This is a great trail for the family. There are a few difficult spots but the overall hike is not too challenging and the views at the lake are well worth the effort.

Read all of the reviews so we got an early start. Parking was not that clear, but make sure you drive all the way to the trailhead. There is only very limited parking! Parking at the school down the road was prohibited when we were there. The trail is moderate, at bit trying because of the elevation. The other benefit of going early, besides the parking, is that there was hardly a soul on the trail, but that changed as we returned and passed quite a few hikers.

This is an awesome hike. The lake is beautiful. Take a fishing pole. I will next time. Take a backpack with water and snacks. It is not an easy hike so avoid if not in reasonable shape. The lake is worth the effort. Almost seven miles roundtrip from BC village.

This was a nice hike but make no mistake, it is a hike and not a casual walk. We went this last Saturday when the lift opened at 10. We saw only about 6 people on the way up, which was surprising since it is supposed to be a well-traveled trail. But once we got to the top there were about 20 people. It really wasn’t bad considering it was a Saturday and we didn’t go until mid-morning. Three of us went—two of us over 55 years old and one teenager. The teen had no problems nor did my husband (who runs 3+ miles every day). I, on the other hand, only had a problem about the last mile coming back. We did Royal Elk trail in and out. Coming back was a gradual climb and I am out of shape. Really not bad that I only had difficulty the last mile since I haven’t been to the gym in 2 years. Plus, I am from Texas so the altitude affected me. It is a beautiful hike and the lake is spectacular! Well worth the exhaustion on that last mile. We hung out at the lake for about 30 minutes and ate lunch, but had to quickly gather our belongings because of the sudden rain. We did not take our rain coats b/c it did not look like it was going to rain when we left the village. Big mistake that we know better than to make. Take the rain coat no matter what! We took the lift up and down. Just make sure you get back by 4:30 if you plan on taking the lift back down. It was not too hot at this time. I recommend hiking boots and poles because of all the rocks, but saw lots of people in just tennis shoes.

Loved it!! Go early as it gets warm. Please note 1/2 way up ( about a mile from the lake) there is a slight left turn over a bridge, if you miss it you’ll come to a wide fast stream to cross, so go back & find the turn.
