Great trail - but I would say it’s a difficult climb - due to distance and variation in terrain- nice glaciar cold lake at the top. Pretty busy on the weekend.

Very well maintained trail. Felt like a steady incline for most of the hike. Had very cloudy and rainy weather for most of the trip.

Made it to landslide lake however couldn’t make it to iceberg lake due to the vertical gravel climb at the end, people before us tried to get up and slipped, one guy hurt his leg pretty bad, ouch! There is a lot of uphill along the trail and it reminds me of a harder version ripple rock (tree roots, loose rocks etc). We made a day trip out of it, took almost 11 hours. The views were not that great until the last hour or so as there is a lot of trees blocking anything. View at the top was amazing but I would say not worth 5 hours of grueling hiking. I would also go so far to rate this as difficult and not moderate due to the length and difficulty (canyon view and ripple rock are rated as moderate and are by far much easier). Glad I made it to the end, but won’t do this one again.

Great trail- very beautiful, mostly shaded, well maintained. so many waterfalls and massive trees, the trail is nothing short of amazing. the last 1km was definitely the most difficult. there were lots of bugs so bug spray/nets are recommended. unfortunately we weren't able to make it up to berg lake due to aggressive wasps nests. we heard multiple stories of people and dogs being stung and didnt think it was worth the risk. highly recommend this hike overall!

Great trail! Definitely not for kids, can be quite technical in a lot of parts but pretty well maintained trail. Single file as well. Recommended for sure!

I did this a few years ago. Easy access, well maintained trail. Saw kids on the trail so it wasn’t to difficult. There are also camping spots along the way. Beautiful views and well worth it!

Landslide Lake and Iceberg Lake are gorgeous and make every minute of the hike worth it. Most people stop at Landslide Lake, but make sure you find the trail through the alder around the edge of the lake up to Iceberg Lake- turquoise waters, glaciers, ice caves, and towering mountains. Unreal hike!

It was snowy and a cold over night camp but overall incredible experience! The trail is hard to see as it is under snow after the 9 KM camping spot, but a locked food storage was a treat!
Bring warm gear of you plan on camping!
