Good access to Butterwort and Gravel Flats campsites, trail is nice and clear to the bridge at Landslide Creek. Final 1km to Landslide Lake is on exposed rock and care should be taken under wet conditions as it is covered in lichen in spots. Beyond Landslide Lake you can stay east to Burg Lake which is arguably prettier and well worth the extra 1.5hrs return. Campsites esp. at gravel flats were great and hikers had been doing a good job of removing their garbage, unlike the core area of Strathcona

lovely trail that is really well maintained.

Highly recommend this trail. It provides all types of terrain. It took us 8 hours round trip with a stop at the lake for lunch. As everyone has stated the final ascent at the end of the trail to get to the lake is totally worth it for what you get to see.

My first ever backpacking trip. Me and my friends were quite inexperienced when it comes to backpacking, so it took us the full 6 hours to get to the 2nd campsite, but as mentioned, once you get past the first campsite it’s uphill the rest of the way. Needless to say, we took our time! Haha I would definitely do it again! So insanely beautiful!

Did this hike over the weekend. Conditions were not the best, low visibility but still a good hike with some decent challenges. I would do it again as long as the weather was cooperating as I’d like to see the views from the summit that everyone speaks of.

Definitely bring hiking poles or find a very sturdy stick; the way down will be more of a controlled fall (if you don’t)... if you can gain control. Beautiful hike top to bottom, got robbed of the views up too because it was completely clouded over though. Hammered it out in one day 9hrs round-trip

Made it 3/4 of the way but turned back because my shoes were garbage and I didnt want to wipe out and fall down the glacier. It was absolutely breathtaking and is quite the accomplishment as far as hiking goes.

first off the distance on the app is wildly inaccurate. it was about 6km to the lake. with a short hike to the top where the tower is it came to an even 15km round trip. I'd give 3 stars but the view at the top is easily worth the fourth. the hike is a tough grind up endless switchbacks mostly through the forest until the very last portion where there is a view. The hike up is rather uninteresting and not very technical, just steep. some nice spots with a stream running that you cross. The view from the top is stunning and there are a couple small meltwater lakes at the top that are perfect for a dip (feet or swim). Don't think I'll do this one again. The juice wasn't quite worth the squeeze with the unimpressive grind up and down.

This is a lovely easy hike, brought our 3 children ages 11,12&15 and they were tired out after. Lovely views plenty of wildlife and not much traffic

excellent hike, and view of the lake and the mountains is definitely worth the climb! First 6k are relatively flat, and steepens up towards the second campsite. The last 2km to the lake are very steep, but worth the climb!

Great hike. We went to Helen McKenzie then completed the route to Battleship Lake then home. 2 hrs and 7 minutes with stops and viewpoints along the way. id call it moderate only due to tree roots on the trail at times. very well maintained. We will definitely go back.

My friend and I did this as a day hike. Total time took us 13 hours return. There’s still lots of snow on the trail. We did see people wearing runners and hiking to the top so it’s doable, not ideal. Wear good shoes, bring an extra pair of socks & have lots of bug spray on hand. Would definitely split it up into two days next time to treat the knees and feet a bit more nicely

I am looking for a walking companion for this trail (June 23-25)!

This trail is an easy 3 hour walk with nice views and wildlife. Some snow remains but not on path. It follows a boardwalk half the time whilst the other half is dirt; stairs and tree roots are only obstacles. It would be muddy after rain so hiking boots a must! Bugs currently about but no real concern with them.

A group of us + 3 dogs just completed (June 14th-16th, 2019) Great central trailhead to Della falls base (15.2kms one way), and love lake look out (3kms one way). Weather conditions were great. First 3-4km or so into the trail the mosquitoes were terrible, after that we did not experience anymore mosquitoes, but there was quite a bit of devils club through out some sections of the trail. Overall, I would highly recommend this trail, it was amazing, lots of water on the trail on the way to Della falls. Love lake however has a few water sections in the beginning then nothing until you hit the lake, so fill up when you can and make sure you have enough for your dogs too. It’s a great trail for dogs, with a few sections where it’s a little sketchy for them that they might need some assistance for their safety. The falls were great at this time of year and there was reports that Love lake was still frozen, when we got there love lake was completely unthawed. Bit of snow on the top of the look out still however but nothing to worry about. Would also highly recommend pre-booking the shuttle service! They were great!
