One of the best hikes in Bc, there are many different routes u can take from behind the mountain... goin to the 3rd peak is a must. Less ppl and unreal views! I strongly recommend goin back from the back of the mountain. Bring food and snacks so u can take a nice long break when on the 3 re peak! Enjoy

Amazing. We did the peaks in order and then descended from 3 straight to the base. Amazing!

Short and strenuous hike. The hike is a well marked and even includes portions with stairs, ladders, and hand rails. It's marked as hard, but I think it was one the edge of moderate and hard. You're gaining elevation, so that makes it somewhat tough.

Great views of Squamish and the surrounding area. A great hike to do if you're in Squamish and you're looking for an alternative to mtn biking!

Beautiful view! Make sure you have the right gear. It's not the easiest and you are climbing mountains so it's not for the easily tired or weak.

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.

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.
