Pretty warm day at the start (noon), but weather changed quickly and by 4pm it was snowing pretty good. Just a short jaunt out to the island and from the upper parking lot. Lake was solid, but lots of hard drifts and a good 1" crust on most parts of the lake.

Did this trail in July for my brother’s bachelor trip and it was really fun. We hiked to ribbon lake and back in a day, with a 2 km backtrack as we took a wrong turn at one of the bridges. All in all it was about 26 km for us. The trail is not technical (except for the chains, which are not for the faint of heart) but it is a very long hike if you plan on doing it all in a day. It took us about 9 or 10 hours to do the whole thing, but at the top, the views were well worth the trek. I would definitely recommend you have boots with good ankle support as much the of trail consists of larger rocks that are uncomfortable to walk on on the way back down.

epic hike long to do in one day. good variety of terrain.

I attempted to go to the point campground before finishing the loop. but heavy snow and made the route impassible.

I did this one in winter, if there is fresh snow I would definitely recommend snowshoes (you can rent them for 24 hours in Jasper, only 16$), it was an amazing hike, and you can take different tracks of the same distance so that you only do 2km on the same track (track nr.9) . Get a map of the routes (available in the hostels, rentals, infocentre - for free) and start with the 9c - this one merges with the 9, then you can make a circle around the lakes following the 9a and get back on the 9, following it this time all the way back (instead of going back on the 9c). If you count the walk to get there and the extra metres because of the loop, you have almost a 25 km hike!

Awesome trail, this is my second time hiking this, did it just today (January 2, 2020) and back in the summer of 2019. The trail is awesome, icy in some parts going down but nothing to extreme. The trail is well travelled, lots of tracks so the snow was nice and packed. The trail has snow on it but again, it’s packed so you don’t even notice it while walking. The townsite was all icy so we didn’t stay too long. The bridges along the way were still accessible and the river is still flowing it hasn’t iced over yet. Overall great hike would recommend in the summer and winter seasons

Really great conditions. This does seem to be more of a cross country ski trail (the trail was so smooth and beautifully packed down, I felt bad walking over it on my snowshoes!!) but we saw other snowshoers, so that’s why we kept going. We also stopped at the meadow because we didn’t have the right gear and we ran out of time. It was just under 9km for us!

Fantastically beautiful undulated trail today. Went for a run, but the ankle deep snow was not well packed, so it made for a lot of effort. Great for snowshoeing or hiking.

Excellent conditions for snowshoeing. The trail was well packed down with other snowshoers and skiiers. We only went to the meadows below the pass because any higher is avalanche territory and we aren’t adequately trained or equipped for that. We took about 75 minutes up and 90 down (stopping at the lakes to admire the view on a perfect blue bird day!)

One of my favourites! Easy to hike and lots to see. Small detour to the cemetery is well worth it. We took our 1 year old. Our friend rolled his ankle on the coke ash pile. Hilarious!

awesome. must go all the way to lake and take a swim. all part of the experience.

Beautiful hike today at Galatea. Amazing conditions. Going up to the second lake carries some very deep snow with it, but super fun.

The trail was covered with quite a bit of snow at times, snowshoes are highly recommended. Allow more time to complete the trail in winter time.

Takes a bit of trail finding, but if you follow the All Trails map (and footprints in winter) you can get some nice views looking back on Barrier Lake. For best views of the lake go past the summit cairn a couple hundred meters along the ridge top. It opens up nicely with a stunning view back over Mt. Baldy and Barrier Lake. For the more adventurous, you can follow the ridge east all along, and eventually drop back down to the road. Just over 10 km round trip. In the trees lots along the ridge so views are sometimes limited.

Gaiters, spikes but no snowshoes! We did the loop in the clockwise direction. Up until the 4.5 km mark, trail was lightly covered (5-10cm) on top of compact snow. Beyond this point the next 2.7 kms to the Point Campground we were breaking trail with the snow being knee deep most of the way - this is when the forgotten snowshoes would have been beneficial! Consequently our pace was rather slow, but the views and the sunshine were spectacular particularly when we hit the north shore. Beyond the Point Campground, the snow cover was half of what we experienced on the south shore. As well, somebody had dragged a sled in with their camping gear so the snow on the trail was slightly compacted or groomed which made for an easier return. The Great Divide trail section had also been well trafficked (perhaps on the weekend), so the snow was fairly compacted as well. Surrounding views particularly across to Sarrail Ridge were fabulous particularly with the slight misty clouds covering the neighbouring peaks. The temperatures were in the -3 to -5 C range so this was ideal especially when we were fording the knee deep snow. Also of note, there was quite a bit of deadfall on the south shore section of the trail. Although it seemed a long day with 5 hrs and change on the trail, it was a great day to be outdoors with nobody else on the trail and while enjoying the magnificent views and surroundings.

Great trail conditions on December 8. Very easy trail as there wasn’t much elevation for the first few kilometers. We were snowshoeing. Ok views and nothing spectacular. Certainly worth being out and about.

Avalanche territory. Don’t go unless you have proper gear. Amazing hike though. Beautiful.
