    Drove up to do this and it was ridiculously crowded. Definitely go early if you don't want to wait in a massive line of cars for parking. 360 views of Bar Harbor as you go around the loop and plenty of photo ops. Lots of rock edges where you can get different views/angles etc or just sit and have lunch.

    Cy Z reviewed Beehive to Gorham Mountain to Ocean Path Loop

    about 1 month ago

    Worth doing if you want to do a few hikes in one. Started on Beehive then connected to Gorham Mountain, which then made its way down to Park Loop Rd to connect to Ocean Path. Beautiful views on Beehive of Sand Beach and the coast, and again amazing views on top of Gorham Mountain. Finishing with the Ocean Path is nice and lowkey.

    Similar to Precipice Trail in that there are iron rungs/ladders you need to climb to get to the top of Beehive. Be careful, wear good shoes, and be warned if you're afraid of heights. Did this the same day as Precipice and it was very crowded given that it's tourist season. It's meant to be done as a loop because going back down the way you came up is dangerous especially when many people are trying to make their way to the top. Absolutely stunning views of the coast line and Sand Beach. After you summit, you eventually make your way down to The Bowl lake, which is a great spot for a dip if you're keen. I continued on the loop and ended up connecting to the Gorham Mountain trail instead of heading back to the parking lot. I recommend doing this if you want to do two hikes in one.

    Ended up taking this path down from Champlain Mountain after missing the Orange/Black trail junction to the parking lot. Has some nice views of foliage/Highway 3 and The Tarn.

    Did this hike in the thick of tourist season (2 days ago) and it's very popular so be warned. Ended up having to wait as a family climbed up with a guide who didn't leave way for folks to pass so there was a backup with many of us having to wait after each segment for at least 25 minutes. Minus the waits, did this hike in about 35 minutes (incl summit to Champlain Mountain). Precipice Trail technically ends before Champlain Mountain and you can choose to head down the Orange/Black trail or continue on to summit.

    This is listed as a hard hike, but if you're an avid/experienced hiker this is definitely more on the moderate side in my opinion (but this is based on comparing it to previous hikes I've done). Combination of rock scrambles, rock steps, and iron rungs/ladders as you gain in elevation over a short distance is what makes the hike intense for some. If you aren't comfortable with heights, be warned that you'll be on cliff edges at some point (with iron rungs to hold on to) but nevertheless, this isn't for the faint hearted. You get great views as you eventually get above the trees, but the best views are if you continue onto Champlain Mountain. Bring a hiking trail map to figure out which way down is the best depending on your plans. If you end up on the other side of the mountain and miss the Orange/Black trail (like me and a couple did), you can take the free shuttle back to the parking lot no problem.

    Cy Z reviewed Elfin Lakes (Diamondhead)

    Did this hike as an overnight at the hut the same day as completing Joffre Lakes. Took about 3.5 hours to get there. No snow for the first 1-2km, then patchy leading up to Red Heather Hut. After Red Heather (5km mark) it's all snow from there. Winter route is still in effect, so follow the tall orange trail markers. Did this in boots/wool socks. Definitely doable without snowshoes, just be careful with your footing at times because you might be walking over creeks covered in snow. Some areas of the trail are narrow/have steep drop offs so mind your footing in these spots as well. You'll see a post saying '5km to Elfin, 17km to Mamquam', be warned that this is a bit misleading because you'll end up seeing another post saying '5km to Elfin and 16km to Mamquam' after trekking for some time. One of them is likely a post for the summer route. Feels long going towards the lakes, but you get a nice view of Mount Garibaldi, the Tantalus range from afar, and snow slopes. Lakes are still mostly frozen over with only a few feet of the edges melted. Stayed in the hut which was warm and cozy. There were two couples there with us. Sunset was beautiful along the Tantalus Range. Campground is fully covered in snow, but if you do choose to camp there you'll have an amazing view of the mountains and a sunrise worth waking up for. No ranger on site at the time. Hiked back to parking lot in 2.75 hours and felt much quicker than the way there.

    Did this hike the same day as Panorama Ridge from Garibaldi Lake Campground with a full pack! Ended up being hiking buddies with a couple and we decided to do it while on our way back from Panorama Ridge and just turned at the junction for Black Tusk (3km as listed on junction post). Took us 1.5 hours to the top. All uphill and intense workout. Trail was hard to find as few people had done it so there weren't many footprints to follow but I thankfully I had an offline map to guide us. Snow covered of course. As you go higher in elevation, snowshoes could be helpful but I did it in boots/wool socks and the couple had hiking boots and it was certainly manageable. Lovely views of the valley, Garibaldi Lake from afar, and Panorama Ridge. Didn't go up the chimney, but went up another steep area that had great views. A hiking pole is definitely useful just for stability/security when going up some of the steep parts (the couple let me one!). We hiked back to Rubble Creek Lot in just under 4 hours and we slid down some parts of the mountain for fun!

    Did this as an overnight hike the same day I completed an overnight at Elfin Lakes. Was exhausted from the Elfin Lakes hike, but managed to get to Garibaldi in just under 4 hours. First 6km is neverending switchbacks and there isn't much to see. At the junction, you'll have to take the Taylor Meadows route to get to Garibaldi since the bridge is out. Snow starts about 1km after the junction and is patchy throughout and muddy in some areas. Wore boots/wool socks. The last 500m of the trail you'll need to walk along rocks/snow on the lakeshore, so be careful and mind your footing. Campground is full of snow and there were only a couple tent pads uncovered probably from people digging them out themselves. Ended up camping along the rocks/lakeshore since there were some flat spots--way better view than in the tree-surrounded campground anyway! Another group of two did the same as me. No ranger was on site so we got lucky. Beautiful lakeshore view and caught the sunset. Too tired to wake for sunrise but I imagine it was stunning. A quiet and peaceful overnight hike and worth the tiring switchbacks going up.

    The lakes are as beautiful as I expected. TURKWAZZZ blue colour. No snow on trail. Definitely go on a sunny day, as the lakes will be at their bluest with the sun shining on them. Took a couple minutes from parking lot to Lower Lake, followed by 40 min to Middle Lake, and 25 min to Upper Lake. Time estimates to each lake are definitely on the conservative side, so if you're a decent/fast hiker, it'll be much faster than what's posted. Get here early because it's a very popular hike, even on weekdays. Started at 7:45am and spent 6 hours here. On our hike back, there were lots of people at the lakes/hiking up.

    Worth the gruelling uphill. 75% of it is steep uphill hiking so beware. Last 25% is mostly flat and a great break until you reach the main viewpoint. Took me just under 2 hours to get to the top. Descent took a little over an hour. A beautiful view of Howe Sound, Anvil Island, Bowen Island, etc. Sunset/sunrise here is stunning. On weekends this is a very popular hike; get to the parking lot before 8am or else you'll have to wait for a spot until someone comes down.
