Elevation Gain: 460 m (1500 ft)
Distance: 6.5KM one way

This is a moderately difficult trail along the banks of Galatea Creek (in Kananaskis Country of Alberta, Canada) arriving eventually at Lillian Lake --- and if you’re adventurous enough, eventually reaching the upper and lower Galatea Lakes (roughly add another 1.6Km hike). Along with a suspension bridge over the Kananaskis River there are 10 other bridge crossings that zigzags back and forth over the creek as it gradually climbs the valley.

This trail involves plenty of uphill hiking, some determination and good foot work criss-crossing over foot and log bridges, over rocks and tree trunks, and over a very steep section.

Worried that we will not be able to make it back to the parking lot before evening, we turned around just roughly 1.5hours before Lillian Lake. The complete hike to Lillian Lake should take anywhere from 6-8 hours.
