It's been said many times that this hike is awesome but it is certainly tough for the first 45 mins or so at sometimes 25 degrees incline. The lake is very pretty and surprisingly warm for a dip. We encountered snow in some shaded areas which was also fun considering it was 35C or so. Great fun!

Great trail, steep and rooty at the beginning so watch your footing. Once you get to the top of the first ridge the climb lessens. We didn’t go to Needle, but camped overnight at Flatiron. Wasn’t crowded at all despite being a long weekend. Will be back to do it again. Also watched an SAR rescue from Needle peak. Please come prepared and don’t attempt anything over your skill level!

I go every year and it always blows my mind. The view never disappoints and the lake is great for a swim to cool off after hiking up. lots of room to explore up around there and lots of great things to see.

Good variety of inclination, gets close to cliff at a few places but the view (when not foggy) is spectacular. You can also see mountain glaciers.
