This is a reasonably steel hike, it starts out in the woods and you be going uphill through them for the first 4 kilometers or so. After that it flattens out when you enter the Alpine meadows.

Absolutely beautiful hike. Wildflowers are blooming up in the meadows and the snow starts soon after that. I didn't end up going to the lake as I didn't fancy picking my way down the snowy slope to it so instead I climbed up to the peak.

The path of to a peak was a bit of a slippery scramble in the snow, I ended up using my poles as makeshift ice axes and I wouldn't do it without microspikes. Once you get you the peak you're treated with an amazing 360 view of the surrounding mountains. If you decide to head up to the peak when the snows gone I'm sure it would be much easier though.

short hike. done in mid june. hlaf of the trail was still covered by snow. bring your crampons. rewarding when you reached the summit.

Great litttle hike. Took my 10 month old daughter up in a carrier and it was fairly easy and the inclines were pretty gentle for the most part.

Definitely need a 4x4 to get to mount cheam. If you don’t like we didn’t we walked the road 12km in. We didn’t get to the peak not enough day light and or time add on another round trip of 4hrs to the peak and back down to the car it would of been late. Traveled June 15th. Lots of snow still up at cheam.

Took the kids it was fun counting teapots along the way

Loved this hike! The scramble was rad - definitely my highlight next to the view from the top. A must-do!!

I really like this walk for a quick cardio. Up and down all the way with a nice small stair climb at the end. Beautiful trees and plants in this walk.

Short and sweet ascent. Tricky FSR drive in. Had to rescue a few people after their cars didnt make it. 4WD and high clearance is necessary. Insist on doing this on clear day as the views down the valley are amazing.

Absolutely 100% worth it, but you will need a 4x4 or something with good clearance to make it up the service road, Incredible views from the peak aswell. will be doing again one day

A good short hike that gets your heart beating from the start and easies off at the middle for the next hill to the top. It takes 32 min to the top at a fast walk unless you jog.

Fun hike, lake wasn’t quite worth it though, squelchy and not the best for swimming, although very nice and cold after a hot summer hike.... didn’t go further to Mt Webb which might have made it more worth it.

Beautiful but go early because it’s way to popular and gets real busy.

.... parking lot is right on the highway so access is super easy ....excellent views of the area once out of the trees and to the false summit ... although fun exploring, the views from the true summit were non existent due to tree cover and you will have a choice to make since there is a rather steep decent and and then more uphill to reach it . ( but ,hey .. why not if you have time)

One of my favourite trails to hike, hate the drive up.

Great day with amazing clear blue skies. A bit cold for the dogs, -22 or so but they survived. Once we got past the tree line it got a bit windy so we turned around about 1/2km from the top. Beautiful scenery throughout and the trail is well tracked so very easy to follow. Took us about 2 hours up and one down. Definitely would like to come more frequently but road conditions on the connector and coquihalla are just terrible this time of the year. Witnessed several vehicles off the road and one three car pile up. Road was closed temporarily on our way home due to MVA.

Only made it to the 5.5km mark up and had to turn back due to snow and being so slippy.

it was a rough ride by truck to get to the start of the trail but the views at the top were unreal!

Went up Sept 22, just a bit of snow at the top. Dogs can go most way but not to the actual "needle point" at the very end. Snow makes the last climb to the top a bit sketchy. Wear gloves as not to cut your hands while scrambling up the rocks. Follow the orange markers. Great leg workout!

Good trail with most of the elevation gained in the first hour. Then, a glades ridge walk. Flatiron Peak and lake off to the right at the end of the ridge are worthwhile. Needle Peak is a scramble - only for the athletic immune to vertigo. Needle Peak is blocky rock and easier than it looks; but stay in the centre. No water on trail.

Steep going in some places but the city lights at the top are so beautiful! not to mention the stars! if you've done this one before I highly recommend staying over night at the summit just for the view.

My daughter loves looking for all the teapots! Makes for an enjoyable hike! Would have given 5 stars if the view at the end was more spectacular.

Hard but worth it.

2 hours up in a 4x4 and one flat tire (plus the return drive) and it's worth it. We spent almost five hours on the mountain with our large group that included kids (4 hours hiking). The stunning views start before the trail head and just don't stop. 2 hours to the 360 degree summit going slow, then back to finish off the hike with a swim in a gloriously refreshing watering hole = perfect day!

Hard to get to but worth the bumpy drive. Short and sweet hike, not particularly easy . Awesome views from the beginning.

The drive up the hill was harder than the hike. We have a CRV and I questioned if we were going to make it up. Glad we did though. One of the more scenic hikes I've been on in awhile. View from the top was amazing, but quite a few people there.

Awesome trail. The lower lake is beautiful and the water is perfect to swim!
The upper lake is even more amazing but the water is freezing!!
Then the peak was outstanding! Absolutely worth the 45min climb from the upper lake.

We were stung by a couple of wasps but they don't hurt that much. Most of them were between the two lakes with 2-3 nests along the way.
I highly recommend trekking poles if you're camping an are bringing a heavy pack as the steep trail will kill your legs on the way up and crush your knees on the way down.
There are plenty of blueberries near the top, especially on the way to the peak.
If you hear whistling near the top (high pitch single whistle), it's most likely marmots.

Going down is super fast. I think it took us about 2-2.5h from the upper lake.
