This was a beautiful trail. What I loved is it wasn’t too difficult, nice for a quick weekender, the lake was stunning! We swam in it, it was cold! What I would do different, not go over a long weekend. We went over the September long weekend, it was so busy we almost couldn’t find a spot to camp in either of the designated areas. I would go midweek if I were to do it again, just to keep the people to a minimum.

recommended hike!

Did this trip over May long weekend this year. Lots of mosquitoes at the beginning of the trail. There was still a fair bit of snow near the falls but was easy enough to hike over. Unable to make it to love lake at this time of year due to the snow.

My daughter (7), our pup and I backpacked to the tent pads at Lake Helen McKenzie and spent a night. It was heavenly!

Great hike. I’d love to go back on a clear day. We didn’t get much of a view!

This trail shouldn't be labeled hard. There is a fair bit of up but almost no scrambling. It's a very rewarding hike because it's short (4.5 hour round trip without rushing) with a beautiful view at the top.
Could easily do this in the morning and still have your afternoon free!

Amazing view! It was my first time backpacking and going on a hike. It was a great experience! Sadly it was foggy, rainy and snowy. I suggest that you go in the summer time! Otherwise it was an amazing experience.

Vraiment un beau coin de pays!! J’ai adoré faire la mont albert edward à la course à pied.. Je le recommande à tous!!

BEAUTIFUL hike!! Steeper than I expected but the views and scenery were well worth it. Took us about 3.5hrs up, with lots of breaks.

Great long day hike

Great views at the top!!!

Soooo pretty even on a soggy day ... would love to see it in the sunshine

This is my fave hike. I do it once a week in the spring to summer end. It’s beautiful! Great for beginners and lots of spots to rest. Bring a bathing suit in the summer hot days. Lots of great swimming opportunities and amazing lunch spots.

A friend and myself started this Hike at about 3 o’clock, the sun went down at about 8 o’clock, we got down at about 9 o’clock. It was a very fun hike but it was harder than I expected when reading a couple of websites. This is a dog friendly hike and a hike I will definitely do again.

This is an excellent hike with three water falls on the way. The view from the summit is incredible, make sure you go up on a clear day. Follow the trail, at some spots it is easy to get lost.

Loved this trail! My very first ever over night hike with a large pack and this trail was definitely a good hike for me. My hubby has done a few before and he said this one was moderate. We loved the option of two campsites, but it’s short enough it makes sense to go to the second and set up camp , there are tons of spots for tents and a few options for hammocks which we used ( I gets cold ar night so bundle up! ) we took the second day to go up to the lake which only an hour and then we hiked Around the lake to the left ( it’s a hidden trail , but it’s not to bad) and then up to the glacier which was incredible!!! So worth it! Stayed another night and hiked back out. Magical trail!

this place was great! just me and my GSD did this hike over three days. wild blueberries everywhere in August. The weather was great, first 9km we're more of a stroll with a heavy pack. last 6 got a bit challenging at points. Lots of nice rivers to filter water from. Falls were small when we got there but that was expected given late August. we will go again next year in July hopefully.

Fantastic! Picked this hike because we got an Airbnb at Mount Washington and it was close by. Got really lucky because this was beautiful! Not too challenging though and absolutely breathtaking. Got to come back and see the area around it someday. The ridge above Moat Lake is beckoning.

Would love to do this hike with someone !

Great trail - but I would say it’s a difficult climb - due to distance and variation in terrain- nice glaciar cold lake at the top. Pretty busy on the weekend.

Very well maintained trail. Felt like a steady incline for most of the hike. Had very cloudy and rainy weather for most of the trip.

Awesome trail and well worth the cost of the water taxi. The hike up to Love Lake is pretty strenuous but offer some amazing views of Della Falls and the lake feeding it. Highly recommend jumping in Love Lake for a swim after the challenging hike up.

Pleasantly surprised with how nice this trail was. Half of the trail is boardwalks and the other half is a regular well maintained trail. Was a 3 hour loop for us with a couple of small stops at the lakes. Had a couple birds come up to us and eat right from our hands. I will be doing this one again for sure

Made it to landslide lake however couldn’t make it to iceberg lake due to the vertical gravel climb at the end, people before us tried to get up and slipped, one guy hurt his leg pretty bad, ouch! There is a lot of uphill along the trail and it reminds me of a harder version ripple rock (tree roots, loose rocks etc). We made a day trip out of it, took almost 11 hours. The views were not that great until the last hour or so as there is a lot of trees blocking anything. View at the top was amazing but I would say not worth 5 hours of grueling hiking. I would also go so far to rate this as difficult and not moderate due to the length and difficulty (canyon view and ripple rock are rated as moderate and are by far much easier). Glad I made it to the end, but won’t do this one again.

Great trail- very beautiful, mostly shaded, well maintained. so many waterfalls and massive trees, the trail is nothing short of amazing. the last 1km was definitely the most difficult. there were lots of bugs so bug spray/nets are recommended. unfortunately we weren't able to make it up to berg lake due to aggressive wasps nests. we heard multiple stories of people and dogs being stung and didnt think it was worth the risk. highly recommend this hike overall!

This was my first hike ever. Since it's a hard hike, it took me longer than half of my group but the trail is well kept. The views are amazing (better than that)!!! We camped overnight and there are fantastic camp spots. Lake at top was warm. The creek at the beginning was icy! Nice on the way down to refresh yourself. There were A LOT of bugs and insects right from the get go, be prepared.

Highly recommended !!!

Great hike! Pass many lakes that are so active with fish! A fishermans dream! Trail is pretty basic till after Kwai lake! It becomes somewhat harder as trails narrow and mostly loose rocks! The perfect place to set up base camp for hiking Mount Albert Edward! Only one thing that was a bit of a
Pain was the mosquitoes! So many !

Well-marked and very beautiful at the top, with a gorgeous view of the Comox Glacier. Definitely worth the uphill climb to get to it.

Great hike during the summer months, still quite a bit of snow when I went (mid June) so that's something to be mindful of. I imagine once the weather is hot for longer the snow will melt.
