Highlight recommend for a gentle hike. Don’t miss the Tantalus Lookout!

Great pretty mellow trail. Has some steep areas but isn’t’ anything crazy. The trail from the main trail to the tantalus viewpoint is pretty rocky and rooty with a lot of stairs. Viewpoints around Cheakamus loop are almost better and less difficult to get to.

Trail is generally in good condition. There were a couple of damaged steam crossing bridges. The path has also turned into a stream in several areas. I would suggest wearing waterproof shoes/boots.

Nice hike! We totalled 12 km with some exploration. The 8km loop around the lake through the alder trail and back along the bridge trail has minimal elevation gain but is a pretty walk through the different forrest types with nice views of the lake. If you want to add some kms and elevation throw in both the tantalus view point and the power line trail loop. We did it all today and it made for a great workout and beautiful views. 4 hours total and around 450 meter gain.

Very easy trail without any difficulties. The trail starts promising with views on the lake. Once you walked parallel with the highway, and crossed the wooden bridge, there is no view or anything interesting left. Vandals have destroyed many of the signage. You should be prepared with a map; at times it could become confusing otherwise, because there is a number of different trail around the lake. * Bridge Trail * Alderman Trail * Cheakamus Loop * High Trail * Tantalus View Trail * Connector Trail * Rock Bluff Loop * Broom Lake Trail Because it took me 1 hr 15 min to get to the trailhead from Vancouver, I was a bit disappointed, because it took me only 2 1/2 hrs to walk all the above mentioned little trails. Anyhow, it was a sunny and warm day and I enjoyed the drive.

Nice moderate trail. Some rocky parts but nothing dangerous. Stairs take you up some of the steepest portions. Gorgeous moss covered boulders and huge Douglas firs. Beautiful lake views and a few other hikers, but pretty quiet. Good for dogs.

A few downed signs but fantastic views from High Trail. Didn’t see many people. Great hike, followed by a swim!

A very beautiful, secluded trails. I tried to do the Powerline trail and Paradise Valley as well. the PL was alright, but it kind of stretched along the highway. There were couple of great viewpoints. This is a poorly marked trail as previous comments also point out. 10 minutes into the Paradise trail, I had to go back as I got too spooked about bears (I didn't see anyone on the 4 hour hike after I passed the initial Brohm beach). I don't know how likely it was to see bears, but the trails have no traffic and I wasn't sure. It was very pretty and was a lovely hike for a warm day.

Trails are very well maintained and marked by signs with maps.

Pretty hike around the lake with a few spots you can stop and get to the water. The second half past tantalus viewpoint is all forested but beautiful. You get a few good views from that side too.

Excellent! Tantalus views are amazing from the ridge. Lovely shoulder season hike or for a hot day with lots of tree cover. Bridges and stairs at the NW portion newly rebuilt. A bit of road noise for 2 km. picnic at lake view points, can swim. Signs are vandalized. View points are off the main trial and signs missing. We missed a big one. Bring gps and when you reach the top, just before large descents, look for logical viewpoints, and look for side trails. Main paths are very maintained, but easy to take wrong path.

Very disappointing because some nice person took off the trail signs on each trail marker for the portion of the map that you need to see. I missed several turns and never made it to Tantalus view point because of this. This trail needs some maintenance.

Nice trail but compared to what is around, doesn't have the best views. Take the gps as there's alot of trails that cross over and the maps are sometimes vandalized. There is a section right up against the highway, otherwise pretty nice for a 2-4 hour walk

did this hike with a friend on a rainy Sunday afternoon and need to do again as we took a wrong turn. have to disagree that the trail is well marked as some of the marker posts have been vandalized and you can't see the arrows. we took a wrong turn and ended up on the Brohm creek trail not the lake trail, descended a huge rock hill and had to climb back up it. as I had just discovered this app I didn't think to use the map and was trying google maps. when we finally did use the app it saved us and got us back on the right path. thanks!!

Very good signage, easy to stay on the correct trail. Easy-moderate hike, good for dogs, did this hike in the rain due to tree coverage and less incline (less mud, less slipping) and was very enjoyable. Good rainy day hike!

Easy to slightly moderate trail (there are a few steep areas and flights of stairs). We did the smallest loop around the lake (4ish kms) with a 12-year old who had no issues. Some pretty views of the lake, but mostly forested throughout. Very easily accessible, there is parking right off the highway. Trail was lightly trafficked but there were a lot of people hanging around the lake and swimming - would recommend getting out early to get a parking spot. You can also add to the main loop around the lake and make this a much longer hike as there are various connecting side trails.

I would rate the Brohm Lake trails from moderate to easy. I did the Brohm Lake trails and got the connector trail to reach the Tantalus View Trail. There are 3 or 4 short steep sections that will require some effort, but totally doable. A wold say this trails is good to go for people with 13 years old and up. (I don't have kids yet, but I feel younger kids may complain on the steeper parts) There's not much to see on the trails it self, but the view at the top of the Tantalus view trail is incredible! For such a "short" hike, it's a very nice reward. I recommend starting early, as it gets "crowded" on weekends and the trails get a little busy.
