Connect to coxhill for a point to point. Great hike along nice open ridges

Great hike with stunning views at the top!! Nov 27/17 Trail was well worn so no spikes needed. Extremely windy on top.

We did Tyrwhitt to Highwood— magnificent view!

Good trail.

a lot of exploring to do up top, check it out, take a look around.

The first half of this hike was fantastic, beautiful time of year to be out in the mountains. Unfortunately the conditions once we crested were extremely windy and hiking the ridge line was sketchy due to this. The way down from Pocaterra was very difficult and you need to be very aware of hikers above you sending down rocks, not for the casual hiker or faint of heart. All in all it was a great day, just be aware the the "Hard" designation is not wrong on this one.

We hiked this 3x in a week in June, so beautiful, one of our favourite, the only issue is you have to drive in dirt road 18 kms.

Always a favourite. Easy hike.

Tricky to find trail around the river crossing. Bring crossing shoes. Nice steady climb.

Did it today with my sister who is a beginner hiker. Beginning is switch-backs, manageable for a beginner if you take your time. There wasn't another soul on the trail. Being just the two of us made me worry about bears in the open parts, but luckily all we saw for wildlife were some chipmunks. Great views at the top from both sides. Would recommend.

Diverse trail with a river crossing early on, so prepare accordingly. You'll also find some steep sections towards the end to make this a bit more challenging than advertised. We had trouble figuring out where the actual trail ended, so keep an eye on the map! Great views once you're up there, though, and lots of nice spots to stop for lunch.

This is an great hike it's similar to tunnel mountain if you have ever hiked that one. The approach/drive is down dirt road a ways a way. Definitely worth the drive!

Nice walking trail not too steep perfect for beginners

The river crossing is quite high!! Be prepared!

About 35 min on a dirt road to reach the base. Decent climb, we had snow the night before so quite wet. Poles are a help. Not to steep, just a steady uphill climb. The views at the summit are spectacular! Would definitely recommend this hike. My husband did it with our one year old on his back, and me with a small dog. Fun for the whole family as it took about 3 hours.

I backpacked a piece of this trail anti-clockwise to Big Elbow back country campground and back out the same route, 20k in all. Very little elevation gain, wide open fire road, excellent views all the way of the surrounding mountains. There are 4 major washouts from the 2013 flood, 2 to be wary of. The first is the trailhead, it's gone from its original location at the Trailhead parking area. The trail has to be accessed via the suspension bridge a little further up. The second is at about 8km in, the trail is completely gone and a little skirmish up the river bank is required to get back to the trail. Temps in the high 20's in and out the next day. Camp ground had wood, an axe, toilets, bear lockups for your gear and great views. This was a training hike for me carrying 30lbs so I aimed for little elevation and short distance. My preference is elevated views hence only 3 stars

Me and a couple friends hiked this loop over 3 days, with camping planned one night at Mt Romulus backcountry campsite, and the other at Mt Tombstone backcountry campsite, and had a great time. The only concern for bikers is the LONG high pass between the two campsites (NW and SW corners of the loop), but otherwise is a good hike. We went in July, and woke up to snow the first morning, which quickly melted. The paths are good and worn for bikers and hikers alike, don't recall any real complications.
