This trail was amazing ! Did it from may 27-30 and we had warm hot weather and clear skies. 10/10 would do it again. We were lucky and we're 1 day before registration so also did not have to pay for overnight camping. We stayed at whitehorn , berg lake , and Kinney lake on the way back

This whole hike is incredible. It is ever changing and beautiful at every turn. If there is ever a hard section it comes with a huge reward. Likely to meet fantastic people along the way too. This is a hike everyone should experience once in thier lives. Don't let the difficulty rating deter you, people of all ages on this trail.

Lots of great amenities for the first time multi-day hiker. A rugged but well maintained trail that makes this a good choice for anyone just starting to get serious about spending a few nights in the outdoors. The scenery is non-stop breathtaking.

It was beautiful and clear on the 2 day hike to Burg Lake. Rainy, on the way back on the third day, but lovely again as we walked out on day 4.

Amazing! The switch backs are a challenge but the whole thing is so worth it! If you do it in one day it will take you around 12 hours or so!

Amazing! One of my favourite places of all time. Such beautiful glaciers, waterfalls, snow capped peaks, crystal clear lakes etc.

Incredible waterfalls, beautiful lakes with mountainous backdrops, and plenty of glaciers. I hiked this trail in July 15... The ONLY downside was the large number of mosquitoes and flies. Snowbird Pass and Tobogan Falls are worth the day hikes as well.

I backpacked this in July'14' for four days and had awesome clear skies for all four days. The amazing amount of variety along the trail is stunning and will keep you mesmerized the whole way. If you are an avid hiker, this is a top five anywhere in the world. I camped at Berg and Rearguard though this year (YES, I'm going back), I think I'll take a site near the flowing river at Emperor Falls for a incoming night.
Add Snowbird Pass, at least up to the Robson Glacier and Mumm Basin if you have more time BUT do GO..! What a road trip (fifteen hours for me from WA State-USA.
