5 hour hike to St.Marks Summit. Bowen island lookout and the view at st. mark summit are 5 stars.

great hike. we went to st marks summit. it was a bit muddy near the last 1/4 of the hike but the views were well worth it! we will definitely do this one again next year!

wonderful little trail. Very scenic

Long, (medium) tough but worth it.

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!

This was an easy trail that can be completed in a very short time. We did this trail in combination with Bowen Lookout Trail. It is a family friendly and dog friendly walk in the woods

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

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.

So fun! It's a decent length to St Marks Summit which is where we stopped and turned back. It was very muddy so bring proper hiking shoes/boots for stability and so you don't wreck your runners. Bug spray is also helpful, especially towards the top. There's some steep inclines and nicer small descents to break things up. I'm excited to try this again later in the season when hopefully it dries out a bit more. Lots of people later in the day so go early to avoid crowds.

Have an afternoon to kill? This is a great trail. Takes almost the same time up or down. I had to do it 3 times to finely have a view other then clouds. This is one of my favourite trails. Not too hard, not too easy. Just hard enough to be happy to sit down when its done.

We did this trail on June 27,2016. The trail is not diffcult, but it is unmarked, and it is easy to get lost. However, we download the map from the alltrails, it helps a lot. The view of the upper fall is good.


Its a beautiful hike. We went till Saint Marks summit and then turned back. There is still some snow up there but its totally doable till Saint Marks summit and I would say the view is worth the hike. I ll probably to do the entire trail sometime later in July again after the snow has melted.

It was not easy trial for me, but it is beautiful!

Very steep start, and not recommended after alot of rain as it gets pretty muddy but the views are spectacular. Recommend finishing up to Eagle Bluffs before heading back down.

This was probably the fastest hike I've ever done! Uber quick if you want to get out of the city
