  • Site Description:The well defined trail to Hourglass Lake is popular with anglers, berry pickers and hikers, as it also provides access to a nearby tarn and a higher elevation cirque lake. All of these lakes are in spectacular settings. The trail to the tarn branches off the lakeshore trail along Hourglass Lake and heads north over a low rise. It is about 1 km from Hourglass Lake, with negligible elevation gain, to the tarn. The upper lake is reached by finding your own route, as you pick your way up the steep talus slope at the far end of Hourglass Lake. From Hourglass Lake it is an elevation gain of 300 m (980 feet) in I km to the upper lake. There are two primitive campsites, one in the neck of Hourglass Lake and one at the outlet of the upper lake.
