Niles Meadows Professional Review and Guide

"A nice climb past Sherbrooke Lake to Niles Meadows. If you wish, you can scramble to the ridge just 500 meters below Mount Niles Peak—the view from here is breathtaking. The hike: This hike to Niles Meadows is fantastic. Pass by popular Sherbrooke Lake, and follow the trail along Sherbrooke Creek, its falls, and through a spectacular meadow with large boulders that invite you to enjoy this perfect lunch spot.

From here continue to Niles Meadows, where we would highly recommend completing the easy scramble to the ridge below Mount Niles (2,972 m); the 360-degree view of mountains and snowfields is jaw-dropping. You can see the ranges of Lake O’Hara—Wiwaxy Peaks (2,703 m), Mount Huber (3,368 m), and Mount Victoria (3,464 m)—as well as Cathedral Mountain (3,189 m) and Vanguard Peak (2,464 m) to the south. Mount Ogden (2,695 m) sits to the west, and the Bath Glacier, Mount Daly (3,152 m), Paget Peak (2,565 m), and the Great Divide lie to the east."
