Conditions Report:

It's Hot But The Views Are Refreshing!

LAKE TRAIL: Take a two-minute walk down to the Beach and find some of the best views of the Three Bears peaks. 

RAIL TRAIL: The trail is in good shape. Enjoy the old railway spikes along the trail.

LAZY LIZARD BIKING TRAIL: The trail is fully open. Let wildlife know you’re around – lots of hoots and hollers! Have fun!

OLD GROWTH TRAIL: This trail is in good shape and is a great hike on hot and rainy days because of its thick canopy.

FIR TRAIL: The trail is in good shape and offers a great canopy for warm days or rainy days.     

SPINEBACK: Use caution where the trail is damaged and follow the flagging tape to access the trail.  Our trail crew will be working on improving that section of the trail. See you out there!  At the first bench you will encounter a lot of Hover flies.  They mimic yellow-jackets but cannot sting.  They hover and like hanging around people.    

GOLDILOCKS LOOP (Via Spineback trail): The trail is still snow covered.  Recommended in August and September.

TAMARACK TRAIL AND THE VIEWPOINT: The trail is in good shape.  Snap a photo at its “iconic photo spot #10”, tag @islandlakelodge in your post on Instagram & show your Bear Bistro server to receive a $27 Burger + Beer Deal!  

BALDY LOOP: We recommend starting this hike using the trailhead at the bottom of the Red Eagle Lodge.  The trail is in good shape.

BIG WHITE PEAK ROUTE: Adventure seekers, there is no trail.  You will have to navigate your way through rock and snow patches to find your way up to the summit from the Spineback trail.    

CABIN ROUTE (Via OLD GROWTH TRAIL)LIZARD LAKE ROUTE (Via RAIL TRAIL and Via GORBY) and HEIKO’S TRAIL:  Expect some snow patches and fallen trees.
