The hike and lake looked amazing but unfortunately we couldn’t get there due to the terrible road conditions. An off-road/high-clearance vehicle is an absolute must - not just recommended - unless you want to ruin your undercarriage. We got half up the road and ended up having to turn around which was tricky. Ended up scratching the paint on our new Ford Escape on the prickly bushes when turning around. Do not attempt to go here without an off-road vehicle. There really should be signs at the initial lake sign to notify of the road conditions/vehicle access requirements, as well as a large secondary sign past the golf course incase someone missed the first sign.

This is not an easy hike so I wouldn't take little children or anyone who can't physically handle uneven footing. We hiked through bush and over several little streams. Someone has built some footbridges so you wont get your feet wet unless you want to. We also hiked over a rocky section that is inhabited by marmots. When we reached the little glacial lake, we went for a paddle in the canoe someone hauled up behind a skidoo one winter. Pretty cool.😎 We took the wrong road on our first attempt so make sure when you come to a spot in the road where it splits 3 ways, take the middle road! The signage could be improved. The hike took us about an hour to go up to the lake and half that coming down. It's a great activity to do with teens. This is an amazing little piece of paradise that makes me happy to be a Canadian.

Hiked to Gorman Lake on the 6/10/17. If you’re looking for a detailed guide to the trail head visit goldenhikes.ca As per previous reviewers I can confirm that the road leading up to the beginning of the trail is quite rough and better suited to 4x4 vehicles. We went up in a Nissan Murano and it was just fine. The trail is easily spotted and guides you through the forest. Once you get to the bolder field it gets a bit more tricky. There was a lot of snow up there already and finding the trail wasn’t easy. We did sink in knee deep on numerous occasions and nearly gave up! So glad we didn’t. The lake is stunning, a beautiful, wild little hideaway. We would have loved to spend some time there but with the freezing cold and changing weather conditions (and the dreaded, snow covered bolder field on the return journey) we thought it best to have a quick lunch, snap a few panoramic and head back. All in all it took us just over 3 hours plus 1.5 for the drive up. A must do experience!
