This hike is totally worth it. Even though it’s far from Vancouver, the views are breathtaking. The middle lake is the most beautiful of them, but the glacier in the upper lake is also worth the climb.

We stopped off here and had a quick walk into the first lake as we didn't have much time. Walk in very easy but with all these places it was very busy even at 8 am.

A decent hike. Went with my family including my toddler. The first lake is stroller accessible. I managed to make it about halfway to the second lake with the stroller (not a simple task) before abandoning the stroller in the woods to continue the ascent...More

The lakes in this park were all incredibly beautiful and the waterfall was great too. The climb up was challenging as we are unfit and it involved a lot of consistent uphill. Worth it for the views though! We arrived in the car park at...More

A lovely lake that is getting much more popular and crowded to visit in summertime. The hike is not too difficult and it is still worth the trouble of finding parking at times when park gets busy.

The path to the second and third lake will likely be snow covered in April. First lake may be easy to access but June would be a better month.

No public transport but there’s a car rental company in the village (I think it’s Avis). Late Oct is a toss-up depending on how much snow falls. Good luck and have fun! Dress warm!
