I've done this trail many times in the summer and winter. Beautiful views along the way and the route is very easy. I wouldn't rank this as moderate at all. I've seen 5 year old children hiking this.

The trails are marked decently but at this point in the year you just need to followed the packed trail.

I'd start being cautious about doing the winter route across the lakes now though. I did it two weeks ago and was a little worried about how thick the ice is at this point. Maybe stick to the routes through the trees (aka the Summer route)

Reasonably easy to follow hard-packed trail with beautiful views of the mountains. The snowshoe trail follows the lake shoreline. Snowshoes were definitely necessary.

My daughter (7), our pup and I backpacked to the tent pads at Lake Helen McKenzie and spent a night. It was heavenly!

This is my fave hike. I do it once a week in the spring to summer end. It’s beautiful! Great for beginners and lots of spots to rest. Bring a bathing suit in the summer hot days. Lots of great swimming opportunities and amazing lunch spots.

Pleasantly surprised with how nice this trail was. Half of the trail is boardwalks and the other half is a regular well maintained trail. Was a 3 hour loop for us with a couple of small stops at the lakes. Had a couple birds come up to us and eat right from our hands. I will be doing this one again for sure

Easy loop, Great Lake to take a cold dip in during the summer. Dogs loved it!

Well maintained trail, several km of boardwalk over rough and boggy areas. Pretty easy hike, took 2 adults just under 3 hours to complete the loop at a relaxed pace.
