Smokey from the BC forest fires when we went, it was still beautiful up there, but the surrounding mountains were a bit hazy. The hike itself was great, until the last two kilometers, which were agonizingly slow, vertical, and without an end in sight. Every crest lead to another, but finally the lake came into view. We had a round of drinks but we were all too tired to really enjoy the lake before heading back to the campsite. Still, what a beautiful lake this one is. Glad I saw it.

Probably one of a few secluded areas to go camp in. There is limited camping ground but one spot, which we were fortunate enough to have, has a great set up with tables and everything. Recommend to hike and camp up there.

Wonderful hike even in early spring conditions not accessible from quarry road unless you want to hike over Burke ridge trail. Only access is via canoe/kayak from east side of Pitt river into widgeon campground.
