Description

Semaphore Lakes is one of the classic day hikes near Pemberton and is loaded with big mountain views and a series of serene alpine lakes.

Shorter than some of the other hikes in the region, it's a perfect way to explore the beautiful backcountry without a full-day commitment.

You'll enjoy some forested sections and alpine terrain, and the trail is considered family-friendly by most standards, though maybe not for younger children.

Bear sightings are common in the area, so plan to travel in groups and carry bear spray.

Leashed dogs are also allowed to join for this hike.

As the trail follows a creek, expect muddy conditions through the spring and summer months. Source: [10adventures.com](https://www.10adventures.com/hikes/pemberton/semaphore-lakes-trail/)
