Excellent hike to Lindeman. If you carry on to Green Drop be prepared to traverse serval rock slides. The rocks are huge and there is no trail across them so be cautious. We hiked in Sept. The water level in Green Drop was way down which left a lot of the shoreline exposed and not too nice to look at

    My boyfriend and I did this hike yesterday, and it quickly became our favourite hike to date. The trail is really interesting and we really enjoyed the rocky section in the first half. Even though it was raining when we got to the lake the trail was completely covered and dry. We started at 3:30pm and were back at the car by 6pm, spending a while at the top.

    Warning: It is quite dusty in the steep section and there is a part where there is little to hold on to - we saw two people wipe out while we were heading up and then I did the same on the way down. My boyfriend had better grip on his shoes and was fine just being careful.

    The lake itself was gorgeous and definitely worth the climb. It was too cold to swim but nice to dip your toes in.

      Wanted to post my concern for the litterbugs that strewn their empty beer cans and garbage on the beachfront at Lindeman lake. Also saw a fire ring nearby the area where fire is currently prohibited! Come on people - if you can't respect the beauty of nature then stay home and live in your own filth. Let's also do our part and pick up and pack out any garbage you may run into. This place is beautiful so let's keep it that way :-)

        This was a fun hike for my friend and I to do, though we were definitely expecting more of a challenge (and hoping for more of one). We found it to be a pretty easy hike. The lake is absolutely gorgeous, though breathtakingly cold. I wouldn't recommend going here with the intention of a nice swimming day at the lake, regardless of how hot it is outside. Definitely worth the trip up to see the beautiful lake, though! Lots of bugs - bring spray!

          Hi! Taking my 12 yr old daughter on her first overnight hike next weekend - do we just hike up to Lindeman and hope to find a camping spot? Is it quite busy? TIA!

            Amazing hike I do every year with my family and our dog. It takes us an hour and a half to make it to the main point of the lake and the same time back, so a loop of 3 hours. A few challenging up hill areas and gets a bit tiring but totally worth it for the gorgeous view of the lake. Many people do jump in an swim but the waters fairly cold.

              Hike this every year and every year I get the same wow moment. A good workout and what better way to end it than to see such marvelous creation. Another thing I love about this hike is the trail itself. It looks like your in the middle of nowhere....but the trail is marked so you won't get lost.

                Lindeman is a beautiful little hike. Offers a good challenge as it climbs, and so breakthtakingly beautiful when you get to the lake . Have always wanted to go on to green drop, so today we did it. Not worth the hike. Climbing over boulders for at least half of the 2 hour recommened time to reach the lake. Views not so spectaculiar once there- more private yes. I will give it that.

                  Arrived around 9:00 am to a 1/4 full parking lot on a beautiful sunny warm brisk morning. Start of trail easy and clear then immediately you start to climb on a steep grade with a few switchbacks, elevation gain about 700 ft in less than 1/2 km. The rest of hike to Lindeman lake is pleasant with creek beside you to keep company and help cool off. Arrived at lake in about 40 minutes- really beautiful cobalt blue colour welcomes you to take a dip - a bit too cold that early for my liking. Camping sites were almost full, continued following trail along beach front and headed to Greendrop Lake.

                  The next 4kms needs your full attention. Crossed about 6-7 boulder fields all ranging in different sizes, just follow markings (flags & ribbons) and boot paths along boulders and you'll be fine. I did notice a few hikers that lost the trail and were wondering further up the boulder fields and looking a bit scared and flustered. This section of hike to Greendrop is not for novices or kids unless you have proper hiking shoes - very easy to turn ankle especially on a wet day. Arrived at Greendrop in about 2hrs . Was all the hard work and sweat worth it?... For me, not really. Sure it's more secluded and less crowded then Lindeman so it would be great to backpack and set up camp, but as a dayhike -not worth the effort. There is very little beach area to stretch out and chill unless you care to venture on, but we were too tired so we just ate lunch and headed back. Last but not least, remember to pay close attention to flags and ribbons on the way back because it's easy to get lost....

                      Just got back from Greendrop lake. Took about 30mins to get to Lindeman Lake. Be careful going up and down as it is very very icy. Further along, heading towards Greendrop lake there was snow the entire way. I mostly followed the trail left by other hikers. The snow wasn't bad because it was hardpack but stay on the footpath or you'll sink into the deeper snow. Markers seemed to be plentiful and visible the entire way, with the exception of a few spots where you have to stop look for a marker or where the tracks pick back up. The hike to Greendrop past Lindeman is a beautiful one. GDL is completely frozen over but I resisted the temptation to walk on it. All in all, great day. It took me a total of 3 hrs and 15 mins from the road to GD and back.

                        This is a great little hike. I have done it in summer and winter and it was solid both times. Can easily be competed in 2 hours and the lake is really beautiful, although it is also really cold.

                          Perfect little private lake to visit. Not too long not too short, took us about 40 mins up and 30 down. I brought my chihuahua who loved every minute of it.
                          Would definitely recommend doing, although it is such a beautiful place I wouldn't mind going up there to camp either.

                            Loved this hike, took our Yorkshire terrier with us and he loved every minute of it. It's tough in places and sturdy footwear is recommended but I saw all types of people walking the trail. The lake is a great reward for a lovely hike. Next time I will bring a tent for the (I would guess at) 10x10 camping platforms. The pup made short work of this trail and was fine over the log bridge and boulder sections. Take a camera

                              Aug 22, 2015, ~40min to top and ~30 down.
                              Intermediate level with steep incline and some fun boulder climbing in between.
                              Beautiful lake and surrounding mountains. Absolutely worth the hike.

                              Appears to be SUPER BUSY on weekends. Go early if you prefer some privacy or hike a little further towards the other side of the lake. Parking lot was full and spilled out to the road side by about 1:30pm when we made our way back down.

                              Saw a lot of dogs (big and little) up at the top and their owners said they had no problem navigating the trail so depends on your pooch's athletic ability, I suppose.

                                  Challenging trail for beginners. There are steep sections with slippery/lose rocks. Sturdy shoes with good grip are highly recommended.

                                  The lake is beautiful and a perfect spot to take a break. The water was too cold for swimming but it's great for cooling down our feet. We had lunch at the sandy beach area and headed back to the parking lot afterwards. Overall this is a very enjoyable hike.

                                      I went to Lindeman Lake first week of July. the trail was great and beautiful. The lake is gorgeous! After the Lindeman the trail become much worse with big boulders rocks, I feel like a mountain goat :-). Even categorize as dog friendly, I do not think it is. My big 98 pounds German Sheppard dog had problems walk through that rocks, steep incline & narrow trails, not to mention has to cross the half log bridge. As much as I want to bring my dog, but if I want to go again, I will do it without my dog.

The lake is definitely worth it :) It's absolutely breathtaking, especially on a sunny day. It is also dog friendly and family friendly. Just make sure you're extra careful when you're heading back down!

                                                    I highly recommend visiting this place. The hike was not what I thought it would be-but I was able to do it! The hike had moments where it felt like I was doing the Grouse Grind all over again, but that part of the hike doesn't last long, maybe 15-20 minutes? It was steep in some areas, and you would have to be very careful when you hike down as you could slip from loose debris. The best part of the hike was seeing the big rock, because that let's you know that you are almost there! It was such an amazing moment when we finally got to see the lake. The water is absolutely breathtaking, but extremely cold (we hiked in August 2014). You could spend hours there just being blown away by this natural beauty.

We continued on along the lake. We made it back to our snacking area in an hour and 15 min. My knee got tired from climbing over rocks, but I did it. It took us 45 min to climb down. Again, I was cautious with my knee. I was pretty proud that I did it...one step at a time and at a pace that my knee could do. I highly recommend this adventure!!!!
                                                        Today there were orange markers to follow. It would be great if someone went in and replaced the missing or broken ones!

Was a great easy hike with a few steep rocky sections. Dad (aged 61) considered it to be more of an easy/intermediate trail due to some steep sections.

Breathtaking view! My friends and I continued a bit, crossing the boulders and log bridges but the trail was getting tough so we turned back.

                                                                    Perfect trail for beginner/intermediate hiker.

Bring lots of water and wear proper clothing. It can get really cold. So rewarding when you make it to the top!

                                                                                Attempted to carry onto Greendrop as it says on this site its only around 30min past the north end of Lindeman. We had a dog with us and trying to get across the boulder fields with her was almost impossible in the weather, I would not recommend taking a dog further than Lindeman unless the weather is better. We carried on for almost an hour, the lake is high right now so the usual path to Greendrop was flooded and we encountered a number of people coming back who informed us that it would be around another 2hr at least to reach the lake, moving across more boulder fields and some snow. We turned back an set up camp on the wooden platforms at the south end of Lindeman. Great night.

Greendrop itself wasn't as nice in my opinion, but the challenging hike from Lindeman to Greendrop was very cool. The boulder fields are tough, I recommend proper footwear(you'll need the ankle support!) I'd say from Lindeman on to Greendrop is about another 60-90 minutes, depending on conditions and choice of pace. I don't think I'd hike all the way to Greendrop again, now that I've seen it once, but Lindeman is a hike that I'll continue to enjoy at least once each hiking season.

I was sweating but once you get to the lake , gosh is it well worth it =) Beautiful scenery all the way up and the water is such awesome shades of blues and greens. I didn't think I was going to make due to being so out of shape but a little encouragement can go along way. I planon going back after a few smaller hikes to prep myself.

                                                                                      Took about 4hrs to hike to Greendrop and 3 hrs to come back(carried equipment to camp overnight). Snow encountered probably around half way mark to Greendrop but was able to walk through with hiking shoes, not boots.

                                                                                      The lake was nice, but the trails leading up to Greendrop were even better.

Attempted to get to Greendrop but there's quite a bit of snow still up there. Made it 15 minutes past the sign post to Flora Lake. I've never been to Greendrop before so I wasn't too sure how much farther we had to go, the markers got a bit scattered, there was a river randomly running beneath the snow, sink holes and just alot of messy snow. So we turned back. Looking back at the map now we were ohh so very close to Greendrop, but the conditions weren't great to continue on. However there were footprints in the snow from other people that looked like they were able to trek on to Greendrop, but again the footprints were scattered around everywhere and hard to follow a direct path. Bear sightings in the area just past Lindeman lake so be vigilant and make noise along the trails.

Made it to the lake in about 50 minutes and met up with a camping group from a local high school. It was awesome to see them with their camp set up for the weekend and hope they had a great time...weather was supposed to stay nice :). On our way down met another group on their way up to camp and hope they had a great weekend too. Would definitely hike the trail again and recommend it to others. There are a few slippery rocks and logs to climb over or around. The lake is beautiful and clear and worth the hike for sure.

But we did go down the road to Chilliwack Lake and it was preety but the water is way too cold. If you had a boat and went out there it would be nice for that reason but I don't think it would be good for swimming. You can also camp at Chilliwack Lake which is nice but as for Lindeman Lake you have to climb over a mouatin which is not a very safe idea!!

We continued to the north end of the lake looking for the beach, but it seems it went the way of Atlantis (underwater). We were planning to continue on to Greendrop, but ran into a couple of hikers who had just done the journey and said it was muddy and difficult. Their obvious disappointment helped us make the decision to be satisfied with what we had already done, so we turned around. I loved this hike -- it was worth every minute of the long drive out there.

                                                                                                          I dove off a rock into the water and can attest to how cold it is! I'd suggest bringing a wet suit if you plan on staying in the water for an extended amount of time.

                                                                                                          I hear there is great fishing but we didn't have much luck on this front. A local had advised that best fishing is late August.

We tried to make it to Greendrop Lake but 10 mins from the lake the trail was under too much water. You also had to pick and choose your trail and climb over alot more rocks then normal cause alot of the original trail was also flooded. It was a beautiful hike none the less. The trail to Lindeman Lake was fine.

I had hiked teapot and mount thom earlier this week, and was not entirely prepared for the amount of difficulty. There were some spots that did not look like trail and some gnarly spots between rocks. There is no cell reception so bring a buddy thats for sure. I wouldnt recommend bringing pets.

                                                                                                                    Fairly snowy at the top and was slippery coming down. Worth the hike thats for sure.

The lake was beautiful and the vine maples all around were coloured red. We continued on to Greendrop Lake which took a few hours. Lots of scree to hike over and it was wet and slippery when we were up there. The reward is another pretty lake, although it seemed like someone had been partying there, lots of garbage. Lindeman was nice and clean. The trails were easy to follow and it was a great little hike.

It was a great day. 4 of us in our party - 8 and 9 year old boys, my wife and I. It is a great length of hike (maybe an hour in) with the great reward of Lindeman lake at the end of the hike. It is a pretty solid incline all the way to the lake, but a very clean and well marked trail. Beautiful river alongside the majority of the hike. The lake is a mountain lake, and very cold, we could only stand to put our feet into it for a few minutes at most, but boy did it cool our water bottles quickly!

We were wearing hiking boots and going up was not so bad but it was truly dangerous on the way down. It was gorgeous to see the icicles and snow though.

                                                                                                                                  We started out late in the day, so we never made it to Green drop, but we were told by another hiker that he was knee deep in snow.

If you hike in about 20 minutes past the main campsite, there are many other secluded sites that weren't busy at all during the august long weekend. The place was one of my favorites sites in BC. However, my car was broken into sometime over the 3 days we were there, so be careful!
