Lindeman & Greendrop Lakes


It turned out to be a great day for a hike in Chilliwack Lake Provincial Park. This was my first hike in boulder fields and there are many here. It makes for very interesting traversing and scenery.  The lakes were beautiful under the morning sun, especially Lindeman Lake, with its green colour. Don’t be fooled by the short distance and small elevation gain, which is similar to the Buntzen Lake loop. This hike took our group of 4, just under 6 hours. We had short stops, but traversing the boulder fields slows you down. The drive out to the trailhead is a long drive from Coquitlam (120 km and 1.5 hours). We had a slight sprinkle of rain at Greendrop Lake and we heard some thunder in the distance, but overall, it was a great success. You should be confident in jumping rock to rock on the boulder fields and over one small stream.

The stats:

Distance: 11.2 km (return)
Low point: 624 m
High point: 964 m
Elevation gain: 340 m
Total Elevation gain: 606 m
Trailhead: 49° 05’ 56.2” by  121° 27’ 30.3” (Google Map)

Before heading out on your hike, make sure you are well prepared. This means, having the TEN ESSENTIALS. It is also important to leave a trip plan (route details and estimated return time) with someone you trust.

Bring your smartphone, fully charged and put it in airplane mode while hiking. I always bring back-up battery packs for extra piece of mind. It is highly recommended that you bring a GPS device; I use my smartphone with a GPS app (Backcountry Navigator). The GPS will work in airplane mode. Learn how to use it before your hike.

For anyone new to hiking, there is a rule to which hikers follow; it is called “Leave No Trace” or LNT. The concept is generally to pack out what you pack in and respect nature, so all future visitors can enjoy what you have enjoyed.
