Hiked in from Forks Campground. Took 2.5 hours in, 1.25 hours out. Beautiful views. Definitely recommend if you are in the area.

Took about five hours to hike in, four to hike out. Climbed mount Putnik on the second day which is an outstanding, albeit extremely exposed scramble. Beautiful, well-maintained trail and campsites.

Elevation gain is nowhere near the stated 1200 m though. Reality is slightly less than 500. Steep section shortly before the three I’ll campground; other than that pretty easy-going the whole way. Highly recommended!

Well maintained trail with beautiful scenery. Some intense elevation gains, be sure to give yourself lots of time or plan to stay at Point overnight.

Amazing hike from North Interlake. I stayed in Point on the first night and then my dad met me in Three Isle Lake the second. Beautiful scenery, nice path(grueling elevation gain for the last 1.5km). Swimming in the lake was the perfect way to cool down after the tiring climb.

Awesome overnight hike. We biked the first 3.5km then hiked the rest. The last 1-2km is the hardest with the greatest incline. I would suggest staying overnight for this hike

Spent 2 nights up at Three Isle Lake in 2014 with my kids. A few steep sections while climbing the head wall, but the lake is well worth it. Lots of day hikes available using the lake as a base camp

Hiked it on a rainy/misty day to the Point camp ground and to the falls.

Lots of up-hill (obviously). The trail is wide and easy until you reach the a fork in the path. There's and upper path which is generally easier. The lower path takes you over a large rock slide and a rough trail. Both trails meet up again.

There's pika in that area as well as we saw two. There's also many grizzlies and black bears in the area. Not to mention golden mantled ground squirrel who are very clearly bagging for food. DO NOT FEED WILD ANIMALS for their own sake...
