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!
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
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.
