We really enjoyed this hike on Tues 24th March. From scrambling up the side of the highway at the beginning - forest walk up - walking up the old logging track - finding our way through fallen trees and plenty of snow. The lake was completely frozen over. A metre of snow for the last 30mins up. Be prepared for the cold we were quite frozen coming down. Got up in hiking boots but were covered in snow / water.

Great trail! It has quite a bit of snow on the top still, but view point was definitely worth it. Was able to hike to the top just in hiking boots.

We hiked the trail today, March 04.2020. If you go right now, you need sturdy hiking boots. Lots of water running across the trail, two "creek crossings"; the fallen trees you walk over are extremely slippery. on your way to the peak / lake, you will encounter right now lots of icy patches. 30 cm deep snow at the peak; snow is frozen. Trail is only difficult right now due to ice and snow. in our opinion this trail should be rated "moderate".

Parts of the trail are flooded with fallen trees. Just over 2 hours to the lake, then things got really slow as the snow was melting and deep. Postholing up to my thighs around the lake and to the viewpoint (hard to follow the trail unless you have been here before)

Just left the trail. No snow, little muddy, very windy by the lake. Trees cracking a lot. Cold up there. Level moderate high. Nice lookouts along the way. Lake is bigger than I thought.

Little rocky in the beginning, then quite easy trail with some Service Road. View point was amazing, around the lake without swimming due to cold morning weather. Night has been below 0 celsius causing little frost on the ground. would not rate as hard all in all, and defo recommend for a hike! took us about 4.5 h return with lunch break.

Beginning of trail is well marked but missed a marker about 200 meters in and seemed to be off trail by being above the trail. Could use a few more markers but otherwise a great hike with amazing views

Not very exciting.. nice lake at the end for a swim on a warm day. And the viewpoint at the end is beautiful. The hike getting there would be nicer if half of it wasn’t on a forest service road. Overall, worth doing if you want to stay close to Vancouver and only have a few hours to spare.
