I did this hike today and the last time was about 4 years ago.... it has become very eroded, a lot of the trail has been blown out and lots of silty sand. Great view at the top but some trail love needs to happen here before I go back.

Beautiful trail, perfect for beginners

Great workout. Gets real steep after chadsey lake..there are 2 viewpoints- the original is lookout is ok but go down to the left about 500 feet and the view is breathtaking.

I need to try this one again as we came across a young bear in the cave about 4ft from us. This was about 2.5 km in. He was terrified but we didn't want to risk him charging or an angry mama, so we turned around.
Could be better markers as we were unsure which way to go at several points.

I loved the experience

Lovely trail with good elevation gain

A good hike to start off the hiking season. steady challenge all the way up. Lots of flowers and pleasant smells. View was okay for me. kind of blocked by a tree or two.

Great beginner hike.

Great day on the trails! Seemed to be pretty busy - 6 cars parked at the road and about 10 people encountered while on the trail. Overall, peaceful and well marked. Trail is fairly narrow throughout, take caution on the loose rocks. Would do it again!

Makes for a good workout, but trail is rather dusty and viewpoint is just alright.

Easy to access but there is no formal trailhead so parking is just off the side of the road. The trail is well laid out and offers links to other trails. Beautiful little lake. I was glad to have the fully paid app as I wandered onto another trail and needed to rely on the app to gat back on track.

This is definitely a grind, it’s not too long of a hike, but it can be tough if you’re not use to going straight up, but it’s worth to try at least once. Pretty view of farm lands. The parking is next to the Abby gun range off exit #3.

Really liked this trail. It was a good workout to the lake. Had our friends dog with us and only encounter hikers on our way up to the lake. We were at the lake alone. A great hike and very well marked.

1st time doing the trail, good workout and not as hard as The Grouse Grind.

Very easy trail with views of the river on one side and farms on the other side. The only drawback, for me, is the inconsiderate pets owners who don't pick after their pets.

Did this trail today. Found the trail easily marked and easy to follow. The trail itself was easy to navigate and the elevation grew slowly enough to be an easy hike. Three 6 year olds and a 4 year old managed the climb, and two kids made it in back carriers (the back carriers are convenient, but beware of trail obstacles you may need to crawl under af times). .

Mosquitos were bad at the lake, and the lake wasnt clear for swimming at all (my dog stuuuuunk after his dip). Was a bit disheartened by the number of off-leash dogs we encountered as well as owners not picking up after their pets.

My garmin logged well over the 9kms (closer to 13 to the lake).

Would do again. The views of the valley between the trees are gorgeous.

Did this hike today. Was feeling good so I went on around Lake Chadsey and on up to the Sumas summit. I ended up logging 9.6miles (15.45km). About 3000 feet (914m) in elevation climbed. This was all according to the Garmin watch. I stopped at the lake which was empty for a rest and foot soak. This was a beautiful hike. All in all it took 4 hours at a fairly strong pace. I would plan for 4 hours to get to the lake and back. Canada is beautiful!

always fun but dusty

It’s a really good hike...short but a good workout!!!!

Great trail, love the incline. Soft dirt and dryness in the summer make for a dirty climb- wear pants- not shorts. Did the hike in just over an hour with a 50lb kid on the back and a 6 year old hiking (and a golden retriever). Good city view when the sky is clear.

Great workout

Great hike to get some elevation training. Super dusty which made it a little unstable and difficult to run but otherwise quite enjoyable.

Trail was beautiful and very rustic. Lake was empty and had the place to ourselves. Was lovely but not an amazing view and little views throughout the hike.

This is an amazing trail for a great workout.. especially running down the trail. Best to go early in the morning before the traffic gets too busy. My dog loves it too!

Nice hike that gets your heart rate up fast.. and it's not that far outside Chilliwack

Did this today via lower sumas, big black bear on xcelerator route, so we turned around. Be cautious.

There was a bear on the trail approx. 1.5 hours into the trail along the xcelerator route. . Big black bear be cautious if you're doing this trail.
