Hard Hike

I am just a novice hiker so this was quite tough for me... but it is absolutely beautiful!!!It took me longer to come down than go up!! If you have poles take them.

An honest days hiking for seasoned hikers, the two of us (25M and 25F) enjoyed the hike, great with nice weather if you're well prepared. 2h40m from car to lake and 2h10m back down. A good 2h exploring up at the lake, including accessing the glacier.

This is one of the steepest hikes I have ever done... 4000' in 4.4 miles (1220 meters in 7km). But it was worth every step.

this picture says it all. The entire area in Garibaldi Park is awesome, but not for a day hike . you need some hiking experience and gear as well as extra clothes to keep warm as temps change or a storm blows through. the hikes are worth it and make sure to bring plenty of food and water. Also drive... More

I really enjoyed this hike, nature there is beautiful. Went sooner so it was nicely chilly under the trees instead of hot summer weather everywhere else. Lake is amazing, there are spectacular views and no crowds because hike is not suitable for kids.

Very pretty lake and not too busy in the summer. Well worth the effort of getting there. One of my favorite hikes in the area.

The climb up to the lake is a hard steep climb not for beginners. Elevations to hike are 1200 mm climbs up 4 km. the climb is long and hard. Make sure you have supplies with you and water. The climb down is hard on some peoples knees. There is climbing in winter here as we were told. The lake... More

I read the other reviews and it is true that it can be tough depending on how often you hike with its 1200 m elevation in 4 km up. But we did it in May and there was quite a lot of snow on the last km with ice-snow patches for another 500 m. Even though the lake was frozen,... More

Everyone at work raves about this hike. I think partially because it's close to Whistler. The climb up is long & hard with not much to look at - all tree enclosed - no views. The way down is very tough on the knees. The lake - incredible! Reaching the top is like entering a whole different world. On a... More

What a wonderful place. The nerd in me felt like I was strolling into mythical Rivendell when I crested the plateau that leads to the lake; oh wait that just the Mountaineering Club Hut. The hike is relentlessly uphill and so the short 7km distance is deceptive as you will gain more than 1200m (3900ft). That said its comfortable, if... More
