Saturday morn left trailhead at 8, returned by 330. Trace snow (not for long) until first camp then hit moderate out to the Lake. Decent amount of downfall, enough to confuse if you are not familiar with the trail. Great to see Foster/Rambler wearing new faces. Fantastic hike.

We hiked the trail all in one day on Oct 24, starting as soon as there was enough light. Temperatures were around -5 degrees, there was some snow on the trail but it didn't pose any issues until we got near the top, where the waterfall runs beside the rock face: Due to the spray and freezing temperatures the entire rock face was black ice. From here to the top was very tricky, we managed it wearing spikes, other hikers turned around. Due to the limited daylight hours we just had time to return to the trailhead before dark , so no chance to go to Burg lake this time of year unless you camp or are much faster than us (and we're reasonably fast... ). The views of the lake and surrounding mountains are well worth it, just make sure you're prepared for a very long hike in the cold!

This defines hiking :) A fairly straight forward hike through mud, roots, streams, etc until you pass the second campsite. From there the trail gets a bit tougher right up until the lake. Safely encountered an adult black bear about .5km before the lake.

Great hike! Trail was easy to follow and well marked. Trail was a bit muddy and the roots were slippery from the rain the day before, but no problems as long as you are careful. The lake was a beautiful colour and the mountains had a light dusting of snow. Took 6 hours round trip.

Trail was washed out in a few spots but otherwise marked well. Lake was pretty scenic and there are a couple of nice waterfalls along the way

Did this on my own as my very first backpacking hike with one overnight stay at the second camp. Totally doable. Started on Friday morning and came back Saturday evening. Which was perfect because both camps and trails became pretty busy on Saturday. Unfortunately going from the camp to Landslide Lake I took a wrong turn on the rocks at the waterfall and was hiking for quite a while in the wrong direction. Watch out for the BLUE ribbons, not the red ones... Berg Lake is just beautiful and has amazing views on Landslide Lake, as well. It’s totally worth the extra 70-80 minutes return.

Did this one as a day hike and I’m glad I did because the camp sites were nothing special. The trail is pretty gradual and doesn’t get steep until the last little bit. Took me 7 hrs with breaks and pictures. The lake is lovely!

I got stung by a wasp, so please be careful! The trail is absolutely amazing, not very difficult and definitely the sting.

HikingGreat!

Did this as a day hike yesterday! Great trail however it’s more like 27k round trip (up to the lake). Trail is well marked until the last 1.5km up to the lake. Only a couple of muddy spots (but very easy to get around them). I read and saw signs for ground wasps but we only saw one nest and had no issues.

The start of the hike was easy and mostly flat. Camp 1 is around 7.5km (I think). From camp 1 to camp 2 the hike becomes more challenging, lots of mud and steep sections. The All Trail app said 14.8km where the Nike app said 10km to camp 2. Total 3 hours from trail head to camp 2. Nice quiet campsites with a few riverside spots. No mosquitos was a nice surprise. Next day we hiked from Camp 2 to Landslide Lake around 2.7km/45mins easy gradual incline, then we headed straight up to Foster/Berg Lake around 2km/45mins along the left side of Landslide Lake. The trail is very overgrown with plenty of obstacles to slow your pace down, definitely worth it once you arrive. Ended the day with swimming and relaxing at Landslide Lake. The lake was very busy with a lot of people by 3pm. Camp 2 was full by the time we arrived back around 6pm. Great trail, not much to see during the hike but worth it once you arrive at the destination.

Fairly easy trail. Hardly notice the elevation gain. Slippery on roots in wet sections, watch your footing. Did this in a day hike and went out further to Berg Lake. The trail from Landslide to Berg is unmaintained but only took another 45mins. Nice for a refreshing dip.
