Our first backpacking trip, a fair amount of variety for relatively short trail. Mostly uphill on the way out, downhill back. A short part of the trail, about 3/4 of the way in, dips below the water line of a nearby pond and it was partially under water (< 1 ft deep). If you hike this trail, I would highly recommend doing the Devona Lookout trail as well. It adds a couple km each way, but it offers some really awesome scenic views that the rest of the trail lacks. To get to it, just keep going straight when you get to the turnoff to Celestine Lake.

A moderate hike in bear country that is well marked. The road in is narrow, windy and is fairly steep in places with larger rocks. Beautiful wild flowers, some majestic views on the way to tranquil Celestine lake. This is considered semi primitive as there is a water pump, bear pole, and open privy. Nicely set up with tent pads in one area, picnic tables in another with the bear pole and the privy off the path up the hill a bit. Trees are falling randomly so pick the place to set your tent mindfully... about 3 trees fell in the 24 hours we were there. This was our first time backpacking and we are hooked!

Make sure you have a truck to get to the trailhead. The trail is an easy hike but in terms of nice views it's ok, mainly a walk through trees.

We had a truck to get to the trail head, and we were thankful we did! The trail was very treed in. It was easy and peaceful. After we set up camp we did a little hike up the mountain. It was very pretty up there. Overall it was fun and I would do it again.

Lots of downed trees on the trail, but a pretty easy walk to the lake. A hike around the lake (more animal trail than hiking trail) was nice and revealed new views of surrounding mountains compared to the lake view from the campsite.

The road to it was challenging. Rough and hard on your vehicle. Don’t do it in a sedan!!! However, once there, it was a nice , easy hike with modest elevation gain. Will backpack there to spend a few night next time. The lake is beautiful!

We wanted to do the hike today, but because of road restriction we couldn't get to the beginning. You have to cross a little river which is not possible with something smaler than a SUV. So we left the car at the "19km to the trail" sign and hiked up the Hill for a few km before we turned around. It's beautiful up there with a great view of Athabasca River. I assume the landscape is around the same I rate 4 stars, not giving one for not veing able to reach it with every car
