Highly recommended hike, leg burning hike for sure, hard on the lungs going up, hard on the legs/knees going down, very steep all the way up, but worth the view at the top, please make sure you have enough water to last you a total of 4 hours, i find that going down was much easier for me so only took us 1.5 hours going down compare to going up took us 2.5...this is a difficult hike for a beginner like me, make sure you are with someone who will push you all the way...wear hiking shoes and use trekking poles, it’s a big help....and oh yeah bring snacks:) will give you energy going down...hope you will have fun just like me who almost gave up after 30 minutes, but nonetheless #IMADEIT so #WORTHIT, oh and go there early so it’s not busy, we went up around 9:30 am less busy but when we came down around 12:30 lots of people are going up....you have to wait for people to pass through as the trail is very steep....

Amazing view from the top! I didn't summit as I didn't have the gear for climbing up all that snow, but it was an amazing view of Pitt Lake and the surrounding mountains (even Mt Baker in Washington) from the emergency shelter and campsite.

This hike kicked my ass. I would absolutely not recommend it if you're afraid of heights as there is quite a bit of scrambling to the top. Also, bringing a dog is a really terrible idea in my opinion, though I did see a couple people with them. It's a miracle the dog made it down in one piece.

Enjoyed this hike until we got to Flatiron junction. Didn’t like the scramble up and down, pretty sketchy. Views are great but much better from Flatiron because of the lake. If we would have gone to Flatiron first, I wouldn’t have bothered going to up this peak but we went here first. Dogs cannot go up the actual Needle Peak unless they are small and fit in your backpack, like mine. If you are going up the peak just stay in the center and find your way. Be careful!

This trail is amazing! Took me 6 hours in that constant light rain! Wet leaves and branches were flooding my feet and shorts but it was worth it! I started with the Expert trail and took the sentier des chutes trail that goes all around from Gros mont to the parking!

I camped at the parking lot before going the day after! You can camp up there but for me 25km was something doable in a day and i had no point of view due to the mist all around the whole day (i have a curse in the past few days)! I have met the guy who dis all the trails!

He’s called Geatan and he was an amazing fellow! Tha k tou so much to have build that isolated circuit of trails in one the moat beautiful region of Quebec!

Worst hiking experience of life. Only a little bit of view at the summit. Trail entrance was not properly marked other than 'Z A P A '. Lots of hangry mosquitoes which didn't care about bug sprays. Couldn't take rest anywhere even with spraying bugspray. It's not good for hiking but snowshoe should be better.

Was good hike we took the dogs up and had lunch at the first lake got some fish all fingerlings then hiked the up to the rest of the lake all and all loved it was about 20km there and back with the bit of wandering around the lakes and definitely don’t skip the last lake you’ll beat yourself up about it later

Great workout. Not overly long to get to lindeman lake. Stunning view.

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 :)

Beautiful hike today. Weather was perfect. Made it up to the ridge but not before our group was split in 2 by a momma grizzly and her 3 cubs. Walked right in between our groups. Beautiful sight but made us realize we were definitely in bear country. Do not go up the valley closest to the mountain ( snow ) as her den is right at the top of the saddle. Papa grizzly was just on the other side. We had to yell to one group to stop and turn around as it would have been a sure disaster if they would’ve continued on up. Hike up to the highest point instead please.

Please don’t miss this hike. Get there early, be ready for a strenuous first half of the hike. Incredible beauty will be your payoff! Take the time to hike through the campground and up to the second waterfall. It’s heaven!! Pack water and lots of bug spray. Enjoy!

Perfect for taking your dog on a short walk or a casual hike with friends

Not great for walking a dog because of the gravel but good for walking around Kingston

Excellent views ... follow the hiking trail signs, NOT the fire road ... bring water shoes & bug spray (I’ve never seen bugs like this in AB) ... views are incredible & worth it at the top!

It's a long hike basically straight up. You can just ATV/Dirt bike to the top if you so wish. Beautiful views and scenery. Some of the wreckage, like the motor is still under snow, best to do this hike in August of you want to see it

Did this May 27, it's an amazing hike. It's straight up, lots of scree. Worth the views at the top. Take some paper and pen to leave a message at the one peak. you can scramble down and over to the actual peak, we didn't but maybe next time.

Well maintained trail with good shade for a hot sunny day. Don’t forget the bug spray. Good workout!

First 8 or so km are a bit of a slog through a dense, mosquito filled (and I mean filled! Drench yourself in bug spray) forest. Once that’s done it opens up into meadows and the views are great. Healy Pass itself is a pretty easy incline through the meadows. Flowers probably aren’t out in full force yet but were still beautiful.

Beautiful hike. Some steep sections. Some later sections through loose boulders. A nice mix of open and covered areas.

Easy and relaxing hike. I got to the trailhead around 8:30 AM on a Saturday. I only passed two other couples on the way up and had the lake to myself for a while. On the way back I passed lots of hikers on their way to the lake and the parking lot was full when I got back to my car. I would recommend getting an early start to beat the crowds. Also, there were quite a few muddy spots along the trail that you have to deal with, but other than that the trail is in good shape.

Near on impossible to find the trail at the start of the ascent (stick to the middle left) and once you do it only makes things a little easier. This bad boy is steep, all the way to the top. Worth it once you get there though!

Lovely trail, we thoroughly enjoyed it!

Fabulous hike! Good incline for the first couple of kilometres but nothing too strenuous.

Incredible hike. Would recommend counterclockwise from the base as there's a steady incline and a few switchbacks on the way up (we chose to get that out of the way during the first part of the hike) then a steep hill and then you're at the glorious lookout which is totally worth the hard trek up. Steep rock down the other side of Jewell pass then smooth sailing from there. Nice waterfall to take in on the way down too. Took our golden retriever and she did really well (a few stops for water). All in all took us about 4 hours with the water stops and about 20 mins for lunch at the summit.

Great trail. Easy to miss the small parking area suitable for only a couple cars. Short hike but the landscape and views are great!!

Some steep parts, some parts of the trail are poorly marked. Bugs were horrible.
Beautiful trail though. So many areas with amazing scenery. Wonderful views of the bog and lakes. Lots of variety of terrain, but easy to get though.

Busy therefore not ideal for me. Pretty views but not very interesting to hike. All flat. All hill. All rocks. Then repeat in reverse order.

This is an awesome hike. Lots to see, a challenge to get though the gorge but fun. Your going to get wet so bring dry shoes!

eine super Tour mit immer wieder tollen Ausblicken

Hiked this trail with my dogs on-leash July 13th. The trail is great for dogs because there is opportunities to stop and allow them to drink.
We hiked all the way to the lake, it was beautiful and hot. Due to the fire there is no foliage to shade from the sun, so keep that in mind. Additionally, the trail can get dusty from the wind because of the lack of foliage.
Classic trail, busy and well maintained.
