I did this hike in December 2021 and January 2022. I did it a little differently. I started at the deep cove lookout parking lot and walked up the perimeter trail to Goldie lake, it was 1 KM each way up the hill. At goldie lake, followed the trail around the lake and also around flower lake and then back down the perimeter trail. It took about 2-3 hours.

    Trail was muddy in many areas, lots of bugs. The trail itself is always spectacular. They closed all picnic tables there so we had to drive down the road to the provincial park picnic area.

      May I ask what is the conditions for the trails of Goldie Lake and Flowers Lake recently? Any snow or icy along the trail? Thanks.

        A nice and decent walk, but it takes way less than 2 hours for those 3 kms, with minimal elevation change.

        Goldie lake looks pretty and I've been surprised to see so few people on a sunny day of weekend in the summer.

          I did this hike after the Spartan Race this past Saturday. I was just looking for any hike so when I past a trail head at the Deep Cove Lookout point parking lot, I stopped and got going. It took me 1 hour and 50 mins to reach Flower and Goldie Lake and get back at a relatively fast pace. Not too steep; really enoyed the hike although it was a bit wet along the trail when I went. I see a couple pictures of the end view that I did not find on my hike. The view looks gorgeous in the photos and I wish I would've found it but I was relatively short on time so I went a little past the lake to see what was there (didn't look like much) and headed back. Both lakes are quite brown (not very attractive) and there were plenty of bugs along the trail but all aound a nice, shady hike.

            Went on this trail last Sunday. It still has plenty, plenty of snow!!! Also the trail is full of fallen trees that you'll have to jump over or go around to pass. There are muddy portions and the snow is starting to melt so the feet can slip in the snow till the knee.

            You would need good shoes to help you walk in the snow.

            Personally i think the trail is not very well marked. The lakes are covered by snow now. I would wait another month before doing this trail :).

              We went to hike Goldie lake yesterday, but there was still too much snow on the trails to be able to follow them. That said, we had never been to this trail before so someone who is familiar with the trail may have had more success. There were also quite a lot of black flies.

                We've just returned from hiking the Goldie Loop today. Still quite a bit of snow on the ground, and wasn't able to go all the way around, but the Flower Lake Loop was ok.

                All said, a great little jaunt if you have an hour or two.
