have the time and weather permits. We did it in July and there was still a lot of snow en route to Cream Lake.

Made it to landslide lake however couldn’t make it to iceberg lake due to the vertical gravel climb at the end, people before us tried to get up and slipped, one guy hurt his leg pretty bad, ouch! There is a lot of uphill along the trail and it reminds me of a harder version ripple rock (tree roots, loose rocks etc). We made a day trip out of it, took almost 11 hours. The views were not that great until the last hour or so as there is a lot of trees blocking anything. View at the top was amazing but I would say not worth 5 hours of grueling hiking. I would also go so far to rate this as difficult and not moderate due to the length and difficulty (canyon view and ripple rock are rated as moderate and are by far much easier). Glad I made it to the end, but won’t do this one again.

Great trail- very beautiful, mostly shaded, well maintained. so many waterfalls and massive trees, the trail is nothing short of amazing. the last 1km was definitely the most difficult. there were lots of bugs so bug spray/nets are recommended. unfortunately we weren't able to make it up to berg lake due to aggressive wasps nests. we heard multiple stories of people and dogs being stung and didnt think it was worth the risk. highly recommend this hike overall!

It’s a challenging trail with lots of elevation but worth it. The lake is beautiful.

This was my first hike ever. Since it's a hard hike, it took me longer than half of my group but the trail is well kept. The views are amazing (better than that)!!! We camped overnight and there are fantastic camp spots. Lake at top was warm. The creek at the beginning was icy! Nice on the way down to refresh yourself. There were A LOT of bugs and insects right from the get go, be prepared.

Great trail! Definitely not for kids, can be quite technical in a lot of parts but pretty well maintained trail. Single file as well. Recommended for sure!

Has anyone does this hike recently ? How are the conditions ?! ☺️

steep climb out of the valley. beautiful lake, mountains all around. platform camping at bedwell and baby bedwell lakes

big day hike up a deep valley, while you're there, hike a little further up the valley to iceberg lake

I did this a few years ago. Easy access, well maintained trail. Saw kids on the trail so it wasn’t to difficult. There are also camping spots along the way. Beautiful views and well worth it!

My wife and I only got about halfway in then turned back. Very still, not another person on trail. Got a little freaked out about bears. Forgot our bear spray that day. Ha ha.

Great hiking trail, clearly marked and not too busy. The campsites are well laid out tent pads (but they are about 30mins further walk than the All Trails route suggests. But- we went in early August and the bugs and insects were interminable- the worst we've had at any BC campsite and really hampered our enjoyment- we wouldn't visit this campsite against except in the winter months - we're covered in painful fly bites.

Landslide Lake and Iceberg Lake are gorgeous and make every minute of the hike worth it. Most people stop at Landslide Lake, but make sure you find the trail through the alder around the edge of the lake up to Iceberg Lake- turquoise waters, glaciers, ice caves, and towering mountains. Unreal hike!

The trail up is steep and pretty boring. But, once you hit the ridge, it's gorgeous and worth the climb! Lots of tent or hammock spots along the ridge.

I wouldn't consider this a difficult trail.
Camping platforms by the lake. Fairly easy to do the return trip in half a day. Great views all along the trail
Easily drove right to the trailhead with my cherokee. All the way to jim mitchel lake too. Cold but neat lake with a dam.

It was snowy and a cold over night camp but overall incredible experience! The trail is hard to see as it is under snow after the 9 KM camping spot, but a locked food storage was a treat!
Bring warm gear of you plan on camping!

The Landslide lake and Mt. Colonel Foster is amazing!!!
