Beautiful hike! So worth it! So many waterfalls along the way. We did the loop on our way back and you'll be on the side of a rocky mountain with spectacular views of the mountains and glaciers!

Always a blast doing this. Have done it multiple times. It's a fun hike. I would say it is comparable to grouse grind but with a little bit of chain section. Do it early for the parking space and for the view. If you are an experienced hiker, you can watch the sunset and make it back down before it gets dark.

This is a very easy and accessible out and back trail to a majestic tall waterfall. Appropriate for strollers and canes alike. Parking is a bugger, but there is usually spots left in the overflow parking across the street.

I went off the trail to get a real taste of this heavily populated tourist stop waterfall and I'm glad I did! The steps are intense but the terrain was lovely. Parking was a bit ridiculous, but I was there early enough that I only had to deal with the cutthroat spot takers as I pulled out.

Did this trail multiple times already. It has some difficult spots. First time, there was still ice and snow at the top. Without the chains to hold on to, it would have been too dangerous.
Great summer time trail. If you have the energy, do all 3 peeks. They all have different views.

Omg. This was a tough one. But a great one. It's a steep incline to get to all 3 peaks - I only made it to the first 2. It took about 4 hours or so. The trail is very well marked though and nicely maintained. I'd never used ladders, chains to pull myself up, etc... Before so I felt kind of badass. Highly recommend you bring lots of water and proper hiking boots for both the comfort of your feet and to not slip on roots & the smooth granite surface at the top. Will definitely be back to get that third peak in the future.

HARD! Straight up stairs made of wood, roots, & rocks. A few waterfalls along the way.
We've never done the first peak because there are too many people up there. The 2nd peak is well worth the chain rope for help hanging on, and the ladder to get to the top. Well worth it for views of Howe Sound, and the mountains. Lots of chipmunks, and an occasional raven. As with the road less taken, the 3rd peak is awesome and quiet, with spectacular drop-offs, and beautiful forests. We descended down the back side until it joined back with the main trail about half-way down.
Allow several hours. Take water & lunch. Save lunch for the 2nd dome, and the view.
