This relatively low-effort, high reward hike into alpine lakes is a great place to bring the paddle boards to relax on a hot day!

Description

The trail to Semaphore Lakes is a moderate 5.8 km out-and-back trail near Pemberton, British Columbia.

The trailhead is accessible through Hurley Fork past the 14 km mark.

Most of the trail is through dense forest with with rocks, roots, and mud, so poles and waterproof boots are recommended.

The alpine lakes are beautiful & refreshing in the summer heat, and offer a great opportunity to go paddle boarding in alpine lakes! Great spot to day-trip, or overnight from June to October.

Dogs: YES, this is a dog friendly trail! Keep in mind the conservancy above the lakes if pushing towards Train Peak/Glacier is NOT dog friendly.

NOTE: Bears are common in this area.
