We stayed up here in September 2016 with the temperature around -4°C when we arrived late in the evening. It was dark and we'd hiked up the steep forest trail for the past three hours. In the morning we awoke to clear blue skies, the sun not yet above the easterly peaks, ice on the smaller ponds and the lake... More

Very steep hike up to a spectacular glacial lake. It is quite steep, nearly 4000 ft elevation gain in less than 4 miles. Hike is mainly in forest w/o views, until last 1000 ft or so, where it is almost a scramble up steep rock, but views are quite amazing at his point. Lake is spectacularly blue/green and your are...

We are just back from a wonderfull hike to Wedgemount Lake with large smiles on our faces. One of the most beautifull and challenging day hikes I have ever done. Unrelentlessly steep climb for 7km. Hiking poles are very usefull on the way down for those with weaker knees.

This is one of my best hikes of my entire life.... INCREDIBLE. We hiked it on Tues. June 21st, 2016. Conditions were pretty much great. Some snow when you get up very high and are (almost!) to the lake sitting high in the sky at the base of mountains/glaciers. We tried to follow the freshest tracks possible and move SLOW... More

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.
