Lindeman to Bareloon Lake

I didn’t feel very good during our last morning of hiking, so the climb to Bareloon Lake is remembered as being very harsh. It probably wasn’t that bad, but it was a climb and a half over one ridge after another. We arrived at Bareloon at about 11 and decided to have an early lunch that stretched into a two hour break complete with a siesta.

Bareloon Lake was an incredibly beautiful spot on the only swimmable (ie. not freezing) lake on the trail. The campground is built on a granite cliff and has an open sided lunch shelter. It is the only campground without bear lockers.

Some hikers choose to go straight from Happy Camp to Bareloon and then take a shortcut from Bareloon to ‘Log Cabin’ where there is a parking lot. Others will race from Bareloon to Bennett to catch the 2PM train back to ‘civilization.’ Sea to Sky opts instead for an extra night on the trail at Bennett, meaning that there is no rush to get there, which explains our leisurely lunch at Bareloon.
