This was one of my favorite trail, the lookout is absolutely stunning but be aware that there are tics in the lookout, my friend and I catched some because we layed down to look at the view.

Great hike nice and easy except the last few km, they are just steep not technical. Wonderful view 6 hours round trip with a lunch! I would highly recommend.

Mostly flat except for the last km. Not hard if u don't mind long hikes. U get a nice view of the lake since u have to walk along it from most of the time. The view at the end is what makes this hike worth. Nice to do once at least. Be aware that there is lots of grizzlies all summer long.

Great hike. Way too long for what you get at the lookout. If you have a chance to bike the first part do so. This will save lots of time and will keep everyone happy. All and all a good hike.

It is a great trail, long but beautiful.
Stay on the well maintained trail and there are many signs to guide you to lookout.
