I've really debated how to handle this review, because the Shadow Lake Lodge itself is glorious. The location is amazing. The 8 mile hike in isn't too bad - just a bit of a climb at the end, and lots of boardwalks to help you...More

Response from shadowlakelodge, Front Office Manager at Shadow Lake LodgeResponded September 7, 2018

We appreciate your feedback Andrew and Kate. Looking into your recent stay at the lodge, the families had all booked individually, so it would be hard for our reservation team to know that they were coming in as a group. We do see a higher...More

We were looking forward to this trip since March! The hike to the Lodge is beautiful. Various estimates of the length were found on various sources. It is 6 miles of 2-track and then 2 miles of regular trail. The Lodge itself is well maintained...More

Response from shadowlakelodge | Property representative |
You are able to bike the first 12km on the Redearth trail, then you must lock your bikes and hike the last 2km. You will gain 1500' on this trail, there are a few good hills, but the trail itself is not challenging.
