It was rocky, steep and narrow at times but a fun trail with great views. The lake at the end is breathtaking and there are a lot of rocks around it to sit and enjoy the view on. I would recommend!

Wonderful hike! Get an early start though.

View is amazing. This was the first somewhat difficult trail I did, and I can't wait to go back one day. The lake at the end of the trail was worth every second!

Beautiful hike! Opted Outside with friends on Black Friday, so traffic was very high, but still thinned out towards the top. Chilly trek in the winter months, and poles are definitely a must if the trail is well-packed with snow or starting to ice over. Kept a few slips from turning into full-on falls on the way down. Inspiring views along the way and at the end!

Hiked this on 15Nov16 on a beautiful sunny day. Along the way you have some great views, and at the lake the view is spectacular. The trail is generally easy to follow, although when you reach the boulder field surrounding the lake it's not obvious where it goes. Take a little side trip to see Dream Lake, where you have a great view of Hallett Peak and the Tyndall Glacier rising above the lake.

Nice hike to a couple of lower lakes and then up to Haiyaha. Nymph lake is not far from the trailhead and then you can go to Dream Lake which is really nice and backtrack about .2 miles to the junction to Haiyaha. The trail is mostly uphill fairly steep and steady but not hard. At the lake you have to scramble over boulders so that makes it a bit tricky. I did a loop and came back via Alberta Falls. Very few people on the trail today.

Really liked this lake, it's surrounded by tall mountains. The lake features what's thought to be the oldest tree in park on the rocks near lake. Climbed pretty intense after Dream lake but wasn't too bad and evened out in some spots.

Beautiful views all along the way to Lake Haiyaha. There were also other smaller lake to see along the way that were just as pretty. The last 0.25 miles before reaching Lake Haiyaha were pretty rocky and slick from the snow so just hike with caution. The views were totally worth it!
