I have to admit, I went hiking there quite a few years ago. It still ranks as the most beautiful, and varied terrain area I have ever hiked in. Picturesque beyond belief. Beautiful mountain peaks, and geological formations that defy imagination. Imagine sitting on a mountain ledge high above the lake eating your lunch. We stayed in a cabin and... More

Third Thanksgiving (Canadian, so in October) in a row. Amazing hiking, and the Lodge is charming. The food was excellent. There is a fee to stay at lodge and a fee to camp in the Park. In theory, one could walk up for free, but it takes about 7 hours, so I recommend getting a ride from the Lodge people.... More

This provincial park is less accessible, thus more rewarding for those who visit. Unless you go to the private lodge (Cathedral Lakes Lodge) or pay for a ride up to the lakes in their jeep (very rough road not accessible to the public) you are looking at a 6-7 hour hike uphill (800 m elevation gain) from the Lakeview trail...

We stayed at the Lodge for a long weekend - we have previously camped up there and both are good alternatives. However, seriously consider the Lodge's ride up and back - it is a long steep hike and you should save your energy to get to the mountain tops. The lakes are lovely at any time and in any weather....

The Lodge is rustic but comfortable. The staff are very helpful. And the food was very good though we'd have liked more vegetable options. That said, the cook was accommodated my gluten-free diet. The hiking was spectacular but not for beginners. A lot of the best trails (amazing views) are steep vertical climbs followed by steep ascents. The best views... More

No out of shape hikers for the climb up from the base camp up to the Lodge on the LAKEVIEW TRAILHEAD to Quiniscoe Lake !!! Hardcore 10 mile steep vertical of about 4,000+ feet. Great hike! The lodge sits in a spectacular setting and once settled in you can have a great meal and some local spirits. We did a... More

My husband and I stayed at the Lodge in the oldest cabin Herb Clark which has a comfortable queen size bed. The food served in the Lodge is prepared by an outstanding talented chef. It is both nutritious and delicious. 4 course dinners each day with not your standard three items but 6 to 8. Home made cakes and pies,... More

A nice day hike to the top of the mountains results in amazing views to the south.

Some of the trees are more than 800 years old and covered in moss. I didn't know there were rainforests in Canada until I went here. There is a plaque there explaining the area and campgrounds further down the road.
