Good view, but trail is not as scenic

We started from a non public trailhead, which was great. We didn’t see any other people the entire hike. Parts were very wooded yet others were on a fire road with overhead power lines. That’s why we only gave it a 3 star rating.

Perfect for a quick hike to get your heart rate up. Straight up and a nice view.

Good views and a nice loop.

The trail head is easy to find. It leaves from parking lot, and as you pull into the lot the trail head is on your left. Great workout. Hour up to the summit, and an hour getting down. I thought it was more like 2 miles to the summit from the parking lot. Peaceful, but enough traffic that I didn’t feel unsafe. The trail is well marked, and a nice view from the top. Shaded almost the way.

Not Easy, loose dirt and rocks in places

Beautiful trail. Stunning arbutus. I found sections of the trail aren't really run-able: either too steep or loose gravel and steep or too rocky and steep. But the climbs keep you're heart working and the views are lovely. Saw clear to Mt Baker today.

Beautiful beach

Great hike through forest. A lot of up and down where hiking poles are a great help. Carry water for your dog as few creeks.

A good blend of rolling smooth and mildly challenging rough terrain, perfect for a 60min run. Frequent, spectacular views, too.

Great hike would do it again. Wide clean path to start and then narrows somewhat with rocks and roots. Wonderful view at the summit.

great hike, lots of fauna

beautiful views, but very exposed to wind and inclement weather

the timberman trail offers a more scenic route over the McKenzie trail. I recommend doing both to get the full experience

Nice hike, great view

Beautiful hike. Well traveled and easy to follow. I would agree with earlier posts that this is not an easy hike due to length and elevation....it was the equivalent of 137 floors on the Apple iPhone step tracker. It is has some fantastic views!

Long steep flat hill.. :(

Nice day today. Perfect temp.

very well kept trail, lots great viewpoints looking across and down the inlet. Beautiful stands of arbutus, along the whole hike.

Beautiful and easy!

Awesome hike! Wouldn’t rate it as “easy”, though! A fair amount of elevation gain going up the Timberman trail. Well marked, mostly forested trail with some nice view points along the way to Jocelyn Hill. Took us four hours at a comfortable pace and a food break up top.

Loved it!!!! Beautiful scenery. Loved the arbutus trees. ❤️

Well marked trail with great views.
Quite well maintianed trails with ample parking for November.
A little snow today made for a Winter Wonderland effect in the forest sections.

great after work hike

Beautiful view at the end! I got engaged here.

Great hike! Did this on a sunny and warm day in early September - was very hot and almost not wind. Sweating buckets even in the shade. The trail is very well marked and easy to follow. Not too many people, some dogs on leash, great views at the top of the loop (mostly in forest otherwise). I feel it was more likely four hours of movement time. Lots of ups and downs, many are quite rocky so poles are a good idea.

great hiking here. it's fun to hike up then go down and go back up and down again. each side is a little different. long drive to get to but worth it.
