Beautiful fall day! Crampons would’ve been nice in a few spots. Most places dry and snow free! What a beautiful panoramic view at the top. Will be doing this one again!

I had a lovely afternoon hike with my dog. It is out of the city but is close enough for a spur of the moment hike. Trails are well marked and easy for a casual walk. Muddy spots.

Great trail. Pretty easy if you hike a lot. It was incredibly windy one the hill walks and nice and calm in the forest sections. There was a few inches of snow along the whole trail. We got to the crest before you go down to the lakes. We stopped there because the wind had moved the snow to the point that you couldn't see a clear path so we'll be sure to be back when the snow is gone. 1h up. 45min down.

Good hike. Moderate effort for great views. Went oct 14. trail up to ridge is good but snow gets deep on the way down to the lakes. also poses avalanche danger in one spot. wouldn't recommend if more snow falls. Note that the map is out of date. Switch backs now make it easier.

Nice and easy little hike. Great views. Bring a picnic blanket and a lunch and you’ll have a great day. 1st lake is the best spot to throw down a blanket for lunch.

Easy hike with lovely views of the waterfalls right at the beginning. A moderate grade of a hike - easy for beginners. A lovely surprise of mountain views once you summit. Nobody else on the trail today!

Starts out fairly easy but certainly ramps up in difficulty as you turn to go up the hill. Definitely a little challenging.

Great hike, for all fitness levels. Did parts of this hike with 3 adults and 6 kids (ages 9-5). Path (exposed tree roots) a little slippery from a light rain, but didn’t make the hike difficult. We went to the lookout and then continued on but took one the paths back rather than the full loop. Geocache on hike. Would come back for sure!!

Great spot if you are looking for scenery without any work. I would call it more of a view point than a hiking trail, but it is a nice, simple, easily accessible walk that anyone can enjoy. Beautiful scenery.

Missed the turn off that heads up the hill so spent a lot of time bushwhacking. Great views but footing coming down was loose and slippery and very steep. Would not recommend it for children or those prone to vertigo. You need to be in pretty good physical shape. Fun if you’re comfortable with a challenge.

Great hike! Did it with 7 people and 1 dog and it took us 5 hrs. We did stop at the first and fourth lake for about 30 mins each though. Steady incline but has some down parts and flat parts to help break it up. Once you get to the first lake, stay right to get to the second, go right at the second then once you reach the third, stick to the left for a bit of an easier walk through the rocks around the lake. Then follow up behind the last lake to the fourth. 10/10 would do this one again! Lots of pika and we saw a mink as well! Not too many people, and lots of people were fishing in the lakes!

This is on my list of hikes to repeat

Loved this hike! Great views, decent climb and some nice lakes to enjoy lunch by. There are 4 lakes total so keep trekking to see them all. Our favourite was the last lake, it was nice and quiet. We brought our dog and she loved it. I wouldn't recommend bringing smaller dogs as there are a lot of parts that require stepping over lots of rocks and little paws may get stuck. We saw Pika lots of and a Mink :)

Great hike through mostly trees and a great creek. All signage good even if one for Praire Link was written with a marker.
I was hoping for a link to Prairie Mountain but didn't see one. Guess I'll have to go back to get Prairie ⛰ done.

They do not allow bikes. At all

Great hike for beginners. Gradual inclines until the top. Very steep, hiking poles are a must. Windy up at the top but the view is gorgeous.

Only people on the trail today! Not sure what trail others were speaking of with signs?!?! No signage we saw. After you cross the bridge keep left, after about 15 min keep looking right as the trail is sneakily tucked in (by a pile of rocks)! We were chatting too much we completely missed it and had to back track.

Great hike. Peaceful at the top. I didn’t find it difficult to find the start of the trail. It’s just pass the bridge about 2-3 mins on right hand side.

This is a great short hike that awards beautiful views at the end.

The hike up was OK. In the trees the whole time. Even with the holiday weekend the trail was not too busy. The views from the top are spectacular and worth the walk through the trees. A good shorter hike.

My nine year old, five year old, and I completed this route August 25, 2018. We were early enough for my children to sample some wild raspberries while at the same time, observe the beginnings of signs of fall. We had lunch at the viewpoint on the provided bench (there are two) We saw a deer off the path, on our return, close enough to get a good look through the trees. The path was dry and an easy walk for all. No signs of mosquitos or blackflies as mentioned by a previous commenter. We would definitely do this route again.

Took our dog out for an afternoon hike September long weekend, was lovely, trails were in great shape. A few bikers but all really nice. Great round, including running into cows!

Great i will do again with my friend. i saw lots of

love this trail easy for the kids and such nice views

Great Hike! Good for all ages, good signage.

Beautiful

I have been on the hike several times in the past with the last time being about 10 years ago, carrying my now 12 year old son on my back! It was pretty cool hiking this weekend with him as I’d always wanted to return with him as my hiking partner. It hasn’t changed a bit, moderately challenging, beautiful meadows and views and an amazing set of lakes at the end. It took us 4 hours with about a 1/2 hr rest at the lake itself. Catching a cutthroat was the icing on the cake. Great Day!
