Hiking Distance for Lindeman Lake: 3.4 km return (3 hours)
Best Conditions: June to October
Difficulty: Moderate

Description: Lindeman Lake is one of the most popular must-do, family-friendly Chilliwack-area hikes. It's short, not too difficult, and the beautiful lake is a great reward for your climbing effort. It takes between 20-45 minutes to hike to the lake (one way) and there is a fairly steep and rugged section that can be extremely slippery and dangerous (icy) in the winter. If you go on a sunny Saturday in Summer don't be surprised to see a dozen (or two!) cars in the beautiful new gravel parking lot. There are a handful of raised tent platforms near the lake's edge making this a popular elementary school-trip overnight camping spot.

Directions: Drive 40.5 km from Vedder Crossing along Chilliwack Lake road. Just before you get to the Chilliwack Lake turnoff, you'll see the Lindeman/Greendrop gravel parking lot on the left (no more parking on the side of the road, yay!). After a few minutes of hiking you'll be surrounded by old-growth trees and beautiful views of Post Creek. These views alone make the whole hike worthwhile. Ten minutes into the hike the trail gets steep. Before you know it the trail levels off and you'll be at Lindeman Lake. Continue on to the far end of Lindeman Lake for some better views of the lake and surrounding peaks. Those looking for a longer hike can continue on past Lindeman to Greendrop lake.

Special Notes:
Be sure to follow the orange, SQUARE trail markers. This is especially
essential once you are past Lindeman lake. There are alternate trails going different directions and 1 or 2 going to Flora lake. Flora lake is a nice hike for those with the proper long-distance hiking and/or overnight camping gear.
