Love this hike, definitely a climb but so worth the view. Got up early and did it at sunrise, there was still a layer of fog on the water and the ship-man it made for a beautiful hike. It’s a challenge but a goody. Parking is limited so I recommend getting there early!

Prepare to get wet! Fantastic hike along and in a creek. Beautiful scenery as you hike through a canyon, climb over a huge log jam and wade through the water to reach a cascading waterfall at the end of your hike. Highly recommend!

A very sustained incline! amazing for those who want to push themselves in the capacity of a day hike. Such a rewarding view from the peak. Made from trailhead to peak in exactly 2 hours 30 minutes with few breaks. Brunswick lake is worth cutting down to while you're in the area, cold water but not so much that you can't stay in and swim for a while.

It’s a bit of a scramble at the end to reach the peak but the incredible view is worth getting your hands dirty

Solid hike, the lakes are beautiful, but this seems to be a really buggy area and views were blocked partially by smoke, both of which contributed to 3 star rating.

Steady grade all the way, took the short route up from the lake and the long route back down, recommend this. Views from the ridge are spectacular!

One of the most beautiful destinations I've ever hiked to! Highly recommend - it wasn't TOO difficult with just a day pack. Bring lots of water, warm layers for the top and bug spray! Hiked this in late July in 32° weather.

great training hike.
From Chuckanut it is much more difficult than from the upper parking lot or from the parking lot at barrel springs road.
great view from the top.

This is the most rewarding hike I’ve done in BC yet! Truly stunning! It took me about three hours up and about the same down, however I was solo so probably a bit quicker than average. I wore my vibrams five fingers very comfortably until I was at the lake where there’s a lot of loose sharp rock, but nothing unmanageable. I had lots of bug spray and an Off clip on repellant so I wasn’t bothered by bugs at all until I got to the top and met the lazy deer flies, that being said they didn’t bother me too much. I would also recommend bringing a sweater because the glacier creates this nice cool breeze at the top. It is also uphill this whole time so be prepared for that, but it will totally be worth it!

Gorgeous valley hike with roaring creek, snow capped mountains and multiple waterfalls. My wife called it Shangri-La.

Amazing hike. We went beyond Wedgemount Lake and hiked up to the glacier itself. It is worth the extra 1.5kms, as there is a glacier pond and less attacking deer flies at the glacier. Amazing views.
For sure be ready for a full 1200m assent (a bit more to get to glacier), often on soft footings (sandy or loose gravel) and at other times stepping up and over rock face. Nevertheless, this was one of the spectacular hikes I have done.

Tough hike with an overnight pack! Pretty relentless in the current heat but worth it in the end for an epic camping spot, view of the lake and dip! It took us 4hr 15mins up with a quick stop for lunch. It would be faster with a day pack. It’s mostly all a climb apart from a short flat section in the middle, the last 30min climb over the boulders is tough when your energy is low after the rest of the hike but it’s great if you really want to challenge yourself. I drank 2.5 litres of fluids going up so take plenty of water, we refilled in the lake and boiled water for cooking and used aqua tabs for drinking water for the way down. It took us 3hrs 37min down with hardly any stopping. The down is hard on your legs & ankles, wear proper hiking boots! Too many people on the trail with unsuitable shoes, lots of people turning back when they realise how hard it is. Lots of bugs throughout, the first 2 thirds were black flies which didn’t seem to bite, the final third and at the top were all mosquitos and we got bitten loads even with bug spray. We saw lots of Pika and the waterfall is epic so do look out for that to the right from a clearing about 2 thirds up. Stop at Dusty’s BBQ in Creekside for nachos to refuel for the journey home.

The Skyline Divide trail brought about one of those few "wow" moments in life. A perfect day hike for a bit of a workout and breathtaking views. Read my full trip report at https://www.gatlincreatives.com/blog/skylinedivide and watch the full weekend camping trip!

Did this hike on Sunday August 5. Beautiful and busy trail. Scenery is outstanding once you get up to the ridge. A little buggy in the afternoon but not terrible. Road in has some holes but generally in good shape.

Trail Is Still Closed At This Time. The Historic Columbia River Highway is Closed Until Further Notice. This Includes Trails Between Bridal Veil Falls and Multnomah, and Trails Between Multnomah and Ainsworth State Park. The Road Is Only Open To State Troopers, Game and WildLife Patrolmen, and Residents That Live On That Road. Anyone Caught Trying To Hike Said Trails Are Fined. This Is All Due To The Bad Fire They Had Last Year And Several Told Me They Aren't Sure When It Should Be Open. One Trooper Told Me It's Looking Like It Will Be June 2019. :( That Means Oneonta George, Oneonta Falls, Horsetail Falls, Ponytail Falls, Larch Mountain Overlook, Fairy Falls, & Wahkeena Falls Are All Closed Until Further Notice. If You Are Looking For Alternatives, You Can Look Into Multnomah Falls & Trails, Latourell Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, and Vista House. You Can Also Take A Drive To Ramona Falls.

Really great hike, Views are amazing!!!!!!!

It’s considered to be one of the hardest hikes. It’s challenging, don’t get me wrong, but I felt some other reviews built up that part a bit... so if your on the edge and worried it’s to hard, just do it. (Did a day hike)

Bring a light sweater, when the sun isn’t shining can get a little chilli at the top only.

Only negative, there are some big dear flies at the top, and some smaller horse flies in the way up/down. Bring bug spray

Beautiful trail, bugs are out to get ya if you camp out on the ridge. Also, service road is about 13 miles long with some decent sized potholes. We saw plenty of Priuses making it up though so the road shouldnt be an issue if you look ahead for them. Beautiful sights made it one of the better backpacking trip I've done here so far. Bring plenty of water. Enjoy!

Go early it’s busy. Bring water for dogs not a lot of streams but there is some snow close to the top (beginning of aug)

Amazing views, especially in the fall with yellow larch trees. My favourite hike so far!

Did this last weekend. As a new hiker I found it tough, but it left me wanting more! Bring bug spray! Lots of hungry mosquitos. Road up was fine, just the last couple of km were pretty rough. See excellent description by BK Kennedy.

Fun hike ending at a gorgeous lake. And there were marmots up there too!

We did it as a day hike, which is doable but pretty tough.

The trail was absolutely plagued by mosquitoes and big black flies, and they both swarm you whenever you take a break. We were not prepared for this, which took all of the fun out of the descent.

All in all an amazing day hike that was made slightly worse by our lack of preparedness .

Awesome hike with a climb all the way up, never too steep. 100% worth for the views and big rocks at the top, perfect for sitting to enjoy lunch. Took about 2 hours to go up (decent pace). We loved it!

This was a beautiful hike! We really enjoyed it, and the views were just stunning. Was a pretty gradual hike and easy to follow trail following the inuksuk’s through the scree. The hike itself took about 4.5 hours with a lunch break. The road was in decent condition for most of the drive but the last couple KM were really tough with potholes, sinkholes and encroaching brush, some maintenance is definitely needed.

Did this one yesterday. poor our car! if you are not driving a tall 4 wheel drive that last 40 min of drive would be a roalercoaster with flying stines, dust and it would take more than an hour. there is some camping on that road though, which is amazing.
Trail is beautiful! Most people just go up and do not go though the ridge.
We did go to Chain lakes today and id say views were about same spectacular, but road was really nice, so next time not sure which one would i choose.

Not technically difficult but very physically demanding hike. It’s basically a constant steep climb all the way to the top. Above the lake you reach a meadow that gives a bit of a break. Very hard but very beautiful hike and the views at the top are well worth the effort. For a fit person plan on at least two hours up and an hour and a half down. There’s only one snow patch left to cross and it didn’t give us any trouble. Great hike.

First couple of miles in the forest with minor gains in elevation. Then the party begins once you get out into the open. Significant elevation gains and some of the best scenery imaginable. Glaciers, snow capped peaks, waterfalls and plenty of white water. Hardly any bugs and the temps were comfortable. Highly recommended. Don’t miss this one.

Great hike in a beautiful park. It can be completed in five hours if you have lunch at the top. Plan to spend a little more time and enjoy it.

You're able to drive to the parking lot without issue at this time.

July 25th. A buddy and I went and took us 3.5 hours up and 2.25 hours down. Amazing scenery once you hit the top peak. Bring lots of water. Bugs were a pest such as mosquitos, flies and horseflies ( I think ) it was all worth it!
