Beautiful hike with breathtaking views!! Definitely worth it to go the extra kilometres to the Hanging Lake viewpoint. Don’t forget to bring tons of insect repellent!

Great trail run and still quite a bit of snow but not on the trail. Outstanding views at the top!

Trailhead well marked. 10 mi creek trail to skywalk north to reach Iceberg Lake. Mosquitoes in July. Lots of standing water in woods. Uphill climb almost the whole way and rocky terrain the last half mile or so. Lake makes it worth it. Good for dogs and bridges make traversing soft spots easy.

5 miles from village. Easy access and parking. Bathrooms at bottom and top. Total time is 5 hours, including pictures. Straight up and straight down; not much undulating. Bugs!!! Great views at top.

Amazing hike! Recommend camping overnight down by the lake to enjoy the sunset. Extremely steep!

Beautiful lake! Hike up is a bit boring but when it opens up it’s quite pretty! This is not a difficult hike, I’d say moderate. 2 hours up, 1 down. Whoever brought their dog and then had the audacity to not clean up after it, wth is wrong with you. No dogs allowed means no dogs allowed! I left mine home for this one too. I wish people were more respectful.

Beautiful, well maintained hike! Follow along on AllTrails as it’s confusing at times. Took us 4 hours to complete (2.5 hours up and 1.5 down) so we added Rainbow Lake to extend our day. It’s mostly through the forest which is a bit boring but once it opens up it’s really pretty and the lake is gorgeous. Returning end of August for a quick dip, hopefully some of the snow on the lake will have melted by then.

A) A fantastic day hike! Beautiful! Plan to hang out at the lake and enjoy the scenery, relax, contemplate... I was mesmerized by God's creation.
B) After hanging out for a while, it's worth going the extra 2 miles or so to see the next lake. I didn't walk down to the lake, but the view from the top of the trail was breathtaking.
C) Bring TONS of mosquito repellent!!! They are ferocious on the way up. I encountered very few at the lake, thank God.

A hidden gem with everything you want in a hike. Lush forest, creeks and waterfalls, scenic mountain views, and a glacier lake (the prize at the top). It's a challenge but the reward is worth it.

Grueling hike! The entire hike is a scramble up the mountain. Pretty relentless. The final ascent up the boulders is intense. Bring lots of water! Most of the hike is spent in the trees. About 2.5-3hours in you are rewarded with a wonderful view of the water cascading down the mountain from the lake - take a break and take in the waterfall. Another 45 minutes in the trees and finally out for magnificent views! 30 more minutes up the boulder and finally... The lake itself! It is gorgeous!

A) Directions to parking leads to a residential area. I suggest finding a better way to get to the trail. We had to walk about 10-15 minutes through homes.
B) Once on the trail, it's beautiful and peaceful. However, the whole area is probably better for mountain biking.

Excellent hike. Nice and steep but not too long so bearable. Definitely recommend doing it as an overnighter...set your tent and then head up to the glacier :)

Views are worth it! 70-80% upwards incline through dense amazing forest with the sound of waterfall throughout, occasional view points of mountains and forest from start to finish. finishing with the Lake at the top with more mountain views defiantly recommend! Took me 3hours up and 1:30hrs on the way down.

Easy trail to a beautiful lake. Can either take the nature trail or the cross country ski trails that are gravel to Lost Lake. Once there, there were plenty of activities to do and docks to swim out to in the summer months.

extremely beautiful hike, perfect trail , total mileage was 10.3 miles tiny bit of snow at top to lake
very easy to manage

Nice hike, steep, sleep with a tent on wood platform. Glacier, lake and mountain are amazing!
Must do!

Hike is clear. A few patches of snow at the top past the boulder field that you walk over for 30 seconds. Very minimal. Did the hike in trail runners with no issue. People were camping at the top. Marmots galore!!!

Hiked 23JUNE2018. Still walking on 2+’ of snow from the cable bridge to the lake, but a great hike.

great trail and new outhouse mid way up. snow for the last 1.5-2 k that gets relatively deep but manageable. follow the tracks people have made in the snow. lake is still mostly frozen but edges are thawing out. really funny whiskey jack at the top so bring him some seeds!

Still lots of snow on the trail, from the cable bridge to the lake, but still a great hike.

The road in has recently been filled in so the potholes are easier to navigate. The hike is accuratley rated as hard, but it's well worth it when you get to the top! Definitely achievable without snow shoes now, only a few ankle deep patches left.

We wanted to hike Half Note to High Note but unfortunately the trail was closed. Instead we took Pika and Matthew’s Traverse which is basically a graded mountain road to the top of Whistler Peak. There is construction going on and looks like the suspension bridge is conpleted and will be opening soon. The views at the peak is majestic. You can see all of Garibaldi, Black Tusk and the many lakes.

Nice quiet hike with minimal elevation gain. No spectacular views. Well marked. Though we did not mountain bike, it appeared to be nice for that.

Hiked to the top June 20th. Awesome views through the hike, especially at the peak! 18 foot snow walls on each side of the road about 1.5 miles up. Definitely a work out. Garmin showed almost 1,400 ft of elevation gain.

Hike is no joke but totally worth it. Bring mosquito spray! And shoes for snow.

It is a hard hike but once you get to the top it’s all worth it. The lake is still thawing, so I’ll try it in a month again so I can see that beautiful turquoise blue.
Amazing Mountain Views.

Vert Nice ! But very snowy for the last km

The first 4 Kms took us up a logging road which was on the boring side but once in the trail it was a great hike beautiful waterfalls all the way up the side of the trail once into the mountains. I believe this is called skywalk to iceberg Lake. Be sure footed as lots of snow packed and icy. Eyes open for wolves if overnight.
