Did this trail yesterday (September 15, 2020). The first 4km are an extreme incline. Once it flattens out, you walk through a beautiful forest. BRING BEAR SPRAY!! The only other people we ran into on the trail were leaving quickly, as they had just spotted a grizzly 1km up on the trail. We had to turn back around as the grizzly was staying around the trail - made it about 7km before turning around.

I recorded 16K from the Cul de Sac, to the lake and back. Uphill most of the way, some portions are flat, great to catch your breath. The views and the lake are totally worth it. The very last part is mostly climbing and scrambling through a rocky area, I found it a bit tough, but totally doable. Not too many people all along the trail.

The trail was clearly marked and very well kept. There were minimal bugs out this time of year but wildfires from the US created a lot of smoke. I loved watching the landscape change from forest to meadows to the Alpine glacier. Highly recommend this hike!

I tracked about 16km and 900m elevation from the parking area. Arrived about 7:30am, saw less than 10 people on the way up. On the way back about 11am-2pm, 100+ people were on the trail. Pretty steady incline most of the way through the forest with some flat areas. The trail is well worn in but there are a few branches and junctions with vague markers, so know where you're going. Ends with a short climb, not sketchy. Lots of wood bridges and other human placed things. Most gloriously placed outhouse about 3/4 up. No reason for it to be there, as there's no nearby campground or anything. It just stands proud on top of its hill and it's almost worth the trek just to see it. Could use some TP rolls if anybody is kind enough to leave some. 1.5L of water was enough for me, but there are many good water sources all the way up. Saw a grizzly about 1km from the lake, crossing the trail. Definitely has no fear of humans whatsoever. Bear bells do nothing, possibly even attracting them as it followed and came within about 30m of a guy wearing a bear bell. Please keep an eye out.

Great trail but the markers can be a little bit confusing. Tons of bugs until you start getting to the scramble. Views from the waterfall, forest, and meadows were amazing.

This trail is definitely not 13.9 km...more like 19 kms! We took the lower 19 mile creek trail and then the upper Creek Trail all the way to iceberg Lake. There are some challenging parts along the way, and the last kilometer is a climb up rocks to get to the actual lake. This trail offers a bit of everything: beautiful scenery, lots of different terrain, waterfalls, meadow, fresh drinking water (I had my filter with me) and tons of bugs! Mosquitoes galore. And few us even got stung along the way by hornets and bees. Going to spend the day icing all the bites and nursing my swollen ankle thanks to the stings. And here, I was worried about encountering a bear...go figure. I would not recommend this hike to beginners!

Beautiful trail, but definitely longer than 13.7 Also don’t forget to pack tons of bug spray. We were eaten alive! Last part is all rock climbing. Overall really good experience.

Super impressed by how well maintained this trail is! Some steep and muddy areas but nothing crazy. The section up to the lake is slippery in section with loose gravel (especially going down). We were able to do this trip in 5 hours with lunch at the lake. Beautiful views at the top!

Started around 10am. Fairly busy. Had to park quite far down the road. Took us about 6 hours round trip including stopping for lunch at the lake. Bugs weren’t too bad. The only outhouse is near the meadows.

HikingGreat!

Beautiful trail, but not the right time to do it. The 'lake' is about 80% dried up this late in the season. Pond would be more accurate. Epic craigs and a nice waterfall, but the pond was underwhelming and the glacier mostly melted. No bugs. Very busy with people; 100+ at the lake. Luckily it's spread out and didn't feel too busy, but many large group out and about. Easy trail overall. I think in early summer when the ice is still melting and the lake it full of water and icebergs it would be quite a sight. For now, find something else.

Probably the best maintained trail I’ve seen. Breathtaking views all around. Took a wrong turn up top and ended up doing skywalk which was also nice.
