July 1st, 2020 - still quite a bit of pact snow near the top. Make sure to have proper hiking boots/shoes and poles. Watch for falling rocks from both sides, saw 4-5 times rocks falling probably because of too much rain. Trailmap shows to go through the creek, maybe thats the winter route. But keep to the left of the creek over. I will definitely do this again - best possible views, water, lake, forest and balanced distance and slightly difficult.

Went from Lake Magog through Wonder Pass down to the Mt Shark parking lot on our way out. We went through Wonder Pass on Sunday June 28/20. There was still plenty of snow and in many places, the snow went up past our knees and we were post-holing for about 2 KM. As we descended, we got amazing views of Marvel Lake. The trail that over looks Marvel Lake was clear of snow. Some trees to climb over on the trail. We came across a lot of bear scat on the trail, some bear tracks, and an old carcass directly on the trail.

We ended up just going to the lake as the weather turned and it was windy, cold and snowy. Had to cross a snow bridge at a waterfall about 2km before the lake; I couldn’t tell if there’s normally a bridge there. With warm weather that will melt soon!

bridge out

Started this one today, in the pouring rain. Crossed the first bridge, but the second is washed out. There is a down tree that I’m sure some could walk across, though my balance is not that spectacular and the river is fast right now. I turned around.

Did this hike on the 29th of June 2020. We left from the lake and followed the traffic of people up the path. Gradual climb on a wide trail, crowded up to mirror lake. Once you get there you can go right to the tea house or left towards the big beehive lookout. We went left and had the trail to ourselves it was great! Some cool views and trails. Flat ish’ for a while until you get to the switchbacks that take you up to the lookout. Rocks, roots snow and some mud. Steep incline and feels like forever haha. But we’ve been hiking for 4 days now so maybe our legs are tired. Amazing views at the top you can hang there for a while and enjoy. We took the tea house switchbacks on the way down, way faster but way more sketchy. Lots of snow, loose rock and single lane areas. We don’t have poles and made it fine. More amazing views and the lake at the bottom is beautiful. Got an 8 skip throw with a rock! Unfortunately we started late and the tea house was closed but cool to see, remember cash only! We read a sign that said “cash preferred” but everyone says cash only. The trail down from the tea house again was sketchy but I think there was another route. After that you’re back on the main trail down from mirror lake. Took us 5 hours but we hung out a lot getting pics and also slow going because our legs are so sore! Enjoy your hike!

Great hike. Tons of nice views featuring rivers, blue lakes and waterfalls. As well as nice looks at the mountains. Had to walk through lots of snow after around the 7 km mark but just added to the fun. Definitely worth the long hike took us 6 and a half hours.

I have been on this trail before and it was magnificent! I just attempted to go threw Skoki Mountain Approach yesterday and you CANNOT GET THREW! There is way too much snow (up to waist deep) and streams which have covered the path. It is not passible at the waterfall at all. I wouldn't go on this part of the trail until late July.

This is the trip out from an overnight at Egypt Lake. The trail is well established and contrary to older reviews, the sights in Healy Meadows and at Egypt Lake are outstanding. The Mountain Lillies are in full bloom and you walk through fields of them. We stayed at the Parks Canada E13 Campsite. There needs to be some work the #2 site from deadfall and the shelter is unfortunately closed. It would have been amazing to have a fire to warm up but overall the campsite is in great condition. Walking up to the lake is worth it, the lake itself is amazing. The Sphinx to the left of the waterfall definitely looks like it’s namesake. We met a Parks Canada employee who tried to get up to Scarab Lake and there’s deadfall and snow blocking the path a couple hundred meters in. The trail overall is still wet and snowy but traversable. Gaiters and poles definitely helped, minimal but some post holing at Healy Pass and down to E13 campsite. In a week or two conditions will be great but head up now if you love Mountain Lillies.

Just completed the full Skoki Loop trail this weekend in 3 days. The trail is extremely wet and muddy for most of the length. Some sections will be drying out soon, but others may stay muddy for a while because of run off. There is snow sporadically blocking the trail between Hidden Lake and just past Baker Lake that can mostly be crossed, but can get pretty deep. Definitely need gaiters. Porcupines are still active at Baker Lake campsite, so keep your boots hanging off the ground if they are outside your tent! Overall, both campsites we stayed at (Baker Lake and Merlin Meadows) were in good condition regarding outhouses, bear hangs, and tent pads. We chose to come back over Deception Pass instead of Packer's Pass because of fresh snow making route finding a bit more difficult. There is still lots of snow going over the pass and it snowed more Saturday (June 27) night. All that being said I think this was my favourite backpacking trip yet! The views were spectacular, I will be going back again soon!

June 26-27, 2020 - Great trail to a great lake!! I would love to do this one again at the end of July or August. Trail conditions when we went were damp. There was still a fair bit of snow at the top of Healy Pass and down the other side to Egypt Lake. We were still able to make it through but gaiters would of been useful. I’ve never seen as many wildflowers before!

A favorite. Long haul, and great hike to the top with pretty limited exposure and no difficult scramble. Beautiful varied scenery along the way. Incredible vistas at the top. No one in sight up top!
