We hiked to Munroe lake on June 15. There is definitely snow up there but not so much that it was hard walking. The trail is well marked and we saw only one person which is great for owners of a reactive dog. It took us about 6.5 hours including a 1.5 hour rest time at the lake for the dog to swim. We will do this hike again.

Really enjoyed the hike with the reward of Munro Lake at the end. Couldn't continue onto Dennett Lake as there was still quite a lot of deep snow on the ground once we go to the top. Only came across half a dozen other hikers on a Sunday so it appears to be lightly travelled.

Trail is in good shape. Lots of h20 along the route if you want to filter/treat vs pack it in. No garbage along trail as stated in previous review (thank you whomever cleaned it up). A steep clim right off the bat which continues to ridge (two hours and 2600 feet). Lots of snow up to so be prepared.

First off, Google maps says that the trail head is on the right, but it's on the left if you are coming from the main road. There is also no actual sign anymore signaling the entrance. The trail was alright but it's quite dirty. Lots of garbage left along the majority of the route.

Still snow pack at the top so the trail gets hard to follow. The frogs were a joy to see, they were everywhere. Watch where you step. Would definitely do this again, hardly any people.

This is a lightly trafficked trail, which is nice because there are many trails in the area that are packed with people. I didn't see another soul the whole time I was up there. When I did get to the top (Munro Lake), I was somewhat disappointed. The bank was muddy and the water brackish. It's still hiking in BC though, so amazing regardless.

Followed the directions on the site to get to the start of the trail but never found it. Very disappointing. Google Map said we were there but no trail on site. Would like to try again.

This hike is incredible! Defiantly a difficult hike for me, but the view spots and Munro lake were very rewarding!

This hike took my group about 4 hours round trip, that was with a couple breaks! Loved how the terrain changed so much, there is a lot of variety on this trail!

Will do this one again!

Great hike although very steep and switchbacky. We went in April and There was still about 5 feet of snow on the ground up at Munro lake and Dennett Lake. Before getting to Dennett lake there is a view point off to the left that is a big rocky bluff you can see from Munro Lake. The views are amazing. We were lucky there were other footprints to guide us as all the snow made it hard to find trail markers. Overall other than the descent being extremely rough on the knees it was a great hike.

Went up January 28th. We didn't expect over a foot of snow at the base of Munro Lake, couldn't go all the way through as we were not wearing the proper footwear for snow.

We went up the majority of the elevation until it leveled out right before Munro Lake.

Definitely a good hike, the stretch up to Munro Lake is all uphill with a lot of elevation gain and very little flat parts.
