3 gorgeous lakes and a waterfall on the way to the peak. Unfortunately I wasn't able to make it all the way to the summit due to the snow! I was prepared for mud and wet fall conditions but not straight up winter snow which made this scrambling really slow. 2 hours to the first lake through spots of mud often up to the ankles.

Great trail, more people knew about it and were prepared for the slog than we thought. A really good overnight hike. Lakes are stunning.

This is an absolutely unreal hike! Every part of the trail is beautiful and interesting. We didn’t go all the way to Tricouni Peak, as we were limited by time, but the 3 lakes alone are worth the trip. The hike details listed above are somewhat misleading, because they include the High Falls Creek trail (which starts on the Squamish Valley Rd). You can actually drive almost all the way to the trailhead, which reduces the distance and elevation gain by about half. The directions in “103 Hikes” say that you need to turn left at the 8km mark on Branch 250, but we couldn’t see any turns. Just follow the road. At about 9 km when it crosses a stream, the road is washed out and there is an X. We didn’t have any trouble getting to this point in our RAV4. Most people seem to park here. Follow the road, it will fork, stay right (marked by flagging tape at the time of writing). The road descends, then starts up again. Ignore the logging road turn off to the right and continue up. The trailhead starts at a landing where those brave enough (and with high clearance 4x4 vehicles) parked. The trail is super muddy! Someone said “sink up to your quads mud”, but we found it more like “sink up to your ankles/shins mud” at the time of writing. Gaiters are a big plus, as are hiking poles. The brush is also a bit dense on the first part of the trail, so be prepared for that. The first lake you come to is Kathryn Lake, with a tiny island. Keep following the trail to the second lake. Turn left, cross over the creek, and follow the trail to the boulder field next to the waterfall. The trail isn’t super well marked at this point, but you’re basically hiking straight up on the right side of the waterfall. It’s a steep climb. Then you come to Seagram Lake. We saw more people on the trail than expected (especially considering the drive), but it wasn’t busy by any means. We took our time hiking up and had a nap at the lake; took about 8 hrs round trip. 10/10 would definitely return.

My favourite trail / scramble in the Sea to Sky corridor (I’ve done almost all of them...) the first section of this trail is accessed via a logging road that is reasonably maintained; even low clearance vehicles will shorten the route by several km’s. To get all the way to the trailhead you will need a medium clearance (doesn’t need to be after market) 4x4 vehicle. Two options for the trail, one crosses a washed out bridge to the left then through a boulder field before crossing back over the creek. Staying to the right out of the parking lot means mud. A lot of mud. Potential to sink up to your quads kind of mud. Just embrace it. There’s a series of lakes and waterfalls with a class 3 / 4 scramble at the top. Amazing summit views. Usually a few people on the trail but never seen more than 10 - 15 people in a day.
