  • We stayed two nights at the Cathedral Lakes Lodge. We rode up to the lodge in the 1962 Mercedes unimog - a dusty, bumpy ride - an experience not to be missed. The first day we hiked the Diamond Trail....  more »

  • First time in the park, blown away by its beauty and peacefulness. The best maintained, marked, and well-signed hiking trails in BC! We stayed at the lodge but the campsites looked lovely and well spa...  more »

  • My wife and I visited Cathedral lakes with a couple friends mid August. The weather was beautiful (chilly at night though). We hiked the Rim trail on one day, and a day at ladyslipper lake for fishing. Both days were awesome. Rim trail has a lot of unique rock features and great views of the different lakes. Fishing ladyslipper was a blast, we caught wild mountain rainbow trout in the 12-18inch range, beautiful fish. Highly recommend 3-4 nights to try a few different activities.
  • Not sure how long this place will exist. With something like 80% of the trees dead from beetles and larvæ, the desert setting and a wilful ignorance of physics by all those who discarded cigarettes around the camp… enjoy it whilst you can. The scenery is drop dead gorgeous and varied, hikes range from simple to strenuous and you get the best trimmings of car camping without the yobs with subwoofers.
  • Hike the rim trail for truly spectacular views of mountains, cliffs, unusual rock formations, alpine lakes and meadows. Meet the occasional mountain goat. Top up your water bottle from snowpacks. Read up on hiking safety, and you need to be somewhat fit (not super fit). It's exhilarating and well worth the effort to get there.
  • The terrain is so unique here. The basalt formations are intriguing and at the top of the rim trail reminds me of being in the crater at Haleakala in Maui. I've always seen goats when hiking the rim trail and the sights are unbelievable. In Fall, the larch turning yellow preparing to drop their needles is quite a sight.
  • Just an awesome experience for me. Took the Unimog from Base Camp to the Main Lodge at Quiniscoe Lake. Then hiked the Diamond Trail. Another couple in our group scrambled up the steep trail to the ridge. What a fantastic gem in the BC Park system.
