nice little walk hike for a waterfall

Super quick for an incredible view :)!

I really enjoy this trail, its wide and well maintained. 6 km is a good distance around the lake. Mostly flat with one hilly area makes it an easy walk.

Great hike for beginners and those getting back into hiking. For those that like trail running I strongly recommend it. 1.5 hours with a quick stop to enjoy the views of LMD is fun and enjoyable.

Too many dogs running around. There is no sign indicating it's an off leash, but only 2 dogs were on leash. Signage is needed.
The numerous dogs running around out of control made it unpleasant.
The trail has lots of roots so keep your eyes open.
If you are looking for a peaceful hike, this is not it.
The suspension bridge is fun.

great little trail. very user friendly

Good and easy for Two nice hours after work :)

Seriously icey on 5th December. Crampons a must. Great view from the top.

access road was slippery. one car got stuck.i put snowshoes on at the top of forested part of the hike. we were rewarded by an awesome view of surrounding mountains.

Cute switch backs and great view of Hope ! The trails are starting to ice up a tad but easily done in regular shoes/boots yet.

Today December 7, we started from parking lot at 9 am. We reached Lindeman in 45 minuted. The trail was moderately sloped and well maintained. But from Lindeman to Greendrop Trail was pretty challenging, not because it was steep, but because almost two third of the trail you have to walk is on uneven rocks. You have balance on rocks and find your way between red dots and you cant go fast. But it was worth going there. We reached Greendrop at 12:40, ate lunch and took 20 minuets break. It was so cold that my water bottle got frozen in few minutes. We returned to our car at 4:10 pm and it was already getting dark. It was Friday, we didn’t see any other hiker between Lindeman and Greendrop. Total two way distance is 12 km.

The hike was beautiful, it is moderately trafficked because it is in the fall. The few people we met on the trail were very friendly. It took 4 hours to do the loop, water and a light snack are suggested.

Completed the trail just yesterday. During winter the road is closed so you have to hike 2km to the tail ahead along the road, which isn’t all that enjoyable. The trail is also pretty easy and unexciting, but it’s all worth it once you get to the falls. They were absolutely gorgeous and partially frozen. Bring micro spikes to help get close to the falls and feel the spray and power of the water. Also, because it was winter we were the only people there which really added to the experience and beauty of the area.

It was a good day for the hike. The hike starts off easy before heading over a few ice covered rocks and an ice covered little bridge. Both were very slippery but not that big of a deal. With stops and all we took our time and reached the top in about 1.5 hours. The climb up was steep in some sections but I never felt like I was in risk of losing my footing. The trail is quite slender but again, traction is good. Once you get to the viewpoint you can get some amazing photos and the caves are a short walk from there. The caves are more like large stacked rocks and don't go very far. There were no bears in them when we went and we explored around to find some of the bigger ones. We squeezed in and out of tiny holes in the earth to explore as much as we could. All in all, we probably went inside about 5-7 caves while we were there. Trip down was a quick 40 minutes walk. A good starter hike for sure.

Parties à 10h un jour ensoleillé de semaine. 2h30 pour monter jusqu’au camp ground de Garibaldi lake malgré quelques arrêts pour regarder le paysage. De la neige à partir de 45mn de marche. De bonnes chaussures de randonnée avec des “microspikes” ont suffit. Pause au bord du lac dans le petit refuge (beaucoup de neige au sommet et à 12h30 la plupart des abords du lac étaient ombragés à cause de l’orientation). Nous sommes reparties environ 45mn plus tard, en 2h nous étions au parking. Super journée, super randonnée. Sentiers très bien entretenus et accessibles malgré la neige (bien se couvrir et avoir des semelles adaptées).

Beautiful trail that was quite well maintained. Used micro spikes for the most part and glad we brought our snowshoes to complete the final 500-700m as there was a good foot of snow.

Sunny, crisp fall day with a little ice on the lakes. Easy walk; lots of

Easy hike in. Weather beautiful. The trail from logging road in was dry well marked. Lake starting to freeze up around the lake edges.

Just a warning for those who think this is a moderate trail, it’s NOT if you are older. I’m 65 and in reasonably good shape. Did not expect the rock scrambles, and narrow paths strewn with rocks and roots. I had walking sticks and could not have done some of the scrambles without them. Had to pay close attention most of the time to the trail and not the view. The views were good, but not fabulous.

One of my favourite hikes in Vancouver. Still accessible as of the 2nd December.

First 1.7km is a slog with very steep sections (about 550m elevation). This also makes for a tricky, technical descent which probably deserves its hard rating.

Second half is a nice amble with slight incline. Views are out of this world.

A nice little easy and fast trail to walk or run. Nice lookout of points and lots of benches throughout the trail to stop take a break and enjoy the view.

Nice little jaunt up. Drove up almost to the tracks in my outback but the road got a bit too bumpy for my low vehicle. Took the road up and the trail down. No visibility as the clouds were moving in. But nice area. Next time I’ll park at the very bottom and make for a longer run.

Quite enjoyed this one. Easy ... great views.

A little harder than expected with little kids. There are a few sections that required a family effort to get our 4-year old through but the kids loved it. Lots of ducks and cormorants hanging around the marsh in late November. Will return to do the section up to the lookout.

Great quick hike but way too busy.

This was an awesome short trail run. The uphill climb was pretty vertical, but the downhill was a decent grade and fairly soft underfoot. Overall the trail was easy to follow. Anytime I needed a hint on direction there was always an orange trail marker in sight. The only confusing spots were when the trail was changed and the detours didn’t seem complete (orange tags on the old trail, and lack of some logs blocking the old path), but a little map checking and it was easy to figure out.

Easy trail to access, Nice views of area, fairly dry trail and not too muddy

Beautiful views. The trail has a decently steep initial incline, a fair amount of bare rock, and is not very well marked but easy to follow if you’re paying attention. Took about 45 minutes to the top.
