We made the mistake of taking this hike in late may only to be hiking through 2 feet of snow, although beautiful we were not prepared at all. The second trip was amazing, the first part is pretty easy with not alot to see but forest and a lot of wildflowers. There are a few clearings and a bridge you cross before getting to a spectacular waterfall. Enjoy the scenery because the next section is tough. Several steep switchbacks then you come out into the bowl where Lake Bourgeau sits. We had a nice picnic on a huge rock lining the lake and decided not to continue on the 2.2km trek to Harveys Lake
