Great easy hike. One of the biggest lakes I have hiked to. It is beautiful and serene. There is camping here but you have to schedule that with some organization for a pass. Easy for even a novice hiker

We drove for 30 minutes at 15km/h on a gravel road before reaching the parking lot and start of the hiking trail. The trail takes approximately 4 hours (2h + 2h), but it is fairly easy, accessible to families with kids, and totally worth it....More

our group of 6 hiked this easy, but long trail. The terrain changed from sunny meadows, to woodsy forest, to lakeside and riverside views. Plan for a full 5 hours!

Super easy hike/walk for those who want amazing views but don't have to work hard for it. Bring some lunch and eat at the end of the trail by the beach area.

This is an easy, flat hike with high ROI. That's Return on Investment, since it's pretty much completely flat and you get to see the beautiful river and Cheakamus Lake fairly quickly in. You can hike a little or a lot, depending on how you're...More

This is an easy walk through a slightly sinister forest (think Lord of the Rings) to an attractive lake. Not the best walk since the view is obstructed by trees, but nevertheless worth doing. The drive up requires mentioning: easy for those who are experienced...More

The road heading up to the trail is dirt and is a little rough. It wasn't so bad that we were able to get our car up the road. The trail itself was in rough shape given the winter it has seen. Several trees were...More

As some have mentioned, the road up to the car park is not bad, we went up at the end of October, still no snow on the ground with a rather small hire car and made it up just fine. The walk to the lake...More

First, the road to the parking lot isn't as bad as some have reported. I got up there in a Nissan Sentra no problem, just dodge the bigger potholes and take it slow on the slightly rougher sections. The hike was a mostly easy/moderate one...More

Not really. I wouldn't advise a stroller on any unpaved path. I would suggest putting your child in a front pack or backpack (depending on age) and having a great time that way!
