Moderate hike to Window Mountain Lake. Good vehicle clearance needed to get to the trailhead but easy to find once you get there (follow the small orange spraypainted "WML"s).

The hike itself is beautiful and well marked! Fairly steady climb once you make it to the tree line but quite short :) The main issue we ran into was the drive to the trail head. High vehicle clearance is more or less a necessity; we completed it in a VW Golf but went about 20 km/hr once we hit the true mountain road and ended up driving all over the road in order to avoid bottoming out. We were definitely the only "car" out there! I want to post that the turnoff for the trail head parking area is at Km marker 14. We ended up driving quite far past this turnoff as it is not obvious. Will definitely return again to enjoy both the climb and the reward of the beautiful lake at the top!

Took my 7 year old twins on their first over night backpacking trip here this weekend. It was a perfect introduction to the back country and has lit a fire in them... they didn’t want to leave!

The road is a bit rough getting in, but a great hike, with beautiful scenery, and not too heavily traveled, don’t forget your fishing rod the fishing was good when we were there.
