Beautiful walk around one of the most spectacular gardens you will ever see. Not to be missed if you are in the area. Sunken Garden is my fave.

The best hike. Kids and dog like it too. Took gondola down , pay 15$ for adults and dog. So worth of money than knee pain.

I wish the description or reviews mentioned it is pay to park ($3.50 per hour).

Great hike, well marked, food and drinks at the top, epic views and a ride back down...no excuse to miss leg day.

definitely an experience. pleasant and easy!

amazing views, challenging trail, less crowded than most local trails. trail is 7.5km one way and would be a challenge going down so the tram down is worth the $15. dogs could do the trail but keep them on a leash, especially near the falls. sadly a sign to leash your dog had to be made because an owner didn't have common sense. dogs are not allowed near the Cafe building either.

Well marked, surprisingly busy hike and a very good workout. Took us just under3 hrs with a couple stops. 7.5 km one way. Took the gondola down.

Great hike! Very well marked, and definitely not a boring hike! You get great views and close to Shannon falls, hike under the gondola at some points. There are short rock faces where there are ropes to assist. Quite steep but parts where it evens out.
We are relatively fit and it took us exactly 3hrs one way up. Best part is there is ice cream up at the top of the gondola! And an awesome view obviously :)

Exploring this trail, bike or walk, is an amazing way to spend half the day. Many beautiful views, pit stops along the beach for a dip in the ocean, and even public washrooms.
super family friendly.
I've done the route a few times already and will probably do it a few more times.

great hike and some amazing views along the way!

Almost 10km, amazing views ! I did several times.

Bikes around the trail. There are some spots where cyclists have to dismount. Washrooms along the way.
Very scenic and stunning.
Bustling with people eager to get out with their families and loved ones for the day.

Great trail with lots of different terrain, just don’t miss the sea to sky turn off or you’ll end up climbing the chief and the sea to sky all in one day!

We done the sooke 2 leechtown part of the trail. Seen some cool sights and got a swim in the river too. Was easy to do.

Great trail, lots of variety with rope pulls, stairs, and light scrambling in sections. Heavy trail traffic along portion that follows the Chief but dispersed afterwards. Well-marked, in great condition, and various viewpoints along the way. Completed in just under 2.5hrs with minimal stops. Opportunity to explore other trails and activities at the top. Take the gondola down for $15.00, would not advise taking trail.

Biked the trail, it offers some really amazing views. It’s a good idea when you want to have a active yet relaxed day. After half way we had a little picnic and then continued.
Early morning is the more serene and blissful time to do it.

Super rewarding hike! I honestly believe the stairs are the worst part. The ropes on the rock sections are lots of fun and I did it all in a pair of running shoes! Took me about 3 hours and took the gondola down for $15 because my legs were dead. Best of luck!

Hiked this on May 5, 2018. A bit of compact snow probably pass 6 km. No need for snow shoes or crampons. I hiked this with my hiking shoes but your runners with a good grip will work too. Good long hike. Well marked. Great view up top and there’s plenty of food at the lodge. 15$ to ride the gondola down.

I did this trail last summer and it was amazing. It wasn’t like the grouse grind. It is less stairs and more of an uphill walk. There are parts that make you use your arms to pull you over rocks and sometimes there are ropes too. That’s why I like this trail. It is not that busy too. You start the trail on the chief so it is busy but this trail cuts out of the crowd after 20 minutes. It takes an average person about 3-3.5 hours but I did it in just over 3 hours.

Very easy walk with views.

If you are fit this is a lovely hike. Yes it’s hard at the start but if you take your time to enjoy the views it makes for a great day. Costs $15 to take the gondola down which is worth it not to twist an ankle.

Love this at beginning of hiking season! Lol my hiking season haha perfect starter hike for the big uns

flat, short easy trail..

Very easy. Toddler and stroller friendly.

The hike started abit crazy at first. Felt grouse grind all over due to the stairs. Although once you get to the chief/sea to summit separation section everything changes. So far the most amazing hike I have ever done. I really took my time and enjoyed every bit of it.
There are a couple sections thou, the loose rock section and the rope climbing one are not all easy. The last section with the rock was alittle insane to me. Did it in April so the last 25% was full of snow. Be careful as some sections get really deep.
All and all this was an amazing hike for a moderate level hiker, well worth exploring before hitting harder hikes.

Favourite seaside ride. Part of the seawall that extends from the Park to Yaletown, then on to the Science Centre and around to Granville Island all the way to Spanish Banks and UBC.
