We hiked in on snowshoes on January 11-12 2020. It's about 12km to the hot springs, 11km to the parking lot above and the road is impassable by vehicle in the winter - you're either snowshoeing or snowmobiling in. It is nearly entirely uphill on the way in, and from the parking lot to the hot springs has done steep downhill sections. If you're going to hike in, camping is possible but be prepared to dig out a spot for your tent because the snow is roughly 3 feet deep. We camped near the snowmobile lot as it was already packed down but the lot was busy all night with people coming and going as late/early as 5am on a Sunday morning. You can also dig out a spot below near the hot springs themselves (although posted signs say not to camp there) but you need to carry your gear down a very very steep incline. Dragging a sled with a bit of firewood and a winter tent, the hike in took 5 hours. The hike out was about 3.5 (we stopped to sled down some hills).

Such a nice trail! Wide and clear most of the way

Brought my snowshoes back this time around to complete to the summit. Lots of deep snow once off the FSR.

Wow! Amazing hike! Did it back in November, 20th or so, and that was a bad idea... Forecast called for rain but as we got up to the ridge it turned into snow. The snow kept coming and coming but we decided it'd be better to just get to the top rather than turn around. Made it to the top, the snow had turned into a blizzard with 80km/h winds and luckily there was the emergency shelter in which we spent the night. Wind howled throughout the night leading to an hard sleep, luckily we weren't in out tent though. Woke up in the morning and it was absolutely stunning. The sun was rising casting everything in a golden light and the cloud had fallen into the valley creating an inversion. The moment we stepped outside, we slipped. The wind had turned the snow into ice, covering the entire mountain. We enjoyed the sunrise, assessing our options since we didn't have crampons or microspikes... After talking to S&R, we chose to take our chances and go for it. It was slow moving heel digging the whole ridge. At the part before the hut where we had to almost climb down a cliff, covered in ice as well. Luckily we had some rope and sent our bags down ahead of us. We took our time. Slowly, makeshift rappelling each other down the rocks with the imminent danger of the cliff off to the side. I had to use my Leatherman as an ice axe at one point which worked surprisingly well. One slip and we would've been dead. Luckily, we made it off that part in one piece, taking around 3 hours for a section of maybe a couple hundred metres. The rest of the hike was chill, continued boot digging along the ridge. We made it back to the parking lot at 9pm, pitch black. Would 100% do the hike again but in the summer... Or with proper ice gear...

beautiful falls! very easy walk. took us 30mins with the stopping to take photos.

January 3rd, 2020 10:30am - Great trail year round, usually in and out within an hour if you don't make any stops. Couple of logs down and puddles across the pathway so should use proper footwear. Water is high and moving fast this time of year.

Great trail! Definitely requires some fitness. It took us approx 4 hours moving at a fast pace, while stopping at vistas and some of nature's other gifts and 20 minutes for lunch when we got about 75% around hiking clockwise at a picnic table once getting to the lake. There was zero snow. Conditions were as expected with some mud and slippery roots but nothing terribly difficult. Our footwear was Blundstones. Someone recently did some trimming with machete or Bush saw to maintain trail, THANK YOU:) Recommend hiking clockwise to get a good burn on at the start. The suspension bridge is a nice feature once at the lake.

Super busy trail today, hundreds of people

lovely little walk around the lake. easy with well marked trails. i liked the no dogs allowed aspect... went a few weeks ago on a cloudy day. was quiet and took less than 20 mins to loop around.

Good trail- heavily trafficked and packed snow. Some icy parts and traction devices are helpful. Nice view! Easy 1.5km walk.

Good hike, couldn’t make it to the Top due to slippery sections at about 900m elevation/4km up

Made it very close to the summit today but turned back due to daylight running out and very deep, wet snow. Didn’t think I’d need snowshoes to complete it but they would’ve made all the difference. No tracks, snow covered orange signage, and trees were sagging over with heavy snow so route finding was challenging. Definitely underestimated the snow conditions up there today.

Trail was pretty good today. Just a bit of mud in a few spots but overall pretty dry. Snow starts at the lake but doesn't cover the trail until closer to the summit. Snowy at the summit but the trail packed and easy to follow. No snowshoes required. Beautiful view of Mount Cheam from the top! Round trip from the trailhead took about 3h15m going at a fairly quick, steady pace.
