Squamish's Best Kept Secret
The 6.4km trail to Echo Lake is not for the faint of heart. The trail gains over 900 metres of elevation as it climbs from Howe Sound all the way to the top of Monmouth Falls. Along the way, there are peek-a-boo views of Squamish, starring down from the west side–a completely different perspective than any other hike. At the top, you will be rewarded with an amazing sub-alpine lake which during summertime is warm enough to swim in!
To access the trailhead you will need to boat across the Squamish River, in the summer, Squamish Watersports offers a boat shuttle. To book call 778-989-5483.
It is not recommended to cross the river without proper knowledge of tide charts. Use caution and plan your trip around the tides.
