This hike and the area around it have recently been included in the new Chilliwack Lake Provincial Park. You follow a section of the Centennial Trail on its crossover from the Chilliwack Valley to the Skagit Valley, remaining close to the Post Creek valley bottom throughout and glimpsing some striking views of one-time glaciated valleys. Along the way you pass the two lakes, Lindeman and Greendrop. Best of all, the trail’s relatively low level means that it remains open when higher trails are under snow. Note that B.C. Parks plans to move the trailhead to a new parking area at the head of Chilliwack Lake. When this change is implemented, the initial access described below will not apply.

There is not an officially maintained trail for this hike. You start at obvious trailhead with name and distance to both lakes but from there you have to follow markings left by fellow hikers. Fortunately the route is popular and marked well. The path leads along two beautiful lakes nested in the mountains. Be prepared for some scrambling if you want to go all the way to Greendrop Lake since numerous rock fields and stream crossing will challenge your skills as soon as you reach Lindeman Lake. The rock and logs can be very slippery when wet so be prepared to adjust your pace accordingly if raining.
