Such a gorgeous hike! On your way to the last lake (Stump), be sure to take the side trail down to Cheekye River - there's a beautiful view with a perfect mountain peak in the background.

    For my understanding, dogs are not allowed on the four lakes trail but still, I encountered a lot of dogs running loosely yesterday, even came close to snip at my lunch at Cheekye River. That was quite annoying! Otherwise I enjoyed the trail very much and the Fawn Lake was very beautiful, peace and quiet. The Stump lake had less view and Alice lake was full of people! Highly recommended the trail but do not go there on the long weekend!

      Great park setting and nice big sites. The staff are very unfriendly and are very quick to point out where dogs are not allowed. Park rangers do not seem to be worried about any other campsite etiquite or rules such as speed limits, burning neighbouring trees, or patrolling the sites on foot. What ever happened to park rangers walking around? Why do they need to drive around in vehicles that emit emissions? I have had a ranger quickly point out that dogs were not allowed on the trails while ignoring the fact that they were tracking a bear that was not more than 20' away. 45 seconds after I had received the stern warning about dogs, the rangers chased a bear right across our path. Glad that the priorities are well at hand. Sad to see camping come to this.

        This trail is easy and just perfect for a relaxing walk around the beautiful lakes and woods. My favourite spot was the little rest area at Fawn Lake. It was peaceful and the scenery was gorgeous. I could have stayed there the whole day to soak up the sun.

        We took our time and finished the trail in just under 3 hours. But really why would you want to rush through it?

          We did this trail in a group of four last week. It was pretty easy with great scenery, specially around the Stump lake. There was almost no mud.
          Would definitely do this again later this summer but will consider running the trail.

                  We went to Alice lake today, a sunny day in April and we did the 4lake hike. It was a nice and refreshing stroll through the woods. When we reached the earth lake we took the wrong path and we got out of the trail to a bike trail by mostake. Howevere after 5 min walk there it was a narrow wooden pathway(for bikes) on a swamp full of yellow flowers. one of kind! It is good to get lost sometimes!

                        Just went yesterday with 2 dogs. We followed the four lakes trail and saw all 4 lakes. It was very relaxing and easy. Didn't run into too many people along the way.

                          While obviously based around Alice Lake, this trail actually has a name: "Four Lakes" Trail to reflect the linking of Alice -Edith - Fawn - Stump Lakes in the Alice Lake Provincial Park. I only mention this because there is a great network of trails in Alice Lake PP other than these to explore.

                            This was my idea of a perfect weekend hike - A nice, easy stroll through the woods on a well-marked trail, with nice spots to chill or go for a swim.

                            We really took our time, and so it took us a little less than four hours to get around. It was a hot, sunny weekend so Alice Lake was packed, but the trail was not that busy.

                            If you're looking for a nice relaxing hike to get out in nature, I highly recommend this one.

                              According to the BC Parks website, dogs are permitted on a leash but NOT allowed on the Alice Lake trail, playgrounds, beaches, or picnic areas. By Alice Lake trail, I think this is the area around just Alice Lake and not necessarily on the trail that passes the 4 Lakes.

                              Of course, you should obey all marked signs.

                                I would just like to state that Alice Lake is NOT dog friendly. There are signs everywhere that state that dogs are not allowed. Just a tip!

                                  We left home with the intent on camping at Alice lake... unfortunately it was all full. We ended up camping across the highway at Paradise Valley campsite. It was really nice with lush campsites. We woke up in the morning and went to hike around the Alice lake loop trail. We parked and followed the signs so it took us the furthest way around all the 4 lakes. We stopped at the river and shortly after this we saw a BLACK BEAR! He stopped looked at us and then carried on towards the river. The whole loop took us under 2 hours and was very easy. We did the hike in runners. We then went back to the car and took sandwiches down to Alice lake.
