This is not really a campable trail. Intended to be day use only because there are no front country campsites and too close to civilization and/or a ski resort to backcountry camp. Locals do it as 2~3 day hikes. Last section descending can be quite treacherous and the start of the trail not reachable by public transit because of a highway and hills, even though it looks doable on google maps. Use Whyte Lake trailhead as an alternative. If you live in Vancouver and this is all you can afford in terms of time, sure.
