This is a beautiful but steep trail. Don't hike this trail if you are scared of a challenge! My friends and I decided to spend May long up at the lake and camp; when we arrived at the lake it was frozen and still had a fair amount of snow all around the lake. We decided to truck through the snow to the far end of the lake where we found the campsite. I had done this trail years before also and it snowed on us in the middle of July.... life in the mountains! Regardless of all the snow both times it was a beautiful hike and a peaceful place to camp.

Incredible Hike, but definitely more strenuous than we ever could have imagined! It is 6 km up and 6 km down....and when we say up we mean straight up!! We went last week and there was still quite a bit of snow present. We definitely wouldn't have known which way to go if it hadn't been for a group ahead of us that made tracks in the snow. Definitely require good footwear. Incredible views!

Just did this hike for the second time November long weekend. A little hung over and started late so we had to turn around before finishing so we would get out before dark. Will definitely do it again and camp next time.

Beautiful and challenging grunt up with fabulous views of Abraham Lake. We camped at Allstones for a couple of nights, hiked up to the summit. Breathtaking!

Great, challenging hike. Steady, consistent incline right from the start but it's worth it. It's about an hour to get above the tree line, but once you do you have an amazing view of Abraham Lake for the rest of your hike. There will be a fork in the trail when you have nearly reached the lake. Take a left to head to the lake, or go right to reach the summit. It's a good idea to go to Allstones Lake, have lunch and rest up for the final push to the summit! Definitely a must do hike for all hikers!

Awesome. Great trail right to the peak (about 400' higher than than turn off to the lake.) 2 hours to the peak, 1.5 hrs back with my 11 year old son in the rain.

Steep climb a lot of the way up, but well worth the effort.
Lake had lots of fish jumping in it :)
Beautiful views.
