Great if you want a workout but at 2800 ft climbing over 1.8 miles it is nearly 30% average grade and feels like it. Not the most enjoyable due to the effort. Great views at top but throngs of people there from the gondola lift. Extremely crowded trail as its a "thing" in Vancouver.


I did this one a few months ago it was awfull...never again!thers other trails one can do,instead of having to run into people all the way up,that looked like theyr ready to passed out!!im in great shape and I must say if you have heart or blood pressure problems or knee surgeries Dnt even think about it.Good luck!

I really enjoy this trail because of the stairs. I wish it were less busy though.

This is a must just for the physical experience. We had a great time and a awesome lunch up top

It was kinda cloudy when we went so the lakes looked really cool but there wasn't much to see at the lookouts. The first bit has a lot of traversing uphill but once you're up there it's gorgeous!

nice easy hike, and a great swimming lake at the end. good hike for dogs too.

start early to avoid large groups of people and enjoy the grind.

Awesome spot to escape the rain from comox often need 4x4 to make the last 1/2 km in the winter or a set of chains. take the family sledding for the day in the snow. Rain at sea level is normally snow there in the winter.
Bring some fire wood or a portable BBQ, all kinds of sledding stuff and spend the day outdoor with the family. Promise of a great night sleep after

it is a good hike to Cabin lake, Black Mountain and Eagles Bluff. Not very difficult but a good work out. A lot of people there caused a lot of traffic jams on more technical sections.

Great workout, super busy trail. Great test of endurance.
Not mentioned here. You are NOT supposed or allowed to hike down it. Its too crowded. There's an other trail that is longer but easier but most take the cable cart down. (I didn't know until i reached the top).
Food and drinks with a superb view available at the top.
