Very difficult in the snow. Snowshoes required. Very steep at end. Didn’t make it to iceberg lake as we started too late but we stopped at the meadows just before and it was still beautiful. Stopped for lunch part way up thrn 26 mins at top. Didn’t record descent to preserve battery.

Walked only halfway up as it was very snowy in May. Only wore trail shoes and needed snow shoes to go further.

Did this one in the summer and hiked with all our camp gear to stay the night. First timer, we got up in an hour and 50 mins. Beautiful hike, challenging with all our camp gear but nothing too hectic. Could easily take breaks if you wanted. Nice sections of different terrain, I really enjoyed this one. And the last part of his scaling boulder rocks was a nice finish that made the reward even better. We booked the camp spots up there and had the breath taking view of the lake to wake up to and watch sunrise! I managed to take a time-lapse of the whole sunrise! Check out @chelseajanette on Instagram for it. Once up the top definitely do the extra hike to the glacier! Doesn’t look that cool from far away but right up close was so good! Definitely recommend! Bring a jacket for the top, and gloves for overnight stays.

Not open to public until April 1

Très belle randonnée avec 2 possibilités de "couper" l'itineraire. De notre côté nous avons pris le chemin retour à la deuxième possibilités car nous marchions depuis plus de 2h30 (et que le retour sur un autre sentier prendrait environs 1h30) et pour le 3eme "niveau" il fallait ajouter presque 3h. Des le début du sentier on prend conscience que la vue serait superbe mais que le dénivelé allez être important (très forte descente au départ). La randonnée est à la hauteur de nos espérance : magnifique et nature. A Faire absolument si vous passez par là !

Viewpoint 5* Endpoint 1* Trail in the winter 2* Deep snow, snowshoes a must for the second half. Overall an enjoyable time with great views, but for around half of the hike we had to track ourselves on GPS to make sure we were on the route as it is completely unmarked and impossible to see a used trail in the snow. Not the biggest problem, but eats battery and takes away from the enjoyment when your following your phone and backtracking to find the way. Viewpoint 600m before the end is spectacular. This should be the end. Do not continue downhill as there is nothing to see - at least in the winter. It's a completely wooded area with literally no view. Enjoy the viewpoint before. Probably best to leave until the snow melts, otherwise make sure your comfortable finding and tracking the trail. :) Overall took 4.5hrs up (with 20ish mins for lunch) and 1.25 hrs down. She's a steep one!

I'll be blunt: This hike is a slog to get up to the hut especially during winter hours (with limited light). We hiked up the singing pass trail in considerable avalanche conditions, however, the trail is well marked and follows the treeline so avalanche risk is low. The last 3km up to the hut is straight up a mountainside so probably the hardest part after hiking 9-10km prior. The hut is absolutely gorgeous!! They have nice washrooms, a fully stocked kitchen with pots, pans, mugs, dinner plates. Downstairs in the hut are the sleeping quarters and they are segmented by rooms with 4 bunks per room. 2 double person bunks and 2 single person bunks. There are custodians who take shifts to work the hut to make sure there is always plenty of drinking water and the propane is fired up for heat in the hut. The hut even has it's own drying room for all your ski and equipment! The hut is beautiful and the views are among some of the top I've ever seen! After a long hike in, it's still among one of the top hikes we've done!! definitely recommend it !!

First timer. Got it done with spikes but crampons might have been worth the hassle for the last 15min/500” of the climb. Started 2:15pm, lake by 4:00 without breaks, Lake was frozen, couldn’t swim, after 15 started slower decent under headlamp, car by 6:15pm. Wore spikes entire route. Would repeat hike. Also there appears to be two trailheads for that link up for this hike. Stick with the official parking area/wedge trail and avoid the water tower one.

I did this hike today Dec 7th. You could see the snow from the beginning, at the trail head. Half-way to the lake the trail became very icy and crampons are the must. When we got to the elevation of 1300m snow started to get deep and at 1500m it was deeper than 3 feet. So, it was not possible to continue without snowshoes and we had to turn back. Overall the trail is well marked and maintained. We didn’t see any other hiker on the trail.

Climbed up to the lake and also climbed Rethel Mountain. The trail was EXTREMELY icy. Do not attempt the hike to the lake this time of year without Micro-spikes and crampons. If you intend to climb Rethel you will need a good understanding of mountaineering technics. Ropes and anchors are a requirement for Rethel. The trip was excellent other then the icy decent. Beautiful views and a great workout.

Party of 3! Great trail, super well mark. Hiked Nov. 30. Crampons are a must, be careful with black ice (a lot of spots). A lot of snow but pretty nice to walk on it. Beautiful view! Only saw one other hiker on the trail, that was great!

We liked the trail, but the part between the Bangee bridge and suspension bridge is a graved road with cars passing by and raising dust.

Started the hike at 11:15 am on Sunday nov 24th. Ice and snow started after 2.5k in. Crampons needed (micro spikes are not enough). Last stretch is full of snow. Bring gloves and warm clothes as winter is settled at Wedgemount lake!! Quick 20 minutes break in the hut. First time doing this hike in winter and sooo worth it. Back at the car at 4:15 pm.
