It's really nice half day hike. Busy at the afternoon, but if you start early in the morning it's gorgeous and quiet.

Hidden Lake on South end of trail, great diversion...gorgeous view. Excellent hike!

Loved this trail. Continuous up and down climb but not steep. Varied terrain. Lots of rock slides. Some forest and stunning views of the lake. Weather changes fast and we heard a thunderstorm roll in for the last 5km but luckily not much rain until we had finished the trail.

Very long hiked, we did the loop, nice to hike when you want to enjoy the view. 90% of the hike have lake & mountain view, so beautiful. Just under 5 hours with few stop lunch & snacks! Easy hike!

So beautiful and longggggg....trail was really packed down. Lake, trees, rocks, foliage, you walk through it all! The trail is only tough because it's long. We are pretty new hikers but managed ok! No intense inclines. We clocked hike at about 16k and took exactly 4 hours with minimal break.

A great hike with awesome views. We took our kids (4 and 6yrs) 2.4km and back. For a 4.8km hike good elevation gain but manageable.
