Beautiful hike, well worth staying the night and hiking even more.

Lovely! Easy enough for a 2 and 4 year old.

Really enjoyed this route. Would thoroughly recommend. While you are up there it’s worth dropping down on to a few of the other trails so that you don’t put in all the hard work for nothing.

Great Hike! Not an easy one. My dog and I took about an hour and half to get up. Would recommend for anyone looking for beautiful views and a bit of a challenge.

Trail is pretty easy to follow.

Did this walk just before dinner after arriving to the camp ground. We were treated to a quiet walk and a spectacular view at the lake with a light mist rolling and flowing over the water.

Did this hike on the weekend before the snow came down. It was a great hike for my son and I. Trail was a little muddy and slippery in spots from the recent rain. And provided a good challenge for us. The view at the top was amazing and worth the climb. Lunch along the water was great and we were joined by a cheeky chipmunk and the chirps of the Pikas.

Beautiful lake. Wish people would be considerate of others and the environment and pick up after themselves. I would stay here again.

Such an amazing hike. From tip to tail it is amazing!!!

This is a moderate hike-it’s not a walk-some technical sections, steep for footing-hiking staff or poles are a help. Dogs had a great hike too. Leave enough time to get to the top for the views. Even if you only get to the bridge the hike parallel to the river is rewarding.

We did this as part of a Loop : parked midway up Moraine lake road at the Paradise Valley parking lot (first we dropped off bicycles at Moraine Lake). We hiked paradise valley to Sentinel Pass, then over the pass and Larch valley to Moraine lake road. Then we biked back to the car. It was about 21km of hiking and 950m elevation but it was just gorgeous! Paradise Valley in particular was breathtaking. We had our dog with us and she made it, but the climb over the pass was very strenuous and I wouldn’t have taken her had I realized how much snow/rocks we’d have to climb over - it was ALMOST too much for those 4 little legs.

A beautiful hike with breathtaking views and waterfalls at every turn.

This is a great trail - it can be a little wet in spots depending on the time of year. There’s also a great patch of blueberries at the very back if you hit it at the right time (early summer).

A great hike! Definitely not an easy hike. Did with a friend as an overnight camp, so had our packs which added a little difficulty. Took us 3.25hrs up and 2.75hrs down. Was the 2nd week of September and the lake was clouded in and it snowed, temp was hovering around 0 degrees so layers were helpful s when you stopped it got cold quick.

Hike itself is a near constant uphill at most points and a steady pace ensures no burn out (i.e. don't rush it at the easy points as the steeper points will take more out of you.) Take your time on the last 500m or so as it is an open, steep climb along large rocks and slippery gravel.

Nice easy hike with lots of info graphics about the unique ecosystem of pink lake!

Very nice view at the top!! Not that hard but long!!

Parcours facile, beau lac au bout, mais rien d’extraordinaire!!

Good for a rest day hike. You may even see a Moose if you go early enough.

Great hike, not really that easy. Loved the lake itself with crystal clear blue water and jumping rainbow trout. Grizzlies in the area, one was seen the day prior to our arrival.

Amazing! Day hike

awesome alpine terrains, numerous day hikes using Elfin Lakes as a base.

a coastal classic. Challenging hike with some tough sections. Can be done in pieces or as a backpacking trip. best as a one or even two night trip.

Done with my 3- years old and other child . Is take almost 6 hours to complete !!! Kids have fun.
It was nice experience!!!

We did this trail yesterday. Its an easy walk on what is largely a gravel road that runs from the falcon trail resort to high lake. An enjoyable walk that does have you in full sun for most of the hike.

You need to park on the gravel road, so stop wherever you see a trail head. I started at p15. Nice lake with camping spot at far end.

This is a steady climb all the way up with waterfalls on route. Most of the walk is through burnt forest (2017) but still spectacular and bears are easy to see. Once you arrive at the lake there is a 4 km walk around, if wanted. We were the first up today but passed 20 people approximately on the way down, but it is September. Could be busier in July/August. Take water ! Highly recommend.

Nice short, flat trail that begins at the ski lodge and runs right along the lake. Take the bear warning signs seriously as we did see a black bear just off the trail.

epic scenery great views loved all the water and leaves changing a bit of snow but managable
