Completed June 16th. Snow in some areas but won't slow you down. Passable all the way around.

My partner and I completed first the trail up to Helen-Mckenzie lake as we were told the trail to Kwai lake was not yet accessible due to snow. However, we met some fellow hikers who advised it is and came back the following day to complete the loop around Kwai lake. There was snow past Helen-Mckenzie lake but we found it manageable without crampons. Stunning views of lakes, snow capped mountains and tiny waterfalls where the melting snow is gushing down. Highly recommended. My Strava recorded 17.52km and we completed it in just under 6 hours inclusive of a couple of breaks and a 30 min lunch stop.

Fantastic! Picked this hike because we got an Airbnb at Mount Washington and it was close by. Got really lucky because this was beautiful! Not too challenging though and absolutely breathtaking. Got to come back and see the area around it someday. The ridge above Moat Lake is beckoning.

Great hike during the summer months, still quite a bit of snow when I went (mid June) so that's something to be mindful of. I imagine once the weather is hot for longer the snow will melt.

Awsome loop, perfect for trail running. We started at the parking slot and went on the right trail for the loop. We prolong the loop at lake kwai and went to the canyon lookout (totally worthy the additional km). It's a out and back trail with beautyfull landscape and amazing view at the lookout. We finished the loop from lake kwai. Distance: 20 k / time: 3.00 h in a easy running pace.
