Oct 31, 2016 Sunny last Friday so grabbed the chance to go up to Greendrop Lake. Not much to add to Jen and Kerri's recent descriptions except to say I found their reports quite helpful. Agree that the 1st boulder field is the most impressive -BIG boulders indeed. My daughter's Blue Heeler was too scared to try it and we had to coax him over. He was fine with the other boulder areas but I would think twice about bringing dogs along, especially if the rocks are wet or icy. My advice on that 1st field is to stay low and look ahead. Also at the far end of Lindeman look up and across at the gargoyle mountains, easy to miss if you're too focused on those boulders! Lots of old growth fir on this hike too. At some point there is a log across Post Creek which helpfully has wire on it. Unfortunately at the very end there is a spot without wire.I managed to find it and went flying. Didn't hurt myself but broke one of my hiking poles grrr!
Lindeman Lake is named after Chilliwack pioneer Harry Lindeman who apparently used to cart fish up the trail to stock the lake (this from Dawn Hanna's "Best Hikes & Walks of Southwestern BC"). Good on ya Harry!
