The Perent lake by Snowbank or the one off Hog Creek? Snowbank and maybe 20-30 minutes. Hog Creek ep and I don't know how long.

The one by snowbank is Parent so I'm guessing you're talking the one along the southern edge of the park? Hog creek entry is about your only choice, pretty easy 2 hours or so. Coming from the west from like Isabella area sounds like it's not used much if at all after the fire over there years ago

Hog Creek ep will take you around 2 hours to get into the lake.

I went last summer when the water was low at end of June and it didn't take us two hours but it was at least hour and a half. Here is my trip report to give you some more intel:

Since the fire, that route seems to have been greatly reduced in people on it. I'm not sure you'll get a good answer here. Lots of portages, small water, and some closed campsites is all I know.
