Star rating does not reflect the hike. We TRIED to do this hike today, but needed a vehicle that is suitable for off road conditions. Pretty frustrating that this is not mentioned anywhere in the description. Not the first time our plans have been derailed due to incomplete information regarding road conditions on getting to a trail head. (Ancient cedars trail had the same challenge).

    No snow on the trail, but a couple of snow patches remaining off the trail. Lovely hike, gorgeous terrain. Took us 1.5 hours to get to the lake, and 1 hour 45 minutes to get back. All in all can be done in 3 hours if you don't stop for photo ops like we did :)

      June 10, 2017: Snow on Callaghan Road was so deep I had to park 5km away from the trailhead (4runner with snow tires). Come back in late August or September to hike this trail without snow, up to 3 feet in some places still. Spikes/snowshoes not required to get to Conflict lake, but definitely an asset as the snow is very soft in many places and the stability of a wider footprint will be appreciated regardless. Saw one set of black/brown bear tracks as well as one pile of bear poop, bring a noise maker and bear spray for sure, keep your head on a swivel. Keep LEFT at the big trail division near the cabin to get to the cabin. Not a very great hike in the snow as you're just following cross-country ski trails. The hike to Ring lake beyond is probably much nicer.

        I did this on May 15th, 2016 and there snow everywhere. We had to park 4km away from the trail head as the snow was so deep.

        The trail has pretty compact snow so it's not too difficult to trek through, however, the 4k walk to the hike was a pain.

        Conflict Lake wasn't that appealing, however, Callaghan Lake was way nicer and it was right at the trail head, lol. Don't bypass it.

          This is a wonderful hike and well worth the trip. Should point out that while a 4 wheel drive with high clearance is recommended, the road in was not as bad as I had anticipated. Drive time from where you leave the paved road to Callaghan Lake was probably about 30 minutes or so, and while there are some tough patches, it wasn't horrific (this may depend on how recently the road has been graded). Looking forward to going next year and getting up to Ring Lake.
