Regarding trail Mount Macfarlane near Chilliwack, BC

http://www.trailpeak.com/trail-Mount-Macfarlane-near-Chilliwack-BC-771

Has anyone done this trail recently? I'm planning to do this hike soon, but was wondering if the trail is still in good condition after the past winter. Also, is there still a lot of snow near the summit?

Hi,

I did it last weekend and the trail was completely clear all the way to the base of the mountain (the avalanche meadow before you start your climb up to the upper lake). It was my first time, and I couldn't find the trail up to the upper lake within my allotted timeframe, so I had to turn back. However, it didn't appear like there was much snow left along the ridgeline.

Have fun!

I hiked up to the upper lake on August 12 and camped overnight, ascending the peak and back down on August 13. Trail is well marked all the way and snow free. Bridge over the creek has been rebuilt and other maintenance done. Watch out for yellowjackets on the way up, just after you cross the big avalanche chute and enter the old-growth forest with a downhill section about 1/2 the way to the lower lake.
