    Route Description for Beth Lake

    The hike up to Beth Lake is a 17.2 km out-and-back route that climbs uphill into the mountains south of Squamish along a forest service road before breaking off onto a narrow trail for the approach to the beautiful waters of Beth Lake. Parking at the trailhead is limited, so hikers should arrive early in order to secure a spot and have some solitude out on the trail.

    The route climbs up to the lake with some nice variations in terrain, including a well-maintained stretch of service road, several creek crossings, and some overgrown paths on the final stretch to the lake. Although spotting trail markers might be tough in this last section, overall the trail is well-maintained and easy to navigate. After crossing the log bridge, hikers will arrive at the scenic shores of Beth Lake, a sight that is perfectly framed by a beautiful line of trees that stand in contrast to the rugged peaks above. While there may be more breathtaking hikes in the Squamish area, this trail certainly offers great views and has the added bonus of the tranquil lakeside atmosphere.

    Getting to the Beth Lake Trailhead
