Great trial! Very challenging. Managed to get up it in 39 min. But it was a very hard push.

Fantastic trail. Not recommended for novices runners/hikers.

Straight up hill grind. Bring a vehicle with AWD/good ground clearance and park at the end and then start your ascent.. Bring snacks and water!

Definitely not an EASY ascent, with the high steps between roots and rocks. But not the hardest hike I've ever done by any means

Soooo pretty even on a soggy day ... would love to see it in the sunshine

Easy short walk ... nice super quiet suspension bridge for free (Capilano was expensive)

easy!

My fav so far - technical terrain but great for kids as well, lots of rocks, roots, streams of water, flowers and great spot for a snack break by the lake. Fog was a bonus!

Awesome hike!!! Super steep, lots of stairs and have to hold on to chains towards the top. Distance isn’t long but it’s slow going. Don’t bring your dog.

Super gorgeous views! Very muddy and somewhat crowded but still worthwhile

This is a great easy trek to the bridge, however there are no trespassing signs posted multiple times along the trail. Once at the tunnel, the trail up and around is quite sketchy, there are wires to help you up but still quite a ways down if you slip and fall. Definitely recommend good footing and good hiking boots for this one, however I’m sure it could be done in sneakers. Walking along the old rail bed is special and cool vibes through the trees. I wouldn’t do this trail in bad weather or super windy conditions for safety reasons.

Beautiful hike with lots of vegetation. Did this today, we did the Othello tunnels first then walked along the rail bed until we found this trailhead, quite steep sections so I definitely agree with other reviews about it should be rated as moderate, coming down the end of the trail back to the parking lot, I was glad we did it “backwards” as the end part seemed a lot steeper than coming up the back end of it. Depends if you want to start or end your trip with the tunnels/tourists.

Right now the Maple Ridge Water Reservoir is under construction, so part of the trail has some yellow fencing around it. You could begin the trail from 248th, 108th or 256th instead. Muddy when it has been raining.

Great trail, beautiful views, some spots not well marked so lost our direction a couple of times. Otherwise it’s a very scenic trail and once I can figure out the right path to take I will do it again!

The trail was absolutely pretty. It had everything, from dense greens to little creeks and of course the falls. No stairs so be mindful to wear the right shoes for some inclines. This was worth the trip.

Super steep hike! I recommend poles for the way down to save your knees (and keep you from tumbling down the mountain!).
Around a third to half of the way in there is a beautiful view point that's perfect for a lunch break.
The trail sikes you out a few times as there are a lot of great viewpoints where you think you have reached the end but you need to keep going up the ridge to summit Harvey! Highly recommend checking your gps to make sure you get all the way up. Quite a bit of scrambling/climbing needed.
Also, bring layers as the weather changes rapidly and can get quite cold.
Trail had awesome views of Howe Sound and the Lions if it's not too cloudy.

Beautiful lake at the end, expect some stair climbing on rocks instead of stairs. Great hike, loved it.

Nice little trail to stretch your legs. The falls are totally worth the pit stop.

Little hike with a big payoff. A picturesque autumn walk to the falls, which did not disappoint. There are several nice lookouts along the way that made for great photos. Use caution with animals and kids: some lookouts have sharp drop offs, and of course be careful at the falls. The trail would be fine for dogs on leash. Overall, I’d highly recommend.

Finally I got my chance to do this hike and got it off my bucket list. As mentioned in the other posts, the second and third quarters are steeper. Hardly any flat spots in general. The drizzle and moisture in the air added to the challenge. Stay hydrated and be prepared to sweat.

Extremely hard. Did it in one day. Started at 7 am and finished after dark at 8 pm. Late September. Very wet when I went. Made some of the stream crossings more difficult. You want dry rocks at the top for safer scrambling (which I had). The middle 4k is very hard. The last 15k is hard since one tends to be tired by then.
There is a new part of the trail not on my several-year-old map. At David peak, the trail goes right over the top. All Trails had it right.
Overall, prepare well and it is a fabulous hike scramble.

Trail closed! Trees unstable due to wildfire.

A little bit challenging going up but the view is well worth. You can go for a swim in the lake in the summer months.

We just did the 8-9 kms which ended at the last look out then returned back. Nice walk but more strenuous than it indicated but that’s ok.
No goats sighted and only 4 other hikers on route.
It was a pleasant workout.

The map needs to be updated. There is no walkway to cross Chancellor Blvd. along the Spanish Trail. I ended up turning back. Would have been nice to see a bit more foot traffic too (perhaps because the sky was a little gloomy). Nice, thick foliage though.

Beautiful figure eight loop. Both trails are open. Trail A has some road noise, Trail B is tranquil and quiet. Amazing spider webs on the trees when the sun hits them just right.
