Gentle inclines and wide track makes this an enjoyable hike. Take time to explore around the lakes!

Good trail and hike. The drive to Pemberton involves a bunch of curvy roads with not much traffic. I reached the parking lot at around 1:15 pm and it was full . The shoulder parking and the overflow parking were also full. Luckily, I got a spot as someone had just finished.

The first lake is right down the the trailhead and offers great views and is busy . The hike then starts going uphill and keeps climbing from there. The first part of the uphill is easy till one reaches the steps and rocks . It gets steep here and slippery too. A downhill hiker slipped and hurt herself badly - so be careful out there. Hiking Poles are a must for the downhill part. After climbing up steadily and then thru switchbacks , the hike kind of levels out before reaching the second lake. The lake is beautiful but go along a bit further for good colors and less crowd.

The third lake is easier to reach about 15 mins from the second. There is a lovely waterfalls on the way to the third. The third is full of boulders strewn over. The third lake is gorgeous and it gets chilly out there , so a jacket is a good idea.

The campsites are located on the other end of the lake near the glacier fed waterfalls. Absolutely lovely spot for the camps.

A hike well worth the effort.

I couldn't make it to the peak as it was very slippery.
The views from the first and second peak are amazing. There's no reason to risk going to the peak as there's still a lot of snow.
Crampons can be very useful.
Also, as mentioned before, a lot of bugs all around. It can be very annoying.

Excellent trail. A bit difficult if you are out of shape. Wear proper footwear. Go all the way to the final lake - well worth it.

There are washrooms at each lake location.

Was tying for Dolomite Pass and Cirque peak but a thunder storm rolled in, so only made it to Helen Lake. Small section of Avalanche debris on the way up, otherwise trail is in great condition

Was a very nice hike. Walked around the lake to the mountain face and I climbed up there. Great scenery but very difficult. The larger rocks are fun and easy to climb on but the smaller ones slide and it is very hard to stay on. Overall, great hike.
Ensure you have strong big spray as the mosquitoes and horse flies are REALLY bad.

Attempted it today, July 11 - still lots of snow on the trail - which is breaking apart, collapsing, icy in places, you find yourself pegging through to mid-thigh at times. Lots and lots of bugs. We were not having fun - turned around after 3km or so

Be prepared to ingest some bugs. I don't know what it's like year round, but the flying bugs made this a less than ideal hike -- they followed me the whole way. Because it starts at such a high elevation, most of the trail is snow even in July, which I was not prepared for. I also don't recommend going off to the left to the shorter route near the top. I couldn't figure out how to climb what seemed like the shear rock wall just short of the summit. The view near the top was stunning though.
